“Sen. Joe Donnelly (D) is selling his stock in a family business amid criticism that he profits from Mexican labor, something he frequently rails against. An Associated Press story published Thursday revealed that an arts and crafts business Donnelly’s family has owned for generations capitalizes on low-paid foreign labor. … In a statement released Friday, Donnelly said he’s selling the stock to keep ‘some folks in Washington’ from causing a distraction.” Donnelly said he hasn’t had an “active role” in the company for 20 years.
