Wilson says liberal group’s lobbyist claim is false
A left-leaning group has accused Republican U.S. Senate candidate Heather Wilson of lobbying for an aeronautical company in Washington; Wilson says the allegation is false.
On its Wilson Watch website, the group has a section aimed at highlighting Wilson’s Washington ties. It states she was a lobbyist and, until Monday, linked to these documents showing that someone named Heather Wilson was a registered lobbyist for North Eastern Aeronautical in 2009 and 2010.
Wilson’s campaign spokesman, Christopher Sanchez, said it’s not the same Heather Wilson.
“Heather Wilson does not now, nor has she ever, had any employment, contract or affiliation of any kind with North Eastern Aeronautical,” Sanchez said.
ProgressNow’s Pat Davis took the lobbying documents off the Wilson Watch website on Monday after being contacted by NMPolitics.net for comment, and said the organization will double check Wilson’s claim.
“If this is not the same Heather Wilson, I am happy to post the correction,” he said.
ProgressNow, whose website states that it is a “non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots organization,” has been quite active this election cycle in New Mexico. Among its work was the outing of a man who illegally registered his dog to vote as the husband of a staffer on Wilson’s campaign.
