NEW AD CALLS INTO QUESTION DEAN YOUNG’S SELF-DEALING POLTICAL PAST

Posted on October 18th, 2013

Mobile, AL — Candidate for Alabama’s First Congressional District Bradley Byrne released a new television ad today.

The ad can be viewed here: http://bit.ly/1azJcSw

“This ad calls into question Dean Young’s self-dealing political past,” said campaign manager Alex Schriver. “The facts are straightforward – Young raised over $176,000 for the Christian Family Association PAC and paid his own consulting company 95% of the funds. This was not an isolated incident. Young has established numerous political action committees, raised money for them, spent the vast majority of those funds on his own consulting firm.”

“Voters deserve to know the truth: Dean Young is first and foremost a profiteering political operative, not a businessman,” Schriver concluded.

The ad began airing across the First Congressional District this week.
