first_imgGREGG CAMPAIGN RESPONDS TO LATEST HOLCOMB NEGATIVE ATTACK ADINDIANAPOLIS – Short on money, ideas and time, today Lt. Governor Eric Holcomb and his Washington DC allies launched yet another false attack on John Gregg.The 30-second ad, which does not provide a single citation or source for any of the accusations, is running statewide.“Eric Holcomb has run for three different statewide offices in the last six months so you’d think he would be able to come up with a single idea, a policy proposal or something to indicate just how he would lead the state forward rather than relying on these stale and desperate attacks,” said Tim Henderson, Gregg for Governor campaign manager. “Sadly, he can’t because Eric Holcomb brings nothing new to the table. He’s just a taller version of Mike Pence and will continue the same failed economic policies that have left so many middle class Hoosier families behind.”Please find a fact check on Eric Holcomb’s ad below.Charge: “…did side work for scandal-ridden Enron….Fact: John Gregg did zoning work to construct a power plant.“I had represented a company in Knox County that had built a power plan. An attorney doing legal work out of Louisville had called and asked me if I’d help him do some of the zoning. I do a lot of zoning work; it’s a large percentage of my income from the Vincennes law office. The company would pay me but I worked with their independent attorney, who was a great guy to work with. I didn’t think anything of it. I did stuff for them off and on for a year and a half, on their power plant and related issues. The company—well, you’d recognize the name, it was known as Enron—sadly went in the tank.” [“From Sandborn to the Statehouse,” pp 132-133]For more information on John Gregg or his campaign for Governor of Indiana, please visit www.greggforgovernor.com or call 317-510-1876.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
