New Report Reveals Daniel Cameron “Directly Solicited Donations” from Organization His Office is Investigating

A new bombshell report from the Associated Press reveals that “Daniel Cameron directly solicited donations for his gubernatorial campaign from executives with a Kentucky drug treatment organization that his office began investigating last year, according to an attorney for the organization.”

As the report notes, “several Edgewater executives later donated thousands of dollars to Cameron’s campaign during the spring primary campaign.”

An initial report by The Daily Beast revealed that Cameron accepted nearly $7,000 from various executives of Edgewater, and only recused himself from the investigation after “an open records request threatened to reveal the existence of that investigation,” and threatened to expose Cameron.

At the time, Cameron’s office claimed he was not aware of the contributions, but the Associated Press report detailing how Cameron was personally soliciting donations from Edgewater executives raises major red flags. The report from The Daily Beast further explained that Cameron only returned the money “after winning the primary election that the donations helped fund.”

“This deeply alarming report makes it clear Daniel Cameron had a serious conflict of interest by personally soliciting and accepting donations from an organization that his office was investigating – and then he tried to lie to cover it up,” said DGA States Press Secretary Emma O’Brien. “Daniel Cameron’s messy record of failing Kentuckians is finally being exposed – and even Mitch McConnell’s babysitter won’t be able to clean it up.”
