Lincoln, Nebraska (AP) — Governor Pete Ricketts of Nebraska was accused of lying to an FBI agent investigating the contribution of an illegal campaign from a foreigner, Republican Jeff Fortenberry last week. I support Congressman Tenberry.
Ricketts defended the ninth-term Republican lawmaker as a “honest man” on Monday. He says he doesn’t think Fortenbury deliberately violates federal law and prays for him and his family.
Fortenbury denied the charges in federal court last week and pleaded not guilty. His lawyer claimed that Fortenbury was misunderstood and was unaware at the time that the $ 30,000 donation invested in his campaign came from a Nigerian billionaire.
