ND Lawmakers Raising Concerns About Burgum Donations

(Bismarck, ND) — Several North Dakota lawmakers are raising concerns about Governor Doug Burgum’s contributions to a political action committee. Burgum has donated nearly a million dollars to conservative multi-candidate committee Dakota Leadership PAC this month. Representatives Rick Becker, Sebastian Ertelt, Jeffrey Magrum, and Jeff Hoverson spoke out yesterday, saying Burgum’s donations are inappropriate. Becker compared the donations to a mob boss ordering mobsters to break the legs of his opponents. A bill introduced last legislative session would have made it illegal for the governor to endorse or make contributions to legislative candidates. The bill didn’t pass, and the Secretary of State’s office advised lawmakers that restricting the contributions would be a violation of his free speech.
