For immediate release:
My opponent John Ratcliffe admitted last night in a candidate forum that he IS partners in the Apollo Services llc with the Ashcroft Group lobbying firm.
These facts are what he was originally denying and calling me a liar on.
At least he finally admitted to the connection and thus the conflict of interest. I would also hope that he would issue a retraction re the lying accusation as well.
I also called on him to resign from his committee seats to avoid any further conflict or appearance of impropriety.
