MacArthur: Kim should explain Youngkin donations

By Nikita Biryukov, October 19 2018 11:03 am

Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-Toms River) on Friday called for opponent Andy Kim to explain why he took campaign donations from former Burlington County Freeholder candidate George Youngkin, who Democrats dropped after it was revealed he was previously arrested for a domestic dispute with his ex-wife.

“How Andy Kim could accept a contribution from his running mate, George Youngkin, after his history of domestic violence and abusing women was revealed is absolutely baffling, but not surprising,” MacArthur said. “After all, Andy Kim endorsed corrupt, career politician Bob Menendez at an anti-corruption rally; and he broke his pledge not to accept corporate PAC donations by spending $900,000 in coordinated expenditures with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee – which is flush with corporate PAC cash.”

Youngkin has donated at least $355 dollars to Kim’s campaign, with the latest donation having been made on Sept. 28, after Youngkin suspended his campaign, according to FEC reports.

Youngkin’s 2006  arrest was first reported by the Burlington County Times.
