WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today released a new ad, “Anything,” in California’s 39th Congressional District. The ad details a Democratic State Assembly candidate’s accusation that Gil Cisneros inappropriately invited himself to her hotel room and demanded sex in exchange for supporting her campaign.
“Gil Cisneros seems to be the latest rich and powerful man who thinks he can get away with anything,” said Courtney Alexander, CLF Communications Director. “According to a Democratic State Assembly candidate, Gil Cisneros invited himself to her hotel room and demanded sex in exchange for supporting her campaign. It’s wrong, disgusting, and completely unacceptable behavior for anyone, let alone a candidate for United States Congress.”
