Altschuler Knocks Bishop for Fundraising in the Midst of a Gov't Shutdown

The campaign spokesman for Republican Randy Altschuler is knocking Democratic congressional incumbent Tim Bishop for holding a fundraiser Sunday as the federal government appears to be careening towards a shutdown.

“Since Washington politician Tim Bishop has proven again and again that he has no clue how to create jobs, cut spending or reduce the debt, it’s not a surprise that he’s more focused on winning re-election in 2012 than he is on actually trying to solve the problems we face as a nation today,” said Altschuler spokesman Christopher Maloney.

Tickets for the Southhampton fundraiser start at $100 a person. Jon Schneider, a spokesman for Bishop, said that the congressman will not attend if Congress is working through the weekend to pass the budget.

And he noted that Bishop has pledged to give away to charity any salary he earns if the government shuts down.

“He is not an outsourcing millionaire, so he has to raise money,” Schneider said. “We certainly don’t make any bones about it. He scheduled this a month ago not thinking that Republicans would try to shut down the government.”
