An Act To Restrict Maine Clean Election Act Candidates from Seeking or Accepting Employment with Vendors
Sec. 1. 21-A MRSA §1125, sub-§6-G is enacted to read:
For purposes of this subsection, "business entity" has the same meaning as in subsection 6-C, paragraph B.
This bill prohibits a Maine Clean Election Act candidate from soliciting or accepting employment from an individual, business or nonprofit entity to whom the candidate paid $10,000 or more in connection with the candidate's campaign for office. This prohibition begins on the date that the candidate is certified as a Maine Clean Election Act candidate and ends 3 years after the date of the general election for that office.
