NHGOP CALLS ON SHAHEEN TO CANCEL FUNDRAISER AT HOME OF WASHINGTON LOBBYIST TIED TO PROSTITUTION RING 

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.

NHDP - Granite State Forward Hosts Events Across the State in Honor of Women's Equality Day 

The New Hampshire Democratic Party’s Coordinated Campaign, Granite State Forward, will host women-to-women phone banks and organizing events across the state this week in honor of Women's Equality Day. Over the course of the past two months, hundreds of women have volunteered and taken action to reach out to tens of thousands of their friends and neighbors to talk about what's at stake this election.
 
While Women’s Equality Day commemorates the day the 19th Amendment was ratified in 1920, it is also a reminder that in the year 2014, there is still much work to be done toward achieving full equality for women.
 
“While Republicans down the ballot have sought to block equal pay for equal work, limit women’s access to contraception and allow employers to stand between women and their doctors, our female leaders at the top of the ticket have been fierce advocates for New Hampshire women and families,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Julie McClain. “This week, Women’s Equality Day is a call for action because when New Hampshire women organize, our state moves forward.”
 
For more details on the events, including those that will be open to members of the media, please contact Julie McClain at jmcclain@nhdp.org.
