Bobby Rush, Democratic representative for Illinois’ 1st District, has spent $402,044 so far during the 2019-2020 election cycle, with about $41,062 — one-tenth of his expenditures — going to his son, Jeffery Rush.

Isaac Wink, policy analyst at Reform for Illinois, said there may be a reason to keep close attention to these payments.
