New York, New York- U.S. Senate candidate Chele Farley (R, C, Reform) today blasted Kirsten Gillibrand for her double-talk on campaign finance with the Glens Falls Post-Star editorial board after Senator Gillibrand, for the second time, pledged to reform her fundraising practices, this time swearing off donations from political action committees (PACs).
“The first time Kirsten Gillibrand swore off lobbyist donations, she couldn’t even keep her pledge for 24 hours,” said Farley.
Farley continued, “Now after spending a decade shaking down Wall Street and lobbyists for almost $5 million of PAC money and positioning herself to run for President, she is making another bogus pledge.”
In a 2006 interview with the Albany Times Union, Gillibrand pledged not to take donations from lobbyists. In less than 24 hours, she reversed her decision.
Recently, Gillibrand pledged to reform herself yet again, completing the rare FLIP, FLOP, FLIP!
