What is Joni Ernst hiding?


Progress Iowa executive director Matt Sinovic issued the following statement in response to the breaking news that a political action committee created by Senator Joni Ernst’s political aides have worked closely with her to raise funds in support of her reelection, potentially in violation of the law:

“After reading today’s news, Iowans should be gravely concerned with how we are being represented in the Senate by Joni Ernst. What is she hiding from us, and who does she truly represent? It’s not Iowa families, who need her to stand up to Mitch McConnell and the Washington establishment. Ernst is backed by millions of dollars in special interest money, and now we learn that her campaign she and her team have potentially violated the law.”

“Iowans deserve to know if their Senator and her staff have broken the law. If Joni Ernst truly represents Iowans, she will make every communication between her and the staff responsible for this shady “Iowa Values” organization public. If Ernst does not do so immediately, that will prove she has abandoned her responsibility in representing our state. And we will explore every option under the law to make sure Iowans discover the truth.”
