NY-26: Jack Davis Apologizes For "Payments"

by on August 9, 2008

Jack Davis may have once been a Republican, but if he thinks that a mere apology for alleged bribes is enough to put the issue to rest, then he’s truly a typical Democrat.

Democratic congressional candidate Jack Davis apologized today for $10,000 in payments he made to the wives of Western New York’s most influential Independence Party leaders that critics called “bribes.”

The candidate, who has promised to spend $3 million of his own money in his third attempt at winning the seat of retiring Republican Thomas N. Reynolds, said his payments to the wives of Independence Chairment Anthony L. Orsini Jr. of Erie County and Rafael Colon of Monroe County for “consulting” services constituted a “mistake.”

“I am severing my relationships with the consultants in question and apologize for my part in the spectacle,” he said.

Jon Powers naturally took advantage of the story, but if Jack Davis survives this, I won’t be surprised. Perhaps a few campaign appearances with William Jefferson will lead him down the path to a victory on September 9th.
