Taxpayers Now Funding Wolf Campaign
HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Communications Director Megan Sweeney was not surprised to see Governor Tom Wolf’s official office resorting to campaign-style negative attacks against Republican Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman.
“Even though Tom Wolf filled his taxpayer-funded office with campaign staffers, he needs to remember that the Office of the Governor is not there to carry out his unethical campaign tactics,” Sweeney said. “Tom Wolf already spent the first two months of summer forming shady political groups to conduct his dirty work, but apparently he also needs the taxpayer-funded Office of the Governor to amplify his campaign rhetoric.
“Pennsylvanians deserve better than a Governor who’s comfortable with sending taxpayer-funded, campaign-style attacks out to the media. At a time when Pennsylvania faces budget and pension crises that are worsening by the day, it’s sad to see our Governor spending his time on politics rather than joining Republicans in governing.”
In a release entitled “Governor: Senator Corman’s political expediency,” Jeffrey Sheridan, Press Secretary from the Office of the Governor, released an attack piece against Pennsylvania’s Senate Majority Leader.
