Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today called on Senator Jeanne Shaheen to cancel a fundraiser this evening at the home of a Washington lobbyist tied to a prostitution ring.
"Granite Staters expect their elected officials to adhere to high ethical standards, and it's unseemly for Senator Shaheen to be involved in the sleazy underside of Washington politics," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "It is disgraceful that Senator Shaheen chose to kick off the general election campaign with a fundraiser at the home of a financial services lobbyist who has been convicted of illegal gift giving and tied to a prostitution ring. She needs to immediately cancel this fundraiser and return all donations from this disgraceful event."
The Daily Caller today reported that Senator Shaheen is scheduled to attend a fundraiser this evening at the posh Georgetown home of Bill Broydrick, a prominent Washington lobbyist.
In 2007, the Associated Press reported that Broydrick's phone number was found in phone records released by Jeane Palfrey, the infamous "D.C Madam". For 13 years, Palfrey operated a high-end prostitution business in Washington. Broydrick received three calls from her in 2004.
According to the Capital Times of Madison, Wisconsin, Broydrick also pleaded guilty in 1989 to providing an illegal gift to former Wisconsin state Sen. Gary George.
