Congressman Dave Joyce Joins Michael Grimm, Jim Renacci in ‘House of Scandal’

 

Michael Grimm and Jim Renacci aren’t the only Republicans running for re-election under a growing cloud of scandal – they are also joined by Congressman Dave Joyce, who is dogged by troubles of his own. Today the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee added Joyce to HouseofScandal.com, a new website to help voters keep track of all the indictments, ethical violations, mistresses and embezzlements.

Joyce was forced to withdraw his name from consideration as a candidate for U.S. Attorney after “questions arose during an FBI check of Joyce’s background.” Those questions allegedly surrounded allegations that Joyce withheld evidence during a murder case. Joyce refused requests to clarify the circumstances surrounding his withdrawal and said that questions on the issue were similar to asking: “When did I stop beating my wife?”

“Michael Grimm and Jim Renacci aren’t the only ones running for running for re-election under a growing cloud of scandal – they are also joined by Congressman Dave Joyce, who is facing allegations of withholding evidence during a murder case,” said Marc Brumer of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.  “The FBI aren’t the only ones who had questions about Congressman Joyce’s shady background. Ohio voters want answers about Joyce’s scandal-ridden past too.”
