Today is Senator Jeanne Shaheen's K Street fundraiser titled: "DC for Jeanne Shaheen"
(June 17, 2014) - This evening, Senator Jeanne Shaheen will be attending a fundraiser at a K Street lobbying firm in Washington DC instead of holding a town hall meeting in New Hampshire.
In a blatant continuation of her decision to trade New Hampshire independence for Washington allegiances, the title of the fundraiser on the ActBlue website is actually "DC for Jeanne Shaheen."
On Friday, it was reported that Senator Shaheen was in Chicago for a "fundraising swing" as well.
Derek Dufresne, spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement:
"Senator Jeanne Shaheen has voted 99% of the time with President Obama despite her 2008 promise to be a 'strong independent voice' for the Granite State. It has become all too clear that when Governor Shaheen became Senator Shaheen, she forgot about New Hampshire.
"The harsh reality is that our state's senior senator refuses to hold town hall meetings or open forums with her constituents. However, she is all to eager to continue to give access to out-of-state donors and lobbyists. To make matters worse, Senator Shaheen has amplified her arrogance towards those whom she is expected to represent by attending a fundraiser titled 'DC for Jeanne Shaheen.' Granite Staters deserve a senator who cares about reflecting their values on Capitol Hill, not the other way around. This fundraiser on K Street is just another example of how Jeanne Shaheen is not that senator."
