Angie Craig took to the airwaves today to highlight her company’s record on veterans, but she omitted a fairly important detail. In 2012, Craig’s company, St. Jude Medical, was forced to pay $3.65 million as part of a settlement with the Department of Justice for overcharging our nation’s veterans for their medical devices.

The settlement resolved a Justice Department case under the False Claims Act into Craig’s company inflating the cost of replacement pacemakers and defibrillators purchased by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.

NRCC Comment: “It is an astonishing display of hypocrisy for Angie Craig to run a campaign ad on her company’s record on veterans, when that same company was forced to pay a multi-million dollar settlement for overcharging our nation’s veterans for medical devices. Instead of misleading voters about her company’s record on veterans, Angie Craig should apologize to Minnesota’s veterans community for her company’s history of ripping them off by overcharging them for their medical treatment.” – NRCC Spokesman Bob Salera
