AP REPORT: BLUM’S UNDISCLOSED BUSINESS PUT SAFETY OF IOWANS AT RISK

Dubuque, IA – Today, the Associated Press published a stunning report on Rep. Rod Blum’s undisclosed business dealings. In response to the story, Abby Finkenauer released the following statement:

“The most basic role of government is to protect people. Yet, Rod Blum was the CEO of a company whose purpose was to hide food and drug safety violations from consumers, putting Americans’ and Iowans’ health and safety at risk. And he did this while in Congress and serving on a powerful congressional committee whose job it is to oversee all federal agencies. This is the swamp at its worst and it’s why we need change now more than ever.”
