The four year old family feud between Andy Unanue and his cousins over control of Goya Foods continues to rattle the Senate candidate’s fledgling campaign.
Today, the Bergen Record’s Herb Jackson pulls some more bad news for Unanue out of the 2004 court battle’s testimony transcripts, writing that Goya Foods paid $12,000 for his political consultants in 2003 and 2004, when he was mulling a Congressional run. That’s a violation of campaign finance laws, which bar corporate funding, even for testing phases of campaigns.
Unanue responded that it was common for Goya to pay some of his personal expenses, which he would then reimburse. But he could not remember if he reimbursed the company for the political consultant’s fees.
