On Tuesday, Zach Nunn for Congress released the below statement over new reporting by the New York Times that finds Rep. Cindy Axne has 13 stocks with conflicts of interest after trading in companies influenced by her congressional committee:

“We aren’t shocked to hear that Cindy Axne has used her congressional powers to get rich. While she shadily makes a buck, we’re struggling under Biden-Axne’s massive spending bills which raised Iowans’ taxes and cost families an extra $5,000 in inflation. Axne is one of the most corrupt politicians in D.C. and one of the most liberal. She has been caught illegally insider stock trading and taking dark money from PACs. She lied to Iowans with verified false campaign attack ads. She lied about her voting record, claiming she’s bipartisan but in reality voting with Biden even more than progressives like AOC. Axne always says one thing but does another. Here in Iowa, we call that untrustworthy. Iowans deserve better.”  -Lydia Hall, Communications Director
