Aaron Bean Calls for State & Federal Investigation into CD 4 Opponent for Fraudulent Emails Scamming Seniors

Fernandina Beach, Fla. – On the heels of Politico yesterday reporting that Republican candidate Erick Aguilar, who is running for Florida Congressional District 4, has been duping seniors with President Trump- and Governor DeSantis-themed emails to solicit contributions for his campaign for Congress, Aaron Bean is calling for a state and federal investigation into his opponent’s deceitful campaign activities.

The article reported: “In his pursuit of Florida’s 4th Congressional District, Aguilar has used WinRed, a popular platform Republicans employ to process campaign contributions, to send a flurry of fundraising emails. But the solicitations did not mention Aguilar’s campaign or his leading competitor in the Aug. 23 primary…Instead, the messages were written in a way that suggested donations would actually go toward more prominent GOP politicians, including the former president, the governor or Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan.”

The article also stated that “POLITICO contacted more than a dozen out-of-state donors listed as giving multiple contributions to Aguilar’s campaign, and a few who responded said they didn’t know who he was or why their money ended up in his campaign coffers.”

“We were saddened and angered to read that our opponent, Erick Aguilar, has been scamming seniors and others in Florida and all across the country to get contributions to his campaign,” said Bean, who is running against Aguilar to represent Congressional District 4. “Impersonating Governor DeSantis and President Trump in fundraising emails is not only shameful and disgusting, but it is also fraud and should be investigated at the state and federal level.”
