Text of the press release:
BIRMINGHAM – The Davis for Governor campaign is airing a new ad putting the spotlight on Ron Sparks’ corruption problem and highlighting Sparks’ $500,000 shady loan. The ad, entitled “Corruption Problem,” is airing statewide. You can view the ad here, and see the fact check document here.
Below is the script for “Corruption Problem”
Politicians and Montgomery lobbyists under investigation again.
And what about Ron Sparks? This year Sparks got a $500,000 bank loan on a state government salary with no assets; from a bank with ties to the same gambling interests who may have been trying to bribe politicians.
Alabama newspapers say Sparks’ loan raises questions about his integrity and credibility. Banking experts say they’ve never heard of such a sweetheart deal. Politicians and tainted money, that’s Ron Sparks. And it’s everything that’s wrong with Alabama politics.
