SD 32’s GOP Nichi Farnham: “Running with the Wrong Crowd” (Video)
Oh my. Fresh on the heels of an ethics complaint against her categorized as a particularly galling and egregious violation of Maine law by Maine Dems’ chair Ben Grant and Bangor residents calling her out for ‘grievous infraction’ of campaign ethics, comes this latest video illustrating how SD 32’s State Sen. Nichi Farnham is “running with the wrong crowd” and away from her record. Give it a look:
“State Senator Nichi Farnham is running with the wrong crowd in Augusta. She’s been standing up for the weatlhy and selling out the middle class. She caved into the health insurance lobbyists and voted for a bill to allow them to raise premiums on small businesses and seniors. And then a PAC she controls took money from a health insurance company to run attack ads against her opponent, landing her in hot water with the Maine Ethics Commission. Nichi Farnham is now running from her record of selling out Maine’s middle class.”
For her part, the beleagured state senator yesterday issued a rather weak “Oops!” explanation for the alleged violations. A hearing by the Maine Ethics Committee has been set for October 31 to take up the matter.
