Trump Boosts Company of Super PAC Donor Linda Bean with a Tweet

January 12, 2017 | Laura Friedenbach

Washington, D.C. — Today, money-in-politics watchdog Every Voice said Donald Trump has given up all pretense on his goal to drain the swamp in Washington, telling millions of his twitter followers that they should support L.L. Bean, the company of a super PAC donor

“Donald Trump is going to need some of those famous L.L. Bean Duck boots to wade through the swamp he keeps filling higher and higher,” said Adam Smith, communication director at Every Voice. “It wasn’t enough to open his administration to scandal and foreign bribery by failing to divest from his companies, or to give big donors like Betsy DeVos cabinet positions, or to take million-dollar contributions for his inauguration—he’s now personally encouraging his supporters to boost the companies of his super PAC donors. The swamp he promised to drain is about to spill over.”
