D'ARCANGELO BACKS DEMOCRATIC MEASURE ON SUPER PAC DISCLOSURE

Calls Galvin's pro-transparency rhetoric "pure hypocrisy" given incumbent's refusal to turn over public records regarding his taxpayer-funded PSAs

Malden, MA – Malden City Councilor At-Large and Republican candidate for Secretary of State Dave D’Arcangelo today backed a Super PAC disclosure bill being promoted by State Democrats, while calling incumbent Bill Galvin’s pro-transparency rhetoric regarding the measure “pure hypocrisy” given the Secretary’s continued refusal to turn over public records showing how much taxpayer money his office has spent on election-style campaign ads masquerading as Public Service Announcements.

“I agree with Senator Majority Leader Stanley Rosenberg that we should close the loophole in current campaign finance law that allows candidates to withhold the names of donors until the end of a reporting cycle,” said D’Arcangelo. “We should be doing everything possible to make campaign finance more transparent, not less.”

While breaking with some in his party on the disclosure bill, D’Arcangelo reserved his sharpest criticism for Secretary of State Bill Galvin – saying the longtime incumbent is guilty of “pure hypocrisy” in his call for more transparency in campaign finance while continuing to refuse access to public records that could be damaging to him.

“Bill Galvin talking about the need for transparency is like Bonnie and Clyde talking about the need for law and order – it’s simply not credible. Galvin can’t demand transparency from others but not live up to that standard himself. He can’t have it both ways,” said D’Arcangelo. “For nearly three months Bill Galvin and his office have given me, and by extension all of the Commonwealth’s taxpayers, the run-around regarding the amount of money we’ve paid for his self-promotional PSAs. Galvin even went so far as to send me an official letter trying to shake me down for $5,300 to get access to records that the law says should be publicly available. With all due respect to Secretary Galvin, on the issue of transparency, his rhetoric doesn’t come close to matching his actions. If it did, he would tear up the $5,300 invoice he sent me and turn over the records I’ve requested regarding his PSAs immediately.”
