Another week, another shady Republican campaign finance gimmick: A new report from the Indianapolis Business Journal finds that former Representative Mike Braun used a “finance ploy” to circumvent donation limits and plow more special interest cash into his campaign.
This report comes on the heels of the Daily Beast exposing wealthy east coast developer and Montana Senate Candidate Matt Rosendale’s use of an “audacious accounting maneuver” to make an “ambitious end-run around campaign finance laws.”
From Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman David Bergstein: “Rosendale and Braun are making their priority clear: take in as much special interest cash as possible to prop up their campaigns and fuel their political ambitions. Whether Braun and Rosendale are utilizing shadowy campaign finance tactics or pushing a wildly unpopular health care agenda that spikes premiums, imposes an age tax and jeopardizes coverage for pre-existing conditions, these two keep proving they only care about advancing their own self-serving political agenda.”
