New Ad In IL-06 Details Sean Casten’s Shady Business Record

Casten’s business record is clouded by scandal and allegations of fraud

WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today released a new ad, “Fraud,” in Illinois’ 6th Congressional District. The ad highlights Sean Casten’s business record that is clouded by scandal and allegations of fraud. The ad will run on television in the Chicago media market and on digital platforms throughout the district.

“Sean Casten’s business record is clouded by scandal and allegations of fraud, he was even sued by investors for mismanagement,” said Michael Byerly, CLF spokesman. “Casten has spent his business career profiting from insider deals, spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on lobbyists, and taking millions of dollars in corporate welfare. Casten talks about cleaning up Washington, but he’s just another shady Madigan-machine politician who would make Washington worse.”

In addition to the ad campaign, CLF previously 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.
