GOP Calling Gillibrand’s Bluff, Demand Proof That Her Independent Organization Has Benefited Republican Women

Yesterday, the New York GOP released the following statement in response to Senator Gillibrand’s (D-NY) appearance on MSNBC, where she claimed her “independent” organization helps women of both parties get elected:

Yesterday, on MSNBC, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand proudly touted her organization “Off the Sidelines.org” as one that works with both Democrat and Republican women alike, when in fact all proceeds of her seemingly independent organization go directly to her campaign war chest.

Last year, the Buffalo News reported on Senator Gillibrand’s “independent organization” as nothing more than a distraction.  The website encouraged people to donate to her re-election campaign by leading them to believe they were supporting women’s rights.  It was a duplicitous cash grab and a total misrepresentation of the group’s efforts and under pressure Senator Gillibrand admitted as much.

One year later, Senator Gillibrand is back at it, telling Alex Wagner of MSNBC that Off the Sidelines is helping both Republican and Democrat women get elected.

We call on Senator Gillibrand to identify those Republican women whom benefit, or have benefitted, from Off the Sidelines.org, or simply admit that contributions to the organization go directly to her reelection campaign, rather than to getting both Republican and Democrat women involved in the issues, as she claimed on Alex Wagner’s show yesterday.

Instead of touting bogus bipartisanship, Senator Gillibrand should focus on getting co-sponsors for any one of her stalled jobs bills or sponsor legislation to repeal Obamacare, which has raided $741 Billion from Medicare, putting our seniors at risk.

Here’s the video of Senator Gillibrand on the Alex Wagner show…

This report from the Weekly Standard seems to indicate that Gillibrand isn’t exactly being honest when she said Off the Sidelines benefits women of both party…

But OffTheSidelines appears to be nothing more than a gateway site and fundraising tool for the Gillibrand campaign. A disclaimer at the bottom of the page says the site is “paid for by Gillibrand for Senate.” The homepage has a prominent link to “Contribute to Gillibrand for Senate,” and another link to simply “contribute” leads to a Gillibrand for Senate contribution form.

Seems Gillibrand is all for supporting women’s rights – if that means sending money to one woman in particular.
