NEW: National GOP Launches Attack on Cicilline
Thursday, October 11, 2012
The website, titled Cicilline’s Secrets, makes the case that Congressman Cicilline “got rich by fighting to keep murders and child molesters out of jail, and even voted against laws to protect children.”
“David Cicilline’s troubling history of hiding the truth became evident when he withheld information about Providence’s finances,” said NRCC Communications Director Paul Lindsay. “This latest news about him choosing violent criminals and child molesters over victims is also revealing. The more you learn about Cicilline’s dark past, and who he’s chosen to fight for, the more it’s obvious that he is not fit to be in a position to protect the best interests of Rhode Island families who are struggling in this economy.”
Democratic Party spokesman Bill Fischer said Doherty is using "desperate, diversionary tactics" because he is behind in the polls.
"Mr. Doherty would rather embrace the NRCC's smear campaign than discuss the votes he'll take in Washington supporting Speaker Boehner's agenda to repeal health care reform and provide tax breaks for millionaires," Fischer said. "Simply put, it's pathetic and the voters in the First Congressional District are smart enough to see it for what it is."
