SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The Mel Hall for Congress campaign began airing a new 30-second TV ad today, titled “Privacy.” The ad highlights Rep. Walorski’s vote to allow internet service providers (ISPs) to use and sell customers’ private information without their permission and the $115,750 she has taken in campaign contributions from special interests representing ISPs.
“Rep. Walorski’s vote was a blatant abuse of her constituents’ trust,” said Max Harris, Hall’s campaign manager. “Hoosiers should not live in fear that their personal information – including Social Security numbers – might be stolen or sold to the highest bidder. Apparently, Rep. Walorski thought $115,750 to her campaign was enough to sell out her constituents.”
Rep. Walorski has consistently sided with the corporate special interests that have funded her Congressional campaigns. Since she first started running for Congress in 2009, Rep. Walorski has taken $3.2 million (thus far) from special interests in exchange for her votes that leave Hoosiers behind.
Mel Hall is the only candidate in the race for Congress who refuses to take any corporate PAC contributions, and he is the only candidate in this race with a written reform plan to clean up Congress. Unlike Rep. Walorski, Hall will always put Hoosiers first.
