STATEMENT FROM CANDIDATE FOR THE
UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
JAY BULLOCK on
MILWAUKEE--In a newspaper report and in scurrilous blog postings across the Wisconsin Internet, the accusation has been made that Jay Bullock, who announced this morning that he is running against US Rep. Paul Ryan, is somehow not an American citizen, and was instead born in Canada.
"That's ridiculous," Bullock insisted this afternoon. "I was born in this country, and my opponents are merely trying to colour this race with their accusations and buffoonery."
The candidate continued, "Clearly, Paul Ryan and the GOP are running scared, because their friends and neighbours are onto their scam, and are looking for a legitimate alternative to their anti-middle class platform."
He concluded, "They're merely grasping at straws, like a hoser robbing a Tim Horton's."
