Oct 19, 2020

LAGUNA BEACH, CA —According to financial reports made available last week, Orange County Chairwoman Michelle Steel poured another $500,000 of her own money into her campaign for Congress, bringing her total personal contributions to her campaign up to $1,729,107.20. As an elected official for Orange County from 2007-2018, Steel made $1,705,971.41 from her taxpayer-funded salaries.

Reacting to the news, Harley for Congress Campaign Manager Alyssa Napuri released the following statement:

“Orange County’s most corrupt politician, Michelle Steel, is peddling lies about Congressman Harley Rouda’s taxes while funneling her taxpayer-funded salary into a political campaign. Michelle Steel’s hypocrisy is staggering, but all too predictable. Voters see through her corruption and the curious coincidence of contributing $1,729,107.20 to her campaign after collecting $1,705,971.41 from taxpayers.

Orange County needs a leader, like Congressman Harley Rouda, who has fought tirelessly to root out waste, fraud, and the abuse of our tax dollars. Washington doesn’t need another corrupt politician, like Michelle Steel.”
