- What Does Daniel Mongiardo Have to Hide? [Page One]
- Hey, Lt. Dan, Which Is It? Public? Private? [Page One]
And here’s the video footage:
From a Conway Campaign press release:
“We have all witnessed during the past month that Dan Mongiardo cannot be trusted. He will say or do anything to get elected – including bad-mouthing our Governor. What is Mongiardo hiding? What is so secret? Why would he use state resources to invite people to attend a public event and then slam the door when someone shows up to try and find out where he stands on the issues? What is troubling is that Mongiardo had his own CAMPAIGN staff involved in these supposedly officially state-sanctioned events. If they were official state business, as the media advisory indicates, why were they closed meetings and why was Mongiardo’s own CAMPAIGN staff denying access to the meetings?,” said Conway spokesperson Mark Riddle. “Is Mongiardo telling different groups different things to curry support? Is he refusing to let people attend public events to which the media is invited? Is he missuing state resources? I think Dan has a lot of explaining to do!”
“Was the Lt. Governor discussing health care reform and legislation in his official capacity at public events or were these ‘private’ campaign events that he was attending and promoting on the taxpayers’ dime? Perhaps he is travelling across Kentucky trying to explain why he was kicked off the e-health task force. I know this is Halloween Eve, but this entire situation smells like a trick and is scary for taxpayers,” added Mark Riddle.
My favorite part of this whole mess? State dollars paying for KSP protection at a private campaign event. Nice.
UPDATE @ 7:22: Like clockwork, the mainstream media releases a story about the Mongiardo events that no press allegedly attended. Imagine that.
Who wants to file the Ethics complaint, folks?
