As a CEO, Sean Casten was sued for self-enrichment and ripping off taxpayers
WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today released a new ad, “Greed,” in Illinois’ 6th Congressional District. The ad slams Sean Casten for being sued by investors for mismanagement and self-enrichment in addition to giving out huge bonuses to himself as the company was tanking. The ad will air on television and digital platforms in the Chicago media market.
“While Sean Casten claims to be a successful businessman, the truth is Casten ripped off taxpayers and was sued for mismanagement and self-enrichment by his investors,” said Michael Byerly, CLF spokesman. “Casten spent his business career looking out for himself at the expense of hardworking taxpayers and employees, he just can’t be trusted to represent Illinois.”
This is CLF’s first television ad in Illinois’ 6th Congressional District. In addition to the ad campaign, CLF has opened a field office in Illinois’ 6th Congressional District. Each CLF field office is supported by a full-time staffer and hundreds of interns and volunteers who engage with voters on a daily basis through hyper-targeted phone banking and door-to-door canvassing.
