Democratic Michigan Rep. Elissa Slotkin promoted federal grants for her landlord’s company, despite previous denials from her campaign, according to a letter to a Department of Energy subagency obtained by the Daily Caller.
Slotkin, a second-term representative, moved from the 8th to the 7th District after the Michigan legislature redrew its congressional boundaries. The congresswoman changed her voter registration address in May 2022 to a condominium in Lansing, according to voter registration records reviewed by the Daily Caller. The condo is owned by donor Jerry Hollister, Chief Operating Officer and Director of Government Relations at Niowave Inc., a medical company that employs nuclear technology.
Slotkin’s campaign denied any wrongdoing to Fox Digital, which first reported that she was living in Hollister’s home. Hollister has donated $2900 to Slotkin since 2018 through her campaign committee and ActBlue. The campaign claimed that Slotkin’s office had not “advocated for” or been “involved in” any federal contracts or funds accessed by Niowave, according to the outlet.
