SCHNEE SHOULD COME CLEAN
WILMINGTON, DEL. --- The
Republican Party of Delaware called on Democratic candidate Carl
Schnee to tell the public the truth about his financial holdings.
According to reports on
financial holdings published by the Center for Public Integrity,
Schnee holds stock in WorldCom Inc as well as several other
companies and corporations.
However, in radio ads,
Schnee consistently criticizes the Republican Attorneys General
Association for accepting money from WorldCom and other
corporations. He even accuses Attorney General Jane Brady of being
“bought” by these companies.
“This is the height of
hypocrisy,” said GOP Executive Director Eric Sutton. “Schnee’s
implying that contributions to an organization by a major company
would cloud Jane Brady’s judgment – all the while he has financial
holdings in that same company. Doesn’t he realize the people see
right through his act?”
Mr. Sutton pointed out that
so far Carl Schnee has not been honest about Jane Brady’s record of
prosecuting criminals, nor has he been honest about his own record
of defending criminals, so the fact that Carl Schnee has not been
honest about this conflict of interest doesn’t surprise him.
“Carl Schnee needs to come
clean to the voters of Delaware.”
