Chet Culver Needs to Address Criminal Investigation

Culver 1Iowans deserve to know if their governor or his staff are being questioned in a criminal investigation

Des Moines, Iowa – Today, the Des Moines Register reported that a criminal investigation has commenced by the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation involving campaign contributions to Governor Chet Culver’s campaign by individuals associated with the proposed Fort Dodge casino.

The Register states the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation is looking into ‘improper contributions’ made by three people aligned with Fort Dodge casino that received $25,000 from Peninsula Gaming for ‘consulting’ work, and just happened to contribute $25,000 to the Chet Culver campaign committee.

When asked by reporters if Gov. Culver, Lt. Gov. Judge or any administration or campaign officials have been questioned in this investigation, the Governor’s office declined to comment.

The people of Iowa have a right to know if Gov. Culver, Lt. Gov. Judge, or their staff has been questioned in the ongoing criminal investigation.

IPP spokesperson Amanda Weiland stated, “Governor Culver must clearly tell the people of Iowa his role in this scandal, and answer questions about his role in the ongoing criminal investigation. If law enforcement officials are questioning the Governor, Lt. Governor or their staff, the people of Iowa deserve to know.”
