STATEMENT FROM ARMY VETERAN MAX ROSE RE: Dan Donovan Takes $10k from Purdue Pharma

NEW YORK – Today, the New York Post reported that Dan Donovan accepted nearly $10,000 in donations from Big Pharma executives that plead guilty to fueling the opioid crisis.
“Dan Donovan is guilty of accepting thousands of dollars from the men and the company responsible for the country’s opioid epidemic. This is a slap in the face to every person who has had to administer Narcan to save a life, buried their child after it was too late, and especially to all of those who are still struggling with their addiction. Cashing those checks was a betrayal of Staten Island and South Brooklyn and he doesn’t deserve to represent us any longer,” said Max Rose, Democratic Congressional Candidate for NY-11.
