ICYMI: On Monday, @AngieCraigMN went on Facebook Live with flowery words supporting campaign finance reform in attempts to distract from her past of accepting corporate $$, hundreds of thousands from special interests, & millions in outside spending. #mn02 goo.gl/zwNFMo
First, @AngieCraigMN is against lobbyists running for office which is interesting following her time in charge of her corporate PAC responsible for dolling out nearly $750,000 in attempts to benefit her company. #mn02 goo.gl/zwNFMo
Then, @AngieCraigMN stated “it shouldn’t depend on how much money (candidates) can raise” after her opponent @ErdmannCD2 was pushed out by @DCCC largely due to his lack of ability to raise money, while Craig remained silent. #mn02 goo.gl/zwNFMo
The host indicated the ability self-fund as a barrier to everyday citizens running for office – something @AngieCraigMN excelled at in 2016, giving her campaign nearly $1 million. #mn02 goo.gl/zwNFMo
Even more, @AngieCraigMN tried to claim most outside $$ was spent against in her in 2016 – failing to acknowledge (once removing NRCC/DCCC $) that she benefited from $1.2 million in outside $ compared to the $10k for Lewis. #mn02 goo.gl/zwNFMo

.@AngieCraigMN bashed special interests once again while forgetting that she was the largest recipient of $$ from the medical supply industry in the ENTIRE country in 2016. #mn02 goo.gl/zwNFMo
To top things off, @AngieCraigMN stated ‘there is not a single corporate $ in my campaign’ which is in direct contrast to the $130k from St. Jude she took in 2016. And, the fact that this cycle, she is the top recipient from Abbott Labs. & Best Buy. #mn02 goo.gl/zwNFMo
For a 12-minute interview, there was a record number of hypocritical and questionable statements made by a candidate who supposedly stands for honesty and against money in politics…
