View Comments

The Dallas Morning News reports in its Saturday edition that her relatives weren’t the only ineligible recipients Dallas Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson chose for scholarships paid for by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation.The newspaper says its review of the scholarships shows at least five other college students who got the awards even though they don’t live in Johnson’s district or in that of any other caucus member.  That is one of the requirements listed by the foundation.

The Morning News had already reported that she awarded at least 23 scholarships in the last five years to two of her grandsons, two great-nephews, and two children of her top aide.
