#PAGov: Secret Roy Moore Financier Cuts Scott Wagner a $50,000 Check

Pennsylvania Gubernatorial candidate, and our favorite trash man, Scott Wagner received $50,000 from secret Roy Moore super PAC financier Richard Uihlein.  Campaign finance reports for 2017 shows that Uihlein cut Wagner the check in October 2017.

 

In November, the Daily Beast uncovered the fact that Uihlein was financing a super PAC, Proven Conservatives, that supported Roy Moore.

The chief financier of a leading pro-Roy Moore super PAC is a deep-pocketed Republican businessman who dropped eight figures on 2016 races alone and is looking to continue propping up the party’s most conservative candidates.

Illinois businessman Richard Uihlein provided $100,000 to the group, Proven Conservatives PAC, since September, according to a new filing with the Federal Election Commission, making him by far the group’s top donor. That money, which hadn’t been previously disclosed, has financed a host of ads boosting Moore’s candidacy in the face of widespread sexual assault and harassment allegations. The group has also run ads attacking Moore’s primary opponent, Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), and his Democratic general election rival Doug Jones.

Uihlein has also given money to union busting legislators such as Bruce Rauner and Scott Walker.
