Major Greitens donor is bankrolling Roy Moore PAC
Moore has been under fire after a number of women stepped forward to claim he pursued teenage girls when he was in his 30s and serving as an assistant district attorney and district attorney. One woman accused Moore of sexual misconduct with her when she was only 14.
Dick Uihlein, Lake Front, Illinois, the CEO of Uline, gave $100,000 to the Proven Conservative PAC, which is backing Moore, according to Federal Election Commission documents. The contribution was made in two $50,000 chunks and makes Uihlein Moore's biggest financial supporter by a wide margin.
Even so, the money Uihlein has given to Proven Conservative PAC pales in comparison the amount he poured into the Greitens campaign in 2015 and 2016, according to Missouri Ethics Commission records.
Uilhlein contributed $35,000 to Greitens in 2015, with a $25,000 donation on October 30 and $10,000 on November 10.
His 2016 contributions include $10,000 March 15, $25,00 March 28, $40,000 July 27 and a whopping $250,000 on October 20.
Uihlein also contributed $10,000 to the successful campaign of Attorney General Josh Hawley.
