NHDP - Ayotte Silent on Senate Bill to Preserve Unemployment Benefits for New Hampshire

Kelly Ayotte is Quick to Defend Reckless Political Hold-Up of Benefits Last Week, But Stays Silent Whether She Supports Bill to Preserve Benefits for Thousands of Unemployed Across NH

CONCORD- After rushing to defend the political stunt work of Sen. Jim Bunning from Kentucky, who held up extending unemployment benefits for nearly a week, Republican senate candidate Kelly Ayotte has stayed silent on whether she supports the bill coming before the senate today which would preserve these benefits for the thousands of middle-class families across New Hampshire who rely on them to make ends meet.
Over the weekend, Ayotte defended Sen. Bunning, who kept the senate in gridlock for nearly a week, threatening unemployment benefits for families across the Granite State. Now, as the full senate is set to vote on preserving these benefits, will Ayotte fall in line with the Washington GOP once again and oppose help for New Hampshire's middle class?  
"Kelly Ayotte finally finds her voice, and the only thing she uses it for is to defend Washington gridlock and the GOP's disastrous political stunt work," said Emily Browne, Press Secretary for the New Hampshire Democratic Party. "She has stayed silent on whether she would actually support this bill, which will deliver crucial unemployment benefits to the men and women of this state who desperately need them. Kelly Ayotte is proving once again that the only time she'll stand up is when Republicans in Washington prop her up, rather than when the middle-class families of New Hampshire truly need her."

Today, John Avalon wrote a piece for the Daily Beast describing those who are asking for a new 9/11 investigation as "wingnuts."  What he fails to tell us is that, as "propaganda chief"  for Rudy Guliani, a man whose former chief of staff is now doing time as a Mafia "bag man" Bernie Kerik, burying the truth has long been a part of his job.

The prisoner in question, Bernie Kerik, was supposed to head Homeland Security.  Think about a character from the movie Goodfellas as the nation's chief law enforcement official and you have an idea where John Avalon comes from.  The only way of going further would have been to put the ghost of the "dapper don," John Gotti himself into the Whitehouse.  Is Avalon another Kerik or just a "Kerik/Guliani associate?"
