Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) had a bad day of headlines after he made $50,000 last year from a company that outsources labor to Mexico.
Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN), who has been vocal in his opposition to free trade and the outsourcing of jobs, was exposed for profiting from outsourced labor this week, and that led to an avalanche of bad headlines in his home state.
ABC Indianapolis, above, broadcast Donnelly’s hypocrisy to Indiana’s largest city. “A company run by the family Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly uses a program that relies on Mexican labor to produce its products,” the broadcast told its viewers.

Donnelly is running for re-election in 2018 in a state that Donald Trump won by 22 points. Even before this story, the Democratic senator already had an uphill battle to another term.
