NEW: GOP Accuses Raimondo of Pay-for-Play
Thursday, August 09, 2012
Republican Chairman Mark Zaccaria released a statement today regarding Rhode Island State Treasurer Gina Raimondo and her involvement in awarding state contracts to campaign donors.
"State Treasurer Raimondo should immediately give back all campaign donations received from donors connected with any firm to which she has awarded lucrative state contracts,” Zacarria said. “It clearly is a case of ‘pay-to-play’ and Rhode Islanders have had enough of this behavior from elected officials.
"It is no wonder why researchers at the United States Public Interest Research Group (U.S. PIRG) gave Rhode Island a D- for transparency earlier this year. We continually see this behavior in our state and it must end before we can hope to have a government that measures up to what the hard working, tax paying men and women of Rhode Island deserve.”
