The 30 second ad features Mango speaking to camera and providing the voice over.
“I think any Harrisburg politician convicted of corruption should lose his state pension. There should be zero tolerance for sexual harassment by any Harrisburg politician. And if there’s a settlement, they should pay it, not the taxpayers,” Mango says.
The ad buy continues Mango’s introduction to statewide voters, putting his message out to a statewide audience to try to increase his name recognition ahead of the May primary.
The ad comes after allegations of multiple members of the state Legislature using tax payer dollars to settle sexual harassment claims. Mango, along with the rest of the GOP field for Governor did not join in calls for Congressman Pat Meehan to resign it was revealed Meehan used his office’s budget to settle a sexual harassment claim, though Mango faulted the use of taxpayer money to settle the claim.
Mango’s inclusion of lawmakers keeping their pensions after being convicted of crimes boosts his campaign message of being an ‘outsider.’
