Senator Claire Celsi garnered plenty of attention on Friday on The Iowa Standard when it was pointed out she warned people about buying Wells Enterprises products. You can read about that here.

When Sen. Jake Chapman (R-Adel) posted a reply to Celsi’s initial tweet, saying he supports Iowa-based business, especially Blue Bunny and he’d be buying extra tonight,

Celsi responded:

“I really like their ice cream and will go back to buying it when they stop supporting white supremacist Steve King.”

Well, a quick search of the Federal Election Commission’s financial data shows the last donation to Congressman Steve King from the family came on March 31, 2016. That was three election cycles ago.
