Statement from Burchett

Statement from Burchett campaign:

"Van Shaver is part of Rep. Matlock’s campaign, and it’s truly sad to see Rep. Matlock following up his illegal contributions with blatant falsehoods. Rep. Matlocks’s complaint is as shoddy as his own FEC report, and cites companies that didn’t even contribute to Mayor Burchett. Unlike Rep. Malock’s filing, Mayor Burchett’s FEC report adheres to federal election laws. Perhaps the Matlock campaign should do their own homework correctly before trying to do ours for us."
