Daines has paid the fundraising aide, Mike Gula, nearly $500,000 since 2018. Daines has refused to answer questions about the nature of his affiliation with Gula, or what “relationships” Gula leveraged to get these supplies. The Wall Street Journal reports Daines was “paying Gula to set up several fundraising events” including two DC fundraisers and retreats in Napa, California and Helena scheduled for this summer.
“Daines’ former campaign aide took millions in taxpayer dollars, and then failed to deliver a single piece of PPE,” said MDP Executive Director Sandi Luckey. “Senator Daines paid Gula nearly $50,000 as he was setting up his business, and continues to dodge questions about whether he was one of the ‘relationships’ Gula leveraged to acquire scarce PPE to sell for profit. Daines owes Montanans answers about his level of involvement in Gula’s pandemic profiteering scheme.”
