Video: George LeMieux on his $150k minority outreach contract with Fla GOP



Republican U.S. Senate candidate George LeMieux appeared Sunday on Political Connections on Bay News 9 (Tune in Sun. for Rick Perry), where he weighed in on everything to his opposition to the Genting casino project to university funding to his $10,000-a-month consulting contract with the Florida GOP. It was for minority outreach and political advising of Gov. Charlie Crist, he said. Here's a clip. The full interview can be seen on Ch. 342, Bay News 9 on Demand in Tampa Bay.


Adam Hasner's campaign responded: "For over a year, George LeMieux has desperately tried to reinvent his political record to mislead voters about his pivotal role in shaping Charlie Crist's political career. Instead of being honest with Floridians about his record and his past, George LeMieux's denials and outright falsehoods have become a central part of his campaign."
