Margaret Anderson Kelliher Calls For Campaign Disclosure Reform

By Craig Stellmacher
On the day before candidates must disclose their financial contributions, DFL endorsed candidate for Minnesota Governor Margaret Anderson Kelliher stood in her typical middle class driveway in Minneapolis, and called for fuller disclosure.

She pointed to a study by the center for public integrity, that ranked Minnesota 40th for disclosure finance laws.

She made obvious references to the two elephants in the room but didn’t call them by name : her opponents in the DFL primary Matt Entenza and Mark Dayton, who have been able to marshal a lot of their own money for their campaigns.

Kelliher, contributed $250 to her own campaign last and this year. 3,523 individuals paid an average of $218.03, towards her $1.23 million total raised so far. She also called for complete spousal disclosure too, an obvious reference to Entenza’s wife former UnitedHealth group executive Louis Quam.
