Common Cause criticism
In 2008, Common Cause Nebraska (CCN) asserted that Conrad was acting unethically in doing paid work for Nebraskans United.
CCN spokesperson Jack Gould said that senators should not do paid work on issues they may later be asked to vote on. Conrad called his criticism "ludicrous".
