Daria Novak Op-Ed - Foreign Influence in CT Congressional Race
High Level Foreign Official from Socialist
Attempting to Influence CT Congressional Race
Daria interviews Dr. Ben Carson
Elci's show today I discussed the major ethical and potential legal issues
surrounding my opponent's proud announcement of her political and business
endorsement by a foreign vice president from a socialist nation. We Americans
have had enough of this type of influence peddling with Hillary Clinton. This
is what we are fighting to get rid of in DC!
Brooke's proud claim, in a radio interview Saturday, that the Vice President of
socialist Portugal endorsed her campaign is the first I know of a high-ranked
foreign leader getting involved in an American congressional level race in my
lifetime. On the 94.9 AM CT radio show "Political Class," Brookes
explained that she was paid by the government of Portugal to help sell off its
government assets and that she also worked for the "royal family" in
a failed $25 billion Iraqi deal. Other Portuguese officials already are
involved in another international influence peddling scandal in Africa.
immediately comes to mind is this - why and what favors does this vice
president get by involving himself in domestic American politics – by
supporting my opponent -- and what might he ask of this potential congresswoman
if she's elected? Brookes is using their relationship to push her candidacy.
She stated she met with him "almost daily" while in Portugal. So, we
can assume the relationship must have been close for such a high-ranked
individual to meet so often with an American.
Brookes needs to withdraw from Connecticut’s 2nd
congressional district race or explain herself to the voter's satisfaction. I
can't believe a successful international business attorney is ignorant of such
major ethical issues, of the potential for a federal Logan Act violation, or
the negative perception it creates of a US Congresswoman controlled by a
socialist nation active in Middle East politics, especially given that eastern
CT has many national security connections.
