Tom Kean pushed back against Rep. Tom Malinowski’s claim that he doesn’t accept corporate PAC contributions, saying he accepts direct contributions from CEOs and that super PACS who support him are funded by corporations.
“Tom Malinowski is blatantly misleading voters when he says he does not take corporate PAC money,” said Kean. “He has Nancy Pelosi wash his money like Al Capone and at the end of the day, our Congressman from New Jersey has a nearly identical voting record with the Speaker from San Francisco.”
Kean, the minority leader of the New Jersey State Senate, is the Republican candidate against Malinowski in New Jersey’s 7th district.
In a League of Women Voters debate on Saturday, Malinowski said that he doesn’t take direct contributions from corporate PACS – adding an extra clarifier to what he says in campaign TV ads.
“We both have super PACS that are in this race, supporting us or opposing the other candidate,” Malinowski said. “That’s the system that Citizens United created.”
