AUGUSTA, ME – Today, Dr. Demi Kouzounas filed an ethics complaint with the Maine Commission on Governmental Ethics and Election Practices and is urging an investigation of Sara Gideon’s corporate-funded Leadership PAC failing to disclose thousands of dollars worth of Facebook ads.
In addition to the undisclosed campaign spending, the Facebook ads appear to have promoted Sara Gideon, amounting to an in-kind contribution to her 2018 campaign, far exceeding the $400 per election contribution limit.
“Sara Gideon continues her pattern of unethical behavior,” said Dr. Demi Kouzounas. “First, the Maine Ethics Commission found Gideon broke the law by illegally using her corporate-funded Leadership PAC to reimburse herself for campaign contributions. Today, Mainers learn she tried to hide thousands of dollars worth campaign ads while also illegally boosting her own political ambitions.”
“Mainers know Gideon has long relied on corporate money, shady donors, and now illegally hiding campaign spending to further her political ambitions and give Maine’s voice away to Washington special interests.”
