The Nebraska Democratic Party has filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission against Governor Dave Heineman and Attorney General Jon Bruning. A news release says they accepted $2500 dollars each from foreign nationals, The TransCanada Keystone Pipeline. Nebraska Republican Committee chair Mark Fahleson confirmed that the donations we’re received.
“It doesn’t take anyone merely a stamp to file a silly complaint like this, the reality is once it was brought to the Governors and Attorney Generals attention, they immediately returned the check.”
Fahleson called the complaint “silly”. TransCanada wants to place a gas pipeline in Nebraska that some fear could harm the Ogallala Aquifer.
