Iowa Progress: Is Ed Fallon A Hypocrite?
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Progress
Iowa Independent just published a story that reveals that
congressional candidate Ed Fallon has been hiding contributions to his
political organization, IM For Iowa. Although IM for Iowa's goal is
"further develop a broad movement committed to progressive reform in
state and local politics," it is legally a for-profit partnership
between Fallon and his campaign manager and girlfriend Lynn Heuss. As
a result, IM for Iowa can take an unlimited amount of contributions
and does not have to reveal its contributors or how it spends its
money. However, it is highly questionable how a building a grassroots
movement in Iowa for causes like advocating Clean Elections can be a
moneymaking, for-profit entity. IM for Iowa does not sell any product
or produce anything of tangible commercial value.
