The leading Republican challenger to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass) told Boston radio talk show host Howie Carr Tuesday that Warren took campaign contributions from Sen. Robert Menendez (D.-N.J.), who is now on trial, and she needs to either return the money or donate the money to charity.

“He’s got 18 counts of bribery and fraud,” said state Rep. Geoff Diehl (R.-Whitman), about one of the senior Democratic senators and a former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “He created this PAC called “The New Millenium Political Action Committee,” and he has distributed over $275,000 to candidates, including Elizabeth Warren.”

Diehl, who lead the 2014 fight to reduce the state’s gasoline tax, said Warren should do the right thing.

“Somebody like Elizabeth Warren, who clearly has the focus of running for president in 2020 should not be taking money from someone like Senator Menendez, who has clearly abused the system,” he said.Set Vidio id“Senator Warren has complained about big money in politics. She should first clean up her own campaign account by donating the tainted funds she received from Senator Menendez’s PAC,” said Diehl.
