Wisconsin Assembly candidate is accepting Bitcoin donations again
A candidate for Wisconsin State Assembly is challenging a state regulator by accepting donations in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC). Anderson said that his campaign is accepting crypto donations despite regulatory uncertainty from the Wisconsin Ethics Commission.
Back in 2018, Anderson accepted Bitcoin donations in his campaign for Governor of Wisconsin despite the WEC finding them a “serious challenge” to compliance with state law. Anderson believes that crypto is a legitimate way to make campaign donations because “cryptocurrency is money.”
