“I will not allow the mainstream media to filter my message. I will communicate directly to the people through social media – That’s how you can follow my campaign.”
– DAN FOREST
Fake News Reports:
The media tries to closely tie Dan Forest with a frequent North Carolina campaign donor named Greg Lindberg, who later was indicted on federal charges dealing with the N.C. Department of Insurance.
Over several years, Lindberg donated money to many different groups — including Democrats, Republicans, the Legislative Black Caucus Foundation and historically black colleges and universities. As part of that giving, he donated to groups that historically have supported Dan Forest.
A few key points:
- The only contribution Lindberg made to the Forest campaign was an “in-kind” donation of food and beverage at a fundraising event.
- The Office of the Lieutenant Governor has no jurisdiction over the N.C. Department of Insurance nor oversees any insurance-related regulatory activities.
Don’t take our word for it:
Dan Forest was never questioned, never subpoenaed, and never listed on the federal forfeiture list as part of the N.C. Department of Insurance / Greg Lindberg investigation. The left-wing media desperately wants and needs Dan Forest to be part of this investigation, but he is not.
The primary outlet driving this false narrative is Capitol Broadcasting and their Raleigh TV station, WRAL.
We think the viewing public should be aware that James Goodmon, CEO of Capitol Broadcasting, has personally contributed over $20,000 to the campaigns of Roy Cooper, Dan’s opponent in the Governor’s race, including a $5,400 contribution shortly after Dan Forest announced his intentions to run against Governor Cooper. In Dan’s campaigns for Lt. Governor, James Goodman gave over $10,000 to Dan’s opponent.
