LETTER: Dykema Turned Away PAC Funding
Recent allegations of Rep. Carolyn Dykema accepting special interest donations to her re-election campaign are false.
Submitted by the Campaign to Eelct Carolyn Dykema regarding a post on Flemming-Hayes.com.
Yesterday you may have received factually inaccurate information from "writer" Shane at shane @flemingandhayes.com. I want to provide you with the facts.
The Dykema Campaign has never accepted special interest PAC contributions, so it was a shock to learn that the campaign had been accused of intentionally not reporting PAC campaign contribution.
The facts are that the campaign received a check of $500 from SEIU 1199 dated 10/3/12, which was returned with a formal letter on 10/23/12 (see attached). To be clear, this check was never cashed or deposited in any way and the suggestion that the campaign is somehow "hiding" campaign contributions is malicious and untrue.
The "writer" alleges that the Dykema campaign is somehow at fault because SEIU 1199 had not updated their records as of the date of the required filing. The file has since been updated and now accurately reflects that no contribution was made, here is a link to SEIU's amended filing: http://www.efs.cpf.state.ma.us/DisplayReport.aspx?reportId=161365.
I hope that you will recognize this attempt to mislead voters and that you will consider all the facts and the motives of the sources before deciding whether to print any material relative to this matter.
As always, the Dykema Campaign stands ready to answer questions and would gladly provide any additional information you may require.
Committee to Elect Carolyn Dykema
