RNC Statement Calling on the Obama Administration to Come Clean on Political Payoffs to Campaign Bundler Steve Westly
WASHINGTON - Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement calling on the Obama administration to come clean on their political payoffs to campaign bundler Steve Westly:
“It is time for the ‘most transparent administration ever’ to come clean on their political payoffs to Obama campaign bundler Steve Westly,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
“Yesterday, Westly’s spokesman claimed they were ‘as transparent as possible’ while Westly-backed companies received hundreds of millions of dollars in Energy Department loans. But the Obama administration has yet to release the ‘conflict of interest’ review and other documents and communications related to Westly’s service on the Energy Secretary’s Advisory Board.
“It hardly seems ‘above the board,’ as the spokesman claims, for a major political fundraiser to have a plum Energy Department post while taxpayer dollars are directed to his energy companies. It reeks of crony capitalism, and the American taxpayers deserve answers.”
