PRESS RELEASE: McConnell defends speech rights of corrupt foreign company

Public Campaign Action Fund issued a press release today on the recent guilty plea to bribery by BAE Systems, a foreign-based company that has given heavily to Sen. Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) campaigns and received millions in earmarks.

 

“The question for Sen. McConnell is whether he believes foreign companies found guilty of bribery and defrauding the U.S. government ought to be able to spend as much as they want in elections,” said Donnelly. “Kentuckians expect and deserve a government accountable to the people who elected them – not corrupt foreign companies or big special interests who want a big return when they donate maxed out contributions.”
