Dr. Leo Valentin Condemns Stephanie Murphy’s Push for Taxpayer Bailout of D.C. Lobbyists
Orlando, FL- As the news continues to come out about which lobbying firms in the D.C. swamp got PPP loans, Dr. Leo Valentin released the following statement to ensure Floridians know Stephanie Murphy was in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi, pushing for the controversial decision to allow a taxpayer bailout for corporate lobbyists. As The Intercept reported in May, when Nancy Pelosi was pushing for the taxpayer bailout for the K Street swamp, Stephanie Murphy was right there with her, going so far as participating in calls advocating for the lobbyist bailout. “This is a continued pattern of Stephanie Murphy siding with Nancy Pelosi over Floridians. Murphy ran on being a common sense bipartisan, and now chooses to protect corporate lobbyists in the Washington, D.C. swamp over Floridians every time she gets the chance,” said Dr. Leo Valentin.
