The following press release was issued by the Scott Milne for U.S. Senate campaign.

Pomfret, VT (September 12, 2016) – In response to VT Digger’s story about Pat Leahy’s questionable relationship with lobbyists and special interests, U.S. Senate candidate Scott Milne offered the following statement:

“These shocking and deeply troubling revelations are a case study in how the system is rigged to benefit career politicians like Pat Leahy and their special interest friends. This is a tangled web of impropriety that includes influence peddling, back scratching, water carrying and blatant conflicts of interest, and should be enough to convince anyone that our system of government is badly broken. Sadly, after 42 years in Washington, it is clear that Sen. Leahy is part of the problem.”
