I'm pressed for time this morning, so as a quick follow-up to our previous story on this issue, I am going to put up a press release I just got from the Kirk Campaign and we'll discuss this more later:
Kirk Campaign Expresses Serious Concern over Report that Giannoulias Event Host Intimidated Young Woman after Fundraiser
Giannoulias should identify all those involved, terminate affiliation with the campaign and apologize to the people of Illinois
Northbrook, Ill. – The Kirk for Senate campaign today expressed serious concern regarding a report in Politico that a campaign fundraiser for Alexi Giannoulias' Senate campaign intimidated a young woman in Washington, D.C. following a campaign fundraiser last week.
The report follows a video that surfaced on the Web last week showing Giannoulias campaign affiliates manhandling a videographer at a Giannoulias DC fundraiser.
“The news that Alexi Giannoulias’ campaign event host intimidated a young woman at her home in Washington following the campaign’s DC fundraiser raises serious concerns with regard to the integrity of the Giannoulias campaign and its associates,” Kirk spokesperson Kirsten Kukowski said. “We call on Alexi Giannoulias to immediately apologize for his campaign affiliates' intimidation tactics, publicly identify all those involved and terminate all association with them.”
