WASHINGTON DC - Former Congressman Bob Dold is polling ahead of freshman incumbent U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider in the north suburban 10th CD, and the Congressional Leadership Fund is taking advantage of Illinois voters' disgust with corrupt politicians to raise even more questions about re-electing Schneider.
The Congressman refuses to be transparent, the group says, by refusing to open his tax returns for public perusal.
“Illinois voters have seen too many corrupt politicians with a lot to hide, and Illinois 10 residents deserve the truth from Brad Schneider. Brad Schneider may claim he will release just his 2013 return, but hitting the delay button while still hiding his 2011-2012 tax returns tells voters he’s not serious about accountabilitym" spokeswoman for CLF Emily Davis said Thursday.
"He’s proving to be just another secretive politician who pays lip service to transparency while hiding basic information about his tax obligations.”
Accompanying the ad, the CLF writes HERE:
Brad Schneider wants the power in Congress to determine Americans’ tax rates. But he doesn’t want Americans to know his. His Republican challenger Bob Dold has released tax returns back to 2009. Yet Brad Schneider refuses to be transparent and accountable with his:
