NV Dems Call on Congressman Heck to Return Campaign Funds Donated by Alleged Sexual Abuser of Human Trafficking Victim

Las Vegas, NV – Today, the Nevada State Democratic Party called on Congressman Heck to return contributions to his campaign from Silicon Valley investor Michael Goguen, who is currently being sued by a former human trafficking victim for allegations that Goguen sexually abused her for 13 years.

Congressman Heck should immediately return the donations he received from Mr. Goguen,” said Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange. “The accusations against Mr. Goguen are reprehensible and it is unacceptable for any official running to represent the great state of Nevada to accept money from an individual that may be involved in such deplorable crimes. Congressman Heck should immediately denounce Mr. Goguen and sever any ties that he may have to him.”
