Second Shaffer Ad Goes up

Public Campaign Action Fund's Campaign Money Watch came out with a new ad highlighting Colorado Senate candidate Bob Schaffer's connections to Big Oil. Both Colorado Independent and PolitickerCO have reported on it.

 

Here's David Donnelly on the ad:

A bit of a stretch

Last week, Bob Schaffer, candidate for Senate in Colorado, claimed he shut down a sweatshop in the Mariana Islands. The problem, of course, is he doesn't have much evidence to back up this claim.

 

The Denver Post analyzed this claim. This Spring, Schaffer said the sweatshops "imported labor" should be a model for the U.S. An attorney representing who negotiated settlements on behalf of garment workers, said it was bankruptcy, not government intervention, that led to the shut downs.

Press on Schaffer Ad

The ad Public Campaign Action Fund's Campaign Money Watch project released yesterday on Colorado Senate candidate Bob Schaffer's connections to Jack Abramoff and campaign contributions from factory owners in the Northern Mariana Islands got some attention from Colorado press, including the Rocky Mountain News and the Denver Post.

Three Wrongs

Public Campaign Action Fund's Campaign Money Watch project is rolling out a new ad today to hold Colorado Senate candidate Bob Schaffer (R) accountable for a $13,000 junket he took (courtesy of Jack Abramoff) while in Congress to the Northern Mariana Islands where factories are notorious for abusing their largely female workforce. Schaffer must have been too busy parasailing on Abramoff's dime to note these abuses. He later received thousands in campaign contributions from the factory owners.

Repent

It's totally David Donnelly day in the papers -- this op-ed for the Denver Post, authored by David in his capacity as Director of Public Campaign Action Fund's Campaign Money Watch project, goes in to the relationship with convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff that Colorado Senate candidate, and former U.S. Representative Bob Schaffer (R) would rather keep quiet. And its no wonder, dealings with Abramoff have sunk more than a few political careers.
