NV Dems Reiterate Call for Congressman Heck to Return Campaign Donations from Alleged Sex Offender

Las Vegas, NV – Today, the Nevada State Democratic Party repeated calls for Congressman Heck to return donations 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.

There is no excuse for Congressman Heck’s failure to return funds from an individual accused of such heinous crimes as Michael Goguen,” said Sarah Zukowski, spokesperson for the Nevada State Democratic Party. “No elected official in Nevada, or the country, should allow their campaign to be supported by an individual accused of such deplorable actions as Mr. Goguen. Congressman Heck should immediately denounce Mr. Goguen and return any donations made to his campaign.
