NHGOP TO SHAHEEN: GIVE MENENDEZ MONEY TO CHARITY 

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today called on Senator Jeanne Shaheen to donate all of the tainted campaign contributions she received from disgraced Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) to charity. Buzzfeed today reported that Shaheen is refusing to give up the donations and will only commit to holding them pending the outcome of his trial. Democratic Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Michael Bennet (D-CO) have decided to give up the donations immediately:


"Senator Klobuchar and Senator Bennet made the right decision to get rid of disgraced Senator Bob Menendez's tainted contributions. Senator Shaheen has no good reason to continue to hold on to Menedez's dirty money, and she needs to follow the lead of her senate colleagues and get rid of it immediately," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Senator Shaheen's continued unwillingness to purge these tainted donations from her campaign coffers raises serious questions about her commitment to integrity and ethics in government."


In 2008, then-candidate Shaheen called on Senator John Sununu to return campaign donations from Senator Ted Stevens (R-AK) after he was indicted, but before his trial. 
 

"Senator Shaheen demanded that Senator Sununu return campaign contributions from indicted Senator Ted Stevens but won't return her own donations from indicted Senator Bob Menendez. Granite Staters are smart enough to realize that she is a dishonest hypocrite who holds herself to a different standard than she holds others."

NHGOP CALLS ON SHAHEEN TO RETURN TAINTED MENENDEZ DONATIONS 

Call Follows Sen. Klobuchar's Decision To Return Disgraced New Jersey Senator's Contributions

 

Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today called on Senator Jeanne Shaheen to return donations from disgraced New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez. Menendez, who donated $7,500 to Shaheen through his New Millennium PAC, was indicted yesterday on bribery charges in what prosecutors called a scheme to trade political favors for luxury vacations, golf outings and expensive flights (New York Times, 4/1/15). Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) announced last night that she would voluntarily return all contributions from Menendez and his leadership PAC (USA Today4/2/15).

 

"Granite Staters expect their elected officials to stand up for integrity and high ethical standards in government. The criminal corruption charges that have been brought against Senator Menendez are extremely troubling, and it's time for Senator Shaheen to distance herself from her disgraced Democrat colleague by returning his tainted campaign donations," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Senator Amy Klobuchar made the right decision to return her tainted contributions. It's time for Senator Shaheen to follow her lead and immediately dump her dirty Menendez money."

 

In 2013, WMUR reported that Senator Menendez personally sent an email to his list of supporters asking them to donate money to Shaheen's reelection campaign.

Judicial Watch - Demand Hillary Clinton Release Her Emails NOW! 

FACT: Hillary Clinton used a secret email account to hide her actions while Secretary of State.

This fact was uncovered thanks to Judicial Watch Freedom of Information litigation pressure.

Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration may want the Clinton email scandal to go away.  Unlike the liberal media, Judicial Watch is independent and is increasing its pressure with new court actions.

…and as an incompetent and compromised Congress hopes someone in the Obama administration will do their job and enforce the law, Judicial Watch is getting to work! ­

Sign the Petition to Demand Hillary Clinton release her emails now!

Hillary Clinton’s email cover-up is potentially criminal in nature.

Not only are we in court to shake loose the secreted State Department records of Hillary Clinton, but we are pushing for more information on the records of President Obama, her co-conspirator in violating the American’s people “right to know.”

Judicial Watch is now pushing for action on this scandal before two federal court judges. And our investigations team just reported that, since the scandal broke, our investigators have filed 20 NEW information requests on the Clinton email scandal.  If you want the truth about Hillary Clinton, then you’ll want to start with Judicial Watch.  As Rush Limbaugh said recently:

"Mrs. Clinton, if you have nothing to hide, will you turn your servers over to Judicial Watch, whose issued a Freedom of Information Act request for them?"

Our goal – one that should be shared by Democrats, Republicans, liberals, and conservatives – is to recover and secure records that the public is entitled to under the law.

Sign the Petition to Demand Hillary Clinton release her emails now!

Sincerely,

The Judicial Watch Team
