Pelosi PAC Blasted for Meddling in Primary

A House Speaker Nancy Pelosi-affiliated political action committee is receiving sharp criticism for sinking almost $1 million into a campaign ad for a first-time candidate in the Democratic House primary for Oregon’s 6th District seat.

According to a report from Axios, Carrick Flynn has never held political office and his campaign has been bankrolled by a cryptocurrency billionaire who’s already pumped roughly $6 million into his efforts.

Some Democrats say the House Majority PAC — which is aligned with Pelosi — is favoring one candidate, spending all this money against other Democrats in the race. The PAC is facing accusations of primary meddling.

I haven’t endorsed in this race, but it’s flat-out wrong for House Majority PAC to be weighing in when we have multiple strong candidates vying for the nomination,” Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) wrote on Twitter.

Protect Our Future PAC, a new group launched this cycle by billionaire Sam Bankman-Fried, founder of the crypto firm FTX, has spent roughly $6 million to Flynn’s campaign.

Campaign manager Robin Logsdon suggested there may have been a backdoor deal between Bankman-Fried and the House Majority PAC.

“Do I know exactly what was exchanged by his people and [House Majority PAC’s] people?” Logsdon said. “No, but I can speculate, as can everyone, that promises have been made.”

    One thinks Pelosi really cares? Pelosi is just as deceitful and dishonest as Lying Corrupt Quid Pro KING Joe. The only think Pelosi and the liberal commie Democrats care about is money, power, and their own Democracy and a one party rule forever and in order to achieve their one party rule, the need to take all the guns. A one Party Rule=Communism. Other than that they could care less about their constituents Democracy.
