WARWICK, RI – Today, Ashley Kalus, the Republican nominee for Governor, released her second ad of the general election season titled “It’s Everywhere.”
Campaign spokesman Matthew Hanrahan said, “Failed career politicians like Governor McKee continue to represent the very worst of our state. While a decent mayor, he has been corrupted by power. He is under investigation by the FBI, the U.S. Attorneys General office, the Rhode Island Attorneys General Office, and the Rhode Island State Police.
“His first Chief of Staff had to resign in disgrace over a land deal where the Attorney General said he used ‘poor judgment.’ His second Chief of Staff was sued by the EDC for the 38 Studios fiasco, and his law firm had to pay a more than 4 million dollar fine. And his DMV Director was under surveillance for having a massage parlor in his commercial building.
“McKee has ethics violations, campaign finance violations, has failed to file financial disclosures, and, not surprisingly, has violated the Open Meetings law.
“We deserve better.”
Ashley Kalus is a mom, successful small business owner, Golden Gloves boxing champion, and political outsider. A resident of Newport, she is ready to fight for the people of Rhode Island.
