10 Days, 10 Reasons We Can’t Trust Lobbyist David Jolly: He Accepted $25,000 From Former Clients

 

                                                                                  

Special interest Lobbyist David Jolly has spent his campaign lying to Pinellas residents and embracing “rigid ideological positions” that are out of touch with Pinellas values. So each day for the next 10 days, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee will highlight the top 10 reasons why Pinellas residents can’t trust special interest Lobbyist David Jolly to represent them.

Today’s reason: Washington Lobbyist David Jolly accepted $25,000 in campaign contributions from his former lobbying clients.  These same special interest clients received millions of taxpayer dollars while Jolly was their lobbyist.

“Each day of this campaign has brought new revelations about why Pinellas residents can’t trust special interest Lobbyist David Jolly,” said David Bergstein of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Now we’re learning that Lobbyist Jolly has taken thousands of dollars from his former lobbying clients – showing once again that Lobbyist Jolly will continue putting corporations and special interests over Pinellas residents. Lobbyist Jolly is willing to say anything to distract from his own record of putting Pinellas seniors’ retirement at risk, but Pinellas families just don’t trust a word that Lobbyist Jolly says.”
