Andy Kim Silent as Dark Money Flows to NJ-03

March 12, 2021

Trenton: Reports indicate that House Majority Forward will be launching an “ad blitz” in NJ-3 in support of Rep. Andy Kim. In 2019 House Majority Forward was launched as an affiliate of House Majority PAC, a Super PAC focused on electing Democrats to the House of Representatives.

House Majority PAC is Nancy Pelosi’s Super PAC that accepts unlimited contributions.

House Majority Forward is a dark money group and does not disclose its donors.

Rep. Andy Kim is a vocal opponent of dark money in politics, but appears to be okay with House Majority Forward, and others, funnelling dark money into the 3rd district on his behalf.

Chairman Michael Lavery issued the following statement:

“Andy Kim says he opposes dark money in politics, then turns around and accepts these dark money groups spending heavily in the Third District. Andy Kim is saying one thing, doing another, and the people of Burlington and Ocean County deserve better. Kim needs to publicly denounce the spending of this dark money group in his district, or just simply say he’s no longer opposed to dark money in politics. He can’t have it both ways.”
