September 27, 2010

SOUTH LOUISIANA – The Downer campaign recently discovered that Jeff Landry paid nearly $40,000 out of his campaign account to his own company, even using the campaign’s money to pay for his employees’ “payroll.” Landry relies on this company for over a third of his personal income. Recently, the Downer campaign posted a “lie” on their website www.JeffLandryLiedtoYOU.com detailing issues Landry has had in the past and present with the FEC regarding campaign financing.

Below is how Landry paid himself nearly $40,000:

This campaign financing issue comes a week after the Downer campaign launched the website www.JeffLandryLiedtoYOU.com to clearly lay out the exhaustive list of things that Jeff Landry has lied to the public about. Downer’s campaign will update the site every day with an instance of Landry being dishonest to voters previously during the campaign.

“Jeff Landry’s contributors might be surprised to learn how he is using their financial contributions. Why is Jeff paying his own company nearly $40,000 and employees of his company from his campaign account? This is just another example of how Jeff Landry operates. This sort of questionable financing is exactly why Washington is broken. We’ve said since the day after the election that Landry has been lying to the public regarding his positions on key issues and things in his past, and has repeatedly lied about Hunt’s record,” said Buddy Boe, Downer’s campaign manager.
