Josh Stein’s Corrupt and Cozy Financial Relationship With Cal Cunningham

Press Release:

    RALEIGH, NC     What do Democrats Josh Stein and Cal Cunningham have in common? In addition to sharing radical liberal ideas and policies, Stein and Cunningham share shady financial ties.

    From 2011 to 2016, when Josh Stein was a member of the North Carolina State Senate, he served on the Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations, which oversaw all active contracts with a value over $25,000. One of the contracts, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, that Stein's commission oversaw was with WasteZero, the company where Cal Cunningham served as Vice President and General Counsel. In exchange for favorable treatment by Stein, Cunningham and other WasteZero executives funneled $4,250 back to Josh Stein's campaign coffers.

    The alleged quid pro quo that Stein and Cunningham arranged didn't just benefit Stein's campaign, it benefited Stein personally! Stein has been an investor in WasteZero for years, including during the time he directly oversaw their contract with the State of North Carolina.

    "Perhaps Josh Stein failed to solve North Carolina's rape kit backlog because he was too busy cashing in on his position," said NCGOP Press Secretary Tim Wigginton. "Josh Stein has failed survivors of sexual assault and he's failed the people of North Carolina through corrupt dealings and financial arrangements. Is it any surprise that Josh Stein has been silent on Cunningham's extramarital affairs when Cunningham and Stein are so closely tied financially?"
