CLF’s First Ad In PA-01: Scott Wallace Repeatedly Dodged U.S. Taxes

Scott Wallace inherited $100 million, but failed to pay his own taxes

WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today released a new ad, “Rich,” in Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District. The ad highlights Scott Wallace’s record of dodging U.S. taxes even after inheriting $100 million. The ad will run on television in the Philadelphia media market and on digital platforms throughout the district.

“Scott Wallace is out of touch with Pennsylvanians,” said Michael Byerly, CLF spokesman. “While hardworking Pennsylvania families paid their taxes on time, trust fund baby Scott Wallace repeatedly dodged U.S. taxes resulting in a $70,000 lien. Now Wallace wants to go to Congress to raise taxes on hardworking Pennsylvania families. They deserve better than a hypocrite like Scott Wallace.”

This is CLF’s first television ad in Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District. In addition to the ad campaign, CLF has opened a field office in Pennsylvania’s 1st 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.

Watch the ad, “Rich,” here.


VO: What’s rich?

Scott Wallace. He inherited a hundred million bucks.

But Wallace repeatedly failed to pay his own taxes.

Wallace was hit with a seventy-thousand-dollar lien for unpaid taxes.

But now Wallace wants to go to Congress to raise our taxes.

Delinquent taxes for him. Higher taxes for us.

That’s really, really rich.

Scott Wallace. 

Trust fund baby.

Tax dodger.
