US Senate candidate Jim Bender statement on Kelly Ayotte's 2008 mortgage fraud task force

Jim Bender - US Senate 2010

Jim Bender, Republican candidate for US Senate released the following statement regarding the WMUR tape of former Attorney General Kelly Ayotte on camera urging fraud victims to come forward and report crime to the mortgage fraud task force created by her office in 2008.

“Kelly Ayotte testified this week she had no knowledge of the alleged FRM ponzi scheme, so then why did she instruct her agency to create a mortgage fraud task force two years ago?  The people in New Hampshire have a right to know, what did Kelly Ayotte know and when did she know it.  She boasts that she’s a prosecutor, not a politician.  It seems she’s been doing the latter better than the former by saying one thing one day and then flip-flopping when it is politically convenient for her to say something different.  New Hampshire deserves to have someone represent them who will return trust and accountability back to Washington."
