NEWS ALERT: Top Dem House hopeful funded Gitmo detainees’ legal help ‘just after 9/11’
“We now know why the nonpartisan Cook Political Report calls Scott Wallace a “badly flawed candidate.” We are literally at a loss for words at the new information that is coming out on a daily basis about Scott Wallace. First we learn of Wallace’s funding and support for an organization that repeatedly gave a national platform to a cop-killer, while Wallace is running against a career law enforcement officer and FBI Agent in Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick. Now we learn of Wallace’s funding and support for legal representation of terrorists, while he’s running against a former Operation Iraqi Freedom al-Qaeda interrogator in Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick. You just can’t make this stuff up. And if that wasn’t bad enough, we now learn that Wallace has a history opposing laws that protect victims of sexual abuse, according to op-eds and interviews dating back to the 1990s.
In all of our years we have never encountered anyone as extreme and dangerous as Scott Wallace. The fact that the Fraternal Order of Police Presidents and Community Law Enforcement leaders lashed out against Wallace early this week didn’t come a moment too soon. This man is uniquely unfit to serve in Congress and poses an existential threat to our community.” –Haley Bova, Spokesperson for Team Fitzpatrick
