Wall Street’s candidate, Alex Lasry, requested a 90-day extension on filing his statement of economic interests. The big problem with this is that the extension – that was in fact granted – puts him outside the 30-day window required by law. The law says that a candidate needs to file at least 30 days before the election. Additionally, this 90-day extension would mean Wisconsin voters would be kept in the dark about Lasry’s finances until after the primary election on August 9th.
Lasry is once again knowingly shielding voters from his financial information. Remember when he hid the fact he was receiving a property tax break in two states (NY and WI)?! This time around, however, it’s right before voters head to the ballot box.
Statement from NRSC Spokeswoman Lizzie Litzow: “Alex Lasry has a pattern of hiding information from people. If he’s doing it now ahead of a primary election, then I’m sure Wisconsinites don’t want to know what he would be capable of a U.S. Senator.”
