Bost campaign condemns opponent as hypocrite for criticizing “dark money”



5ac7f2d773a14.previewMURPHYSBORO – The Blue Wave Democrats are predicting will sweep Nancy Pelosi back into US House Speaker includes four red congressional districts in Illinois turning blue: the Downstate 12th and 13th CDs, as well as the suburban 6th and 14th CDs. 

Congressman Mike Bost of the 12th CD is fighting to keep his seat from Democrat St. Clair State's Attorney Brendan Kelly.

Kelly is calling for "new leadership" and condemns the use of "dark money" in political campaigns. Kelly is a "hypocrite," Bost's campaign says.

The Bost campaign pointed out Wednesday that House Majority PAC, a Super PAC reliant on "dark money" and aligned with Nancy Pelosi, has reserved $381,105 in television advertisements to support Brendan Kelly's campaign, in addition to the $1,634,580 in television advertisements reserved by Nancy Pelosi's campaign arm in Washington, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. 

"If Brendan Kelly has an ounce of honesty in him, he should call for Nancy Pelosi and her DC cronies to pull all advertising from the 12th district," said Dustin Rhodes, Campaign Manager for Bost for Congress.  "Anything short of that is just another example of his hypocritical doublespeak."
