Naples Daily News:
Congressional candidate Curt Clawson's Super Bowl TV ad said he wanted a three-point shootout with President Obama, but now he's faced with a three-on-one with the other Republicans in the primary race.
Tuesday, they issued a joint press release calling for him to explain his ties to a man in Utah who lived in a house Clawson owned and who was convicted of attempted sexual assault on a child, according to online court and property records in Utah.
Clawson's campaign said in a statement he knows the man from childhood, and that the man had been staying in a home Clawson owned in Utah, but that he hasn't talked to him in years.
The other three Republicans in the primary race for Congress issued a joint press release Tuesday calling for Clawson to better explain his ties to the man.
Candidates Lizbeth Benacquisto, Michael Dreikorn and Paige Kreegel released a joint statement Tuesday "demanding that Curt Clawson explain contradictory statements he made regarding his relationship with ... Glen Borst and subsequent falsification of his financial disclosure."
