Greg is there any chance you could either repost my comments on Facebook this morning or take this and run
SOS declaration has David Leibowitz as chairman of independent voices Arizona. A dark money group. The same group has been attacking Republicans. He is also on staff to Scott Smith. Everybody's been going after Ducey or Jones, but nobody in the media has even touched Smith And for some reason the media is giving Smith a pretty big pass other than the article today. But when you have your own staff person on your campaign committee running a dark money organization that has never happened in history of Arizona
I'm telling you the union connection is big with Republican voters.
The dark money group is attacking Republicans will have challenged using taxpayer money for union activity.
You get a picture of Scott in the middle and you draw the lines between him and all this money and the unions.
PS: You can also mention they spent over $1.1 million attacking me and my family.
Here's Leibowitz' response...
Hope this finds you well. I'm just writing to clear up some of the misperceptions in Councilman's DiCiccio's post.
1. Independent Voices Arizona is not a dark money group. Dark money groups are nonprofit organizations that are able to hide their donors. Instead, this is an independent expenditure committee. IE's must report all their donations and expenditures, making them open to public scrutiny.
2. This particular independent expenditure committee has one donor. Me.
3. So far, this IE has done one piece of direct mail. It's directed at the district in which I live, telling voters the facts about one of the candidates in that district. The campaign has not spent a dime on any other candidate and it's likely not to spend a dime on anybody else.
4. I do work for more than a dozen clients on both sides of the political aisle and outside the political world. I'm also voter, who in this case feels compelled to share some facts about a candidate in my own district. The mailer had nothing to do with any of my clients, Republican or Democrat. And it wasn't funded by anyone else but me.
Thanks for your time. I hope you will clear up some of the councilman's misconceptions.
