Almost 1 Month Later, Still No Answers on Career Albany Politician Tedisco’s Felon Contributor
Voters still don't have the answers they deserve when it comes to Tedisco's felon contributor. The career Albany politician who wrote a letter to a judge requesting a lighter sentence for a contributor who was convicted of mortgage fraud instead only offers voters propaganda in the form of staged campaign stunts. Last night, Tedisco even dodged a WMHT-TV debate. Instead of fielding tough questions from journalists to a televised audience, Tedisco took softball questions from supporters who applauded each of his canned answers.
"Voters deserve to know why Career Albany politician Jim Tedisco used his position in office to help a criminal campaign contributor," said Jennifer Crider, Communications Director for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. "Tedisco continues to dodge questions about why he puts felons before what's best for Upstate families and created a job with a six figure salary for another contributor. The last thing Upstate families need is another career Albany politician like Jim Tedisco who will try to bring his question ducking and felon-supporting ways to Washington."
