SPRINGFIELD – On a press conference call that just ended, 13th CD Democrat candidate Dr. David Gill and his staffer “Lucie” responded to IL GOP accusations of coordinating with the DCCC by reading a prepared statement for reporters concerning a fund Gill insists is funded by grassroots donations rather than the corporate donations.
“The money being spent is from the DCCC’s grassroots funds,” Gill said, and insisted those DCCC funds are not from corporations, according to his personal campaign funding rules.
When reporters pressed for more information on the mysterious DCCC fund, Gill suddenly dropped off the call and left the staffer “Lucie” to sweep up. The call without edits – Download Gillpresser audio
The NRCC spokeswoman Katie Prill issued this statement about the Gill Presser call:
“David Gill couldn’t answer questions about his hypocritical ad and his less-than-transparent approach to this bogus campaign spin. Illinois families are looking for answers but David Gill refuses to be honest. If David Gill will deceive voters about a TV ad, how can Illinois families trust that he will be in honest in Congress?”
