Janet Mills has faced criticism for misleading Maine voters about her relationship with disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who recently resigned amid allegations that he physically abused multiple women. Mills tried to downplay her relationship with Schneiderman, who was the “special guest” raising thousands of dollars in cash for her campaign at a recent Manhattan fundraiser.
Now, Mills is fundraising off of her Schneiderman controversy. A new fundraising email sent by her campaign says that, “the Maine GOP and their allies in right-wing talk radio swung into gear, throwing everything but the kitchen sink at Janet to see if they could make something stick.”
Mills is referencing an explosive report detailing how she lied to the press about her ties to Schneiderman.
That Janet Mills would fundraise off of this controversy, rather than divest herself of the tainted campaign cash and apologize for campaigning with a sexual predator, is disgraceful. It raises serious questions about her judgement.
