FACING PRESSURE AND MEDIA SCRUTINY, SHAHEEN AMENDS DISCLOSURE FORM

 

Concord – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today after Senator Jeanne Shaheen announced that she would amend her personal financial disclosure form to correct errors regarding her shady stock deal. After facing pressure to explain her inconsistent story, a Shaheen spokesman told the Concord Monitor that the information on the form was incorrect and would be altered.  

“It’s clear that Senator Shaheen provided inaccurate information to the Senate Ethics Committee on her personal financial disclosure form. This error raises questions about a potential conflict of interest involving the Shaheens and their involvement with a company that received federal stimulus funds,” said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. “It’s also troubling that these discrepancies were only revealed after the Shaheens faced media security about their questionable finances. “
