Diehl pressure forces Warren to cave on Weinstein money; once again calls for her to donate Menendez funds

Whitman, MA … Today Representative Geoff Diehl (R-Whitman), candidate for U.S. Senate, once again asked Senator Elizabeth Warren to donate the tainted funds she has received from Senator Bob Menendez’s New Millennium PAC.

“While Senator Warren has donated the Harvey Weinstein funds, after we called upon her to do so yesterday, on our Where’s Warren’ Facebook page, she still hasn’t rid her campaign account of the Menendez money,” said Diehl.

 

“Senator Warren has complained about big money in politics.  She should first clean up her own war chest by donating the tainted funds she received from Senator Menendez’s PAC.  It is hard to believe that she accepted these funds after he was indicted on federal corruption charges.  Our Senator should now do the right thing and donate the money to the appropriate charity.  What message does this send by donating Weinstein’s funds but not Menendez’s? Is public corruption ok with her?”

According to FEC reports, Warren received $5000 from Menendez’s PAC for the 2018 Election cycle.  Senator Menendez is on trial for 18 counts of fraud and bribery.

Diehl first challenged Warren on September 12 to donate the tainted funds.  Warren has refused to do so.
