"Chronicle Article is Misleading"
|Steve Westly is fighting backing against a San Francisco Chronicle article about his IPO sales. |
The article in the San Francisco Chronicle is misleading and any suggestion that laddering occurred is false. While I invite and expect scrutiny, I expect such scrutiny to be fair and accurate. This article is neither. There was no laddering and no laddering agreement...It is irresponsible for a newspaper to make such allegations when there is no evidence to support the charge.
Unfortunately, Westly declined a Chronicle interview for the article in advance.
When The Chronicle sought to interview Westly about the stock trades, campaign manager Jude Barry said he would speak for Westly.
