Bernier to Donovan: How do you like your chicken?

|

Justin Bernier, part of the quartet of Republicans running for Congress in the 5th District, is telling House Speaker Chris Donovan to man up.

Donovan sent Tom Swan into the dragon’s lair this afternoon to answer questions about criminal charges against the former finance director of his congressional campaign.

“Chris Donovan should speak for himself whether or not he is guilty of corruption,” Bernier said in a statement released just minutes after the conclusion of the presser. “Hiding behind staff shows a real lack of courage by this candidate. If Chris Donovan cannot answer questions about his own campaign and his own votes, then he has no business representing the people of the 5th District in Congress.”

    Not likely that Mr. Donovan will make himself available to the media for questions. Mr. Swan is his firewall. Mr. Donovan cannot be held legally responsible for anything Mr. Swan says on his behalf. If the FBI Dicks are after Geppetto, he’ll need a Pinocchio. Dummies don’t go to jail.
