Frank Guinta’s Re-Election Off to A Rocky Start

Press Release: Frank Guinta’s Re-Election Off to A Rocky Start

Guinta votes to protect predatory payday lenders, received payday lending contribution at end of last month

Rochester, New Hampshire-   If Frank Guinta’s first week of his re-election campaign demonstrates anything – it is that he has already shown his true allegiances to the big banks, and can’t be trusted to look out for middle-class New Hampshire families.

First: he announced that he was paying back his parents the illegal money he took to first get elected to office – after years of lying to the press and Granite Staters claiming that he committed no wrongdoing.

Then: House Republicans rewarded Guinta’s stellar record of financial stewardship by placing him on the Budget Committee to oversee how to spend taxpayers’ money. You read that right.

Yesterday: Guinta voted to gut protections against pay day lenders who potentially abuse their access to American’s bank accounts. Perhaps a campaign contribution from a pay day lending PAC at the end of last month helped guide Guinta to his vote today. With just $12,000 cash on hand, it’s no surprise that his campaign is desperate for the money.

“Less than a week since announcing his re-election, Guinta has already lied again about his illegal campaign contributions, saw his bad behavior rewarded by House Republicans who just gave him a seat on the budget committee in spite of his inability to manage money and follow the law, and is now protecting predatory lenders from accountability when they exploit American consumers,” said Naomi Andrews, Carol Shea Porter's campaign manager in New Hampshire’s 1st  Congressional District. “If Frank Guinta’s first week of his re-election campaign demonstrates anything – it’s that he will do and say anything to stay in office, and that he can’t be trusted."
