FEC Complaint Filed Against Senator Lamar Alexander; Possible Investigation Of “Museumgate” Scandal Pending
Nashville, TN – A complaint and request for investigation by the Federal Elections Commission has been filed against Senator Lamar Alexander’s re-election campaign for colluding with the Tennessee State Museum to promote the Senator’s candidacy for re-election. Independent US Senate candidate Danny Page, who is challenging Senator Alexander, filed the complaint with the FEC today.
“For Lamar Alexander to use taxpayer money to promote his own campaign is a classic example of the self serving attitude that he has portrayed throughout his two terms in the US Senate,” said Mr. Page. “Behavior such as this is exactly the reason why Senator Alexander should not serve another term and why Tennesseans should elect one of their own that will work to build a legacy for the state instead of for himself.”
In the second half of 2013 Senator Alexander was revealed by various media outlets to have secured an earmark for the State of Tennessee Museum which planned a traveling statewide exhibit featuring Mr. Alexander. This exhibit was scheduled to coincide with Senator Alexander’s re-election campaign.
Documents obtained by the media show clear collusion between Senator Alexander’s re-election campaign and the state museum. The FEC procedure followed for complaints is located on their website:
