Chris Latvala rejects Adam Putnam’s commentary

Putnam tweets that the Legislature "must investigate the allegations and ensure that victims may be heard without fear or reprisal."

It wasn't a matter of if, but when, Adam Putnam was going to put out a statement about allegations against Jack Latvala, one of his GOP opponents for governor.

Latvala's son, Rep. Chris Latvala, didn't take too kindly to it and tweeted this.

Latvala was likely referring to former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert, who worked closely with Putnam when he served in Congress. Hastert served 13 months in prison starting in 2016 after admitting he had sexually abused boys he supervised while he worked as a high school wrestling coach.

S0 yeah, this is pretty much going to be the most vicious race for governor we've seen in quite a long time.
