[Madison, WI]— Senator Tammy Baldwin cannot stop saying one thing and doing another.  After being honored by a groud tied with the powerful, dark money, League of Conservation Voters (LCV), Senator Baldwin took to twitter to celebrate her endorsement by End Citizens United, a group that claims to be working to end the influence of dark money in politics.
“After nearly two decades in Washington, Senator Tammy Baldwin has made a habit of saying one thing and doing another,” said Alec Zimmerman, spokesman for the Republican Party of Wisconsin.  “Instead of standing up for hard-working Wisconsin families, she’s too busy playing political games and appeasing liberal special interests in Washington to care.”
Background:
  • End Citizens United is a group that stands “… up for candidates who are under attack by corporate special interests and mega-donors, and their networks of Super PACs and dark money groups.”
  • Just a few weeks ago Senator Baldwin was honored at a reception for GiveGreen, a project of the League of Conservation Voters.
  • On top of that, last cycle she received nearly $10K from LCV in donations, in addition to the nearly $400,000 LCV spent on independent expenditures for Senator Baldwin.
  • The Center for Public Integrity put out a report labeling LCV as a “dark money heavyweight”.
