video: Block Blasts Fung, Taveras, Raimondo for Support of Fox

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

 

Ken Block called out some of his other running mates for the Governor's race by pointing to partnerships between gubernatorial candidates Allan Fung, Gina Raimondo, and Angel Taveras and recently ousted Speaker of the House Gordon Fox, in a press conference on Wednesday afternoon.

Block said that the ethics of Rhode Island politics needs to change and cited contributions that Raimondo, Fung, and Taveras made to Fox, as well as Raimondo and Taveras walking with Fox in his district while allegations of pay-to-play, corruption within the 38 Studios deal, and PEDP Loans were all taking place as evidence of ethical issues in the state.

In addition to calling out the other candidates for their relationships with Fox, Block called out Fung specifically by pointing out his accepted contributions from leaders of the Cranston Police Union, saying that these contributions were unacceptable.

"As Governor I will not accept any contributions from anyone who will be negotiating directly with the Governor's office," said Block. "Rhode Islanders deserve better than that and need to be able to have complete faith that their elected officials are acting solely in the best interests of their constituents."
