Gray deflects questions about campaigning while still employed by Attorney General

The Scott Milne for Lieutenant Governor campaign today released a transcript of an exchange yesterday between WPTZ reporter Stewart Ledbetter and Democrat Lieutenant Gov. Candidate Molly Gray in which she refuses to answer directly his question about working on campaign activities while on the job at the Vermont Attorney General’s office.

At a recent debate, Gray criticized Milne, a Republican, for a Freedom of Information Act request seeking all emails and other communications about campaigning while she was employed by the Attorney General. She called it a waste of taxpayers’ money at a time when state funds are in short supply. Milne countered that use of the FOIA process is an example of much-needed transparency in state government.

The link and transcript of Ledbetter’s Oct. 5 interview with Gray appear below.

Transcript:

SL: A list of Twitter posts emerged Monday, with time stamps suggesting Gray conducted some campaign activities during the workday as far back as February, well before taking leave from her $69,000 a year job as a state prosecutor.  Asked about that: 

MG: What I can say is my opponent has a history of attacking opponents.

SL: About the list of tweets, Molly?

MG: This is just another attack.

SL: They weren’t posted by you?

MG: This is just another attack.
