In one of Sara Gideon’s TV ads, which the Washington Post declared was “mostly false,” she criticized Sen. Collins’ work on the PPP program, falsely claiming that it only helped one in 10 small businesses here in Maine. Ironically, one of the businesses that it did help was Ms. Gideon’s husband’s law firm, which accepted more than $1 million to keep the firm afloat. And even as she was demanding more transparency regarding who got the PPP money, she never disclosed that her husband’s firm received this money.
This story was reported by the Associated Press and Bangor Daily News, among others, so it was common knowledge. Susan Collins has been serving us well for over 20 years. We know we can count on her and trust her to tell us the truth.
