(Oshkosh, WI) – Joe Leibham jets off to Washington, DC, today for a fundraiser with DC insiders and lobbyists at the exclusive, membership-by-invitation-only Capitol Hill Club, but it’s the company that he’ll keep while there that conservative voters should be shocked by.
The list of lobbyists to attend Leibham’s event includes Bill Broydrick, a former Democratic politician who recently threw a fundraiser for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke at his DC home. Burke is running to defeat Republican Gov. Scott Walker in what polls show to be a very close race.
The invitation for the event (http://i.imgur.com/2K9JffY.jpg), which bears the disclosure “Paid for by Leibham for Congress,” proudly proclaims Broydrick as one of the hosts.
“Voters in Wisconsin should be dismayed that Joe Leibham is already jetting out to DC to rake in campaign cash from lobbyists, but his association with Bill Broydrick, who has repeatedly and publicly stood against conservative principles, most notably by personally raising funds to help defeat Gov. Scott Walker, is shocking,” said Brandon VerVelde, Communication Director for the Grothman campaign.
“DC insiders have made their choice in this race, and their choice is Joe Leibham,” added VerVelde.
Broydrick doesn’t hold back his leftist philosophy on his blog, praising liberal Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin, and writing against Gov. Scott Walker’s Act 10 union reforms that balanced Wisconsin’s budget and fundamentally transformed Wisconsin government for the better. He believes that Susan Rice, who infamously blamed the terrorist attack on Benghazi on a “video,” is “eminently qualified to be Secretary of State.”
“Broydrick’s liberalism is well catalogued so Joe Leibham can’t possibly claim ignorance,” added VerVelde. “The only conclusion left is that rubbing elbows with the DC insiders while collecting large checks is more important than standing up for the conservative principles Joe Leibham claims to have.”
