Sacramento Bee: The Truth Will Hurt Ami Bera

This morning, California Democrat Ami Bera’s hometown paper strongly criticized his involvement in his father’s crime of laundering $268,000 in campaign contributions.

The Sacramento Bee editorial board said Bera “could have decided against running” for re-election after being interviewed by the FBI last October. The Bee also wrote, “This case calls into doubt the legitimacy of Bera’s donor base. His perceived fundraising prowess scared off other Democrats from mounting primary campaigns against him.”

Bera still has a lot to answer for and he should immediately accept responsibility for his father’s unlawful actions. As the Sacramento Bee said, “Now that the truth is coming out, it surely will hurt Bera in 2016.”
