OH-15: Mary Jo Kilroy’s Dirty Money
From the brilliant Mark Hemingway of the Examiner:
WHO: Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy, D-Ohio
WHAT: Kilroy received $10,000 from Rep. Charles Rangel’s National Leadership PAC, the political action committee of the powerful New York Democrat who is chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee that writes tax law.
WHY IT’S DIRTY: Rangel is being investigated on multiple issues by the House Ethics Committee, including failure to report income from properties he owns in New York and the Dominican Republic. A company that gave $1 million to a New York school facility that will bear Rangel’s name subsequently received lucrative tax breaks, and he has reportedly solicited political contributions on official stationery.
She apparently is not interested in ridding herself dirty money. I’m sure Mark’s requests for comment totally ruined Kilroy’s staff’s day. But they should brace themselves for further disappointment.
