Congressman Keith Rothfus is up with his latest TV commercial.
The Sewickley Republican details his accomplishments concerning legislation to reform the VA.
In the thirty-second spot, three veterans justify their staunch support of Rep. Rothfus because of his handling of the outbreak of Legionnaires disease at the Pittsburgh VA hospital. The outbreak, which claimed the lives of 6 veterans, was ultimately found to be as a result of negligence in detecting and managing the outbreak.
“Six veterans died in Pittsburgh as a result of the Veterans Administration scandal. Those in charge received bonuses. Keith Rothfus passed a bipartisan amendment to stop VA senior executives from receiving bonuses,” declared the three veterans.
In a press release, Rothfus further stated, “We will continue to hold VA executives accountable for failing to provide our veterans with the treatment they earned after honorably serving our country…Our nation’s heroes deserve to receive quality treatment in a timely manner, and our government should never fail them again.”
Rothfus is facing Democratic Nominee Erin McClelland for the commonwealth’s Twelfth Congressional District which spans all of Beaver County, and parts of Allegheny, Cambria, Lawrence, Somerset, and Westmoreland Counties.
