On Wednesday, court filings confirmed what we have known for months: The Boston Marathon bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, received a $1,400 COVID relief payment this summer.

What’s most concerning isn’t just that a terrorist received $1,400 in taxpayer money. It’s that Senate Democrats had a chance to prevent this from happening, and declined. This includes Senator Maggie Hassan, who represents nearby New Hampshire and is a Boston homeowner.


Back in March, Senate Democrats rejected an amendment from Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) that would prohibit prisoners – like the Boston Marathon bomber, or Olympic sex abuser Larry Nassar, or convicted New Hampshire cop killer Michael Addison – from receiving a COVID stimulus check.

On what planet could someone justify sending a taxpayer-funded check to the man who killed and wounded hundreds of Americans in a terrorist attack?  We have no idea, but someone should ask Senators like Maggie Hassan, Mark Kelly, Raphael Warnock, Catherine Cortez Masto, and Michael Bennet.

Statement from NRSC Spokesman T.W. Arrighi: “The Boston Marathon bombing was a deadly terrorist attack that claimed four lives and wounded hundreds. Unfortunately, the surviving terrorist who perpetrated this evil received a fat stimulus check with taxpayers’ money because Senate Democrats refused to face down the woke mob and deny payments to prisoners. What’s more baffling is Senator Maggie Hassan, a Boston homeowner, was one of the approving votes!”
