Maine’s Speaker of the House sells unbelievable lie to Maine Press claiming she knows nothing about campaign finance laws.
AUGUSTA – Maine GOP Chair Dr. Demi Kouzounas released the following statement on the Sara Gideon’s claim that she was unaware she was breaking campaign finance laws:
“It’s beyond ridiculous that the Speaker of the Maine House claims she was unaware of even the most basic campaign finance laws. Anyone who runs for office knows that reimbursing yourself for federal election contributions through your corporate-funded PAC is not only illegal, but highly unethical.
“While Sara claims ignorance, her own fundraising website clearly outlines federal campaign finance laws regarding corporate donations and ‘straw donors.’
“Whether it is hypocritically accepting corporate money, to blatantly violating campaign finance laws, or pleading ignorance when she gets caught, it’s clear: Sara Gideon is either lying to the people of Maine or she thinks she can play by her own rules.”
