(August 5, 2014) - Today, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is launching a new web advertisement titled, "Jack in the Box." The commercial focuses on Senator Jeanne Shaheen, and her husband's business interests, profiting from her vote for the wasteful $787 billion stimulus program. It also sheds light on her refusal to discuss it. Senator Shaheen's husband, Bill Shaheen, is a former US attorney and a partner in one of the most politically connected law firms in New Hampshire. Shaheen has been heavily criticized in recent months with regards to her husband's firm's "stimulus opportunities team." The online advertisements will be backed with significant resources and will have statewide reach.
In addition, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is also launching a new micro website,www.WhyIsSheHiding.com. The site will be an offshoot of the organization's main website,www.StrongNH.com, and highlights web videos, articles, and press releases that show Senator Shaheen's refusal to meet with her constituents or discuss the important issues facing Granite Staters.
Derek Dufresne, spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement:
"What's worse than career politicians, like Senator Jeanne Shaheen, who supported the $787 billion 'stimulus' plan that did little for New Hampshire? That her own business interests benefited from it. In fact, they did so to the tune of $78,000.
"That is $78,000 of your hard-earned money she used to line her own pockets. It's no wonder she wants to avoid us and refuses to have open and public Town Hall meetings. We encourage Granite Staters to take a look at our new commercial and visit www.WhyIsSheHiding.com. There certainly are a lot of reasons why Senator Shaheen might want to avoid her constituents, but it is time our state's senior senator stops hiding and starts answering for years of failed leadership."
