STATE GOP: SCHNEE’S TENURE AS U.S.
Posted: Oct. 15, 2002
WILMINGTON, DEL. --- The Delaware
Republican Party launched another ad today regarding Carl Schnee,
Democratic candidate for Attorney General, and his dismal record as
After a 38 year career as a defense
attorney for murderers, rapists, drug dealers and out of state
insurance companies, Mr. Schnee was appointed to the office of U.S.
Attorney – a position he held for approximately 20 months.
The ad campaign reveals that Carl
Schnee’s performance as U.S. Attorney was disappointing at best.
“During Carl Schnee’s tenure as U.S.
Attorney for Delaware, we saw prosecutions drop across the board,”
said Eric Sutton, Executive Director of the Delaware Republican
Party. “Gun crime prosecutions dropped almost 50%, drug felony
prosecutions went down by nearly two-thirds and white-collar crime
prosecutions went down 8%.”
Since Carl Schnee has left the
office, prosecutions have increased dramatically.
“His dismal performance clearly
shows his inexperience in prosecution was a factor,” commented
Sutton. “It is no wonder why Carl Schnee’s tenure as U.S. Attorney
was a failure, most of his career was spent defending criminals.”
“Quite honestly, our seniors and
working families can’t risk having someone like Carl Schnee in
charge of prosecuting criminals. Our children can’t risk having
more drug dealers on the streets because Carl Schnee doesn’t have
the experience to put them behind bars,” said Sutton. Bottom line,
Delaware can’t risk having an Attorney General with such a poor
track record as Carl Schnee.”
