By Sheila Van Dan: A DeBow flip-flop?
This letter is in response to Royce DeBow's constant misinformation of the of the facts on recent elections. DeBow seems to have flip-flopped on the issue of how Ryan Schroeder supposedly violated campaign finance laws.
I reference a letter to the editor that appeared in the Walworth County Week on Oct. 23. In that letter, DeBow dishonestly states that Ryan Schroeder, "violated campaign finance laws, using state campaign account money for a local election."
According to the Walworth County Week's Web site under comments to a letter written by Joanne Williams, DeBow now admits that it is legal to use one account to run a state or local campaign. He flip-flops and says Schroeder correctly used only one depository.
Yet, DeBow continues to think a violation took place without saying what that violation might be.
This leads me to believe he must be referring to Schroeder's reelection campaign for city alderman. Is DeBow trying to say that Schroeder did not file a copy of his finance report to the Delavan city clerk?
Perhaps, once again, DeBow does not understand elections laws. Schroeder did not spend over $1,000 to be reelected to the city council. By law, he is not required to submit a financial statement to the city clerk.
As I always do, I did submit a report to the state elections board and the city clerk also has a copy of that report.
I carefully point this out to show that DeBow is the flip-flopper. He also does not investigate the facts before writing half-truths and lies in his letters to the editor.
As DeBow frequently likes to say, "Who has egg on their face now?"
