“After pledging not to take corporate PAC money during his 2017 campaign for Congress,” Rep. Greg Gianforte (R) “accepted nearly $20,000 in corporate PAC donations during the fourth quarter of 2017.” Gianforte: “I have been taking PAC money.”

“Asked if he would make a similar pledge not to accept that money later in his 2018 campaign, Gianforte—who had just boarded an elevator off the House floor—looked down and shook his head, letting the elevator doors close.” (Roll Call)
