Democratic congressional candidate David Gill is trying to defend himself against accusations of hypocrisy.
Gill’s latest TV ad touts his refusal to take money from corporations or Wall Street interests. But the ad is paid for in part by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee… which gets funds from both sources.
Gill says the money for the ad comes from a special D-triple-C “grass roots” fund that does not include corporate dollars. And Gill says it’s absurd for opponent Rodney Davis to criticize him, because he says Davis gets extensive corporate support.
