Representative Jim Gerlach doesn’t want you to know about this and that is why he is throwing mud at Bob Roggio. Gerlach doesn’t have anything to offer except more of the White House shenanigans.
The Keystone Progressive has this to report.
The House Committee on Oversight has documented that senior Bush political aides used federal funds to support the re-election campaign of Gerlach and Murphy by sending federal officials to their Congressional Districts for campaign events disguised as official business. White House communication records show that the trips were specifically intended to help Gerlach and Murphy win re-election – the very definition of political activity.
The report shows that Rep. Gerlach accepted taxpayer-financed help for his 2006 campaign on four separate occasions. The four events were:
1) 3/10/06 – Visit by Commerce Secretary Gutierrez (Exton, PA)
2) 5/15/06 – Visit by Commerce Secretary Gutierrez (Malvern, PA)
3) 9/18/06 – Visit by EPA Administrator Johnson (Pottstown, PA)
4) 10/2/06 – Visit by HUD Secretary Jackson (Reading, PA)
Haven’t we had enough of all these White House scandals and dishonesty?
We don’t need more Bush politics after Bush leaves office and that is why it is time to “Fire Gerlach” and vote for Bob Roggio in the PA 6th Congressional District.
