Knute Buehler Must Return Dirty, Trump Money
The day of the final debate in Oregon’s gubernatorial contest, Republican Knute Buehler continues to attempt to cover up his real record of siding with the Trump administration, jeopardizing Oregon’s natural resources, and undermining affordable housing. But the campaign checks that are funding his misleading campaign ads tell the real story.
The Democratic Party of Oregon is calling on Knute Buehler to return all the dirty Trump money his campaign has received:
“As they say, follow the money. And in Knute Buehler’s case, the money he has taken leads straight to the abysmal record he has spent his campaign trying to cover up: his failure to stand up to the Trump Administration, his votes that jeopardized Oregon’s environment and natural resources, and his history of undermining affordable housing for Oregon families,” said Democratic Party of Oregon Chair Jeanne Atkins. “Buehler must return these contributions at once or be exposed yet again for the craven fraud he truly is.”
These contributions only account for the money Buehler himself has accepted for his campaign. He has also benefited from the shady dark money group Priority Oregon who has spent millions attacking and distorting Governor Brown’s record and is not required to disclose its donors.
