HARRISBURG, PA--Supporters of Republican Attorney General candidate David Freed are planning an unauthorized political fundraiser at Beaver Stadium.
According to the website of lobbying firm Greenlee Partners, the fundraiser is scheduled as a "Penn State Tailgate In Support of David Freed, Candidate for Attorney General" (http://www.greenleepartners.com/event.php?eid=4279#eventDetail). It is planned for September 22 at the home game against Temple.
Keystone Progress contacted Penn State's Beaver Stadium and inquired about whether it was permissible to hold a political fundraiser on the grounds of Beaver Stadium and told that it violated the policy of Penn State to hold a political event on the grounds.
"It is disturbing that a candidate for Attorney General would allow its campaign to blatantly violate the rules of Penn State," said Michael Morrill, executive director of Keystone Progress. "A candidate for Attorney General needs to be above reproach, and should not violate the rules of Penn State for political gain. We had enough of that from the prior Attorney General."
