Bad Headlines For Ami Bera’s Campaign Kickoff Event

California Democrat Ami Bera chose a horrible time to announce his re-election campaign kickoff–the same week that his campaign finance scandal emerged. As a result, his campaign launch event received less than desirable headlines:

KCRA: “Bera kicks off re-election campaign amid scandal involving father”

FOX40: “Ami Bera Focusing on Campaign Following His Father’s Scandal”

While Bera may try to pivot to focusing on his campaign, he still faces a lot of unanswered questions from voters about how he could not have known about his own father’s activities in the illegal campaign finance scheme that directly benefitted his campaign.
