Maine Senate candidate, Scott D’Amboise calls on Olympia Snowe to resign in face of husband’s scandal


The Daily Caller

The Justice Department joins suit against firm chaired by Olympia Snowe’s husband.  Unwittingly the racist Justice Department run by Obama and Holder has attacked a white republican female that is considered a throw away by the republican party.  The voters in Maine don’t want this RINO “NO MO.” 

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Scott D'Amboise, Snowe's challenger, on Tuesday called on Snowe to resign from the Senate after a whistleblower lawsuit accused Pittsburgh-based Education Management Corp. of defrauding the government of taxpayer-funded financial aid by illegally compensating its recruiters on a per-person basis. Snowe's husband, former Maine Gov. John McKernan, is Education Management's board chairman.Conservative D’Amboise to defeat RINO Snowe in 2012

Scott D’Amboise, Snowe’s challenger, on Tuesday called on Snowe to resign from the Senate after a whistleblower lawsuit accused Pittsburgh-based Education Management Corp. of defrauding the government of taxpayer-funded financial aid by illegally compensating its recruiters on a per-person basis. Snowe’s husband, former Maine Gov. John McKernan, is Education Management’s board chairman.

Maine Republican Senate candidate Scott D’Amboise, who is challenging sitting Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe in the upcoming 2012 primary, called on Snowe to resign from her seat immediately.

D’Amboise issued a statement Tuesday morning calling on Snowe to resign after the U.S. Department of Justice joined a lawsuit against Education Management Corporation (EDMC), a company that has employed her husband, former Maine Gov. John McKernan, for the past 12 years. The suit alleges that EDMC had defrauded the government of financial aid funding.

D’Amboise said Snowe has “directly benefited” from her husband’s financial activity, which he describes as, “defrauding of taxpayers, pocketing millions of dollars – millions of our hard-earned tax dollars.” D’Amboise also said Snowe “became a millionaire with our money.”

“Olympia Snowe owes us two things – an explanation and a letter of resignation. Instead, she is in holed up in her ornate Washington, D.C. office refusing to explain what she knew and when she knew it,” D’Amboise said in his statement. “How can your spouse bring in millions of dollars without asking him how he was making all that money? Olympia is a smart lady. She had to know something was fishy about how her husband was doing business.”

D’Amboise, who considers himself a representative of the Tea Party movement, announced his official candidacy to challenge Snowe in the 2012 GOP primary in February 2010.

Snowe’s office did not immediately respond to TheDC’s request for comment.
