RPOF Chairman Bitner Demands Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith Clarify His Statement On Fund Raising During Legislative Sessions
Tallahassee- Today, Republican Party of Florida Chairman David Bitner issued the following statement regarding Democratic Chairman Rod Smith’s comment on fundraising during legislative sessions.
“Chairman Smith should clarify his statement about fund raising activities during legislative sessions. Did he mean to say that Senator Bill Nelson will not be accepting any money leading up to, or during the federal legislative session? Will he also request that the Senator return any of the approximately 1.2 million dollars he has accepted from lobbyists during the legislative sessions since 2002?
“I find it interesting that Chairman Smith would like current members of the Senate to be held to standards that he did not hold himself to while serving in the legislature. Surely this statement was not another example of the Democrats asking others to do as they say and not as they do.”
