Mary Miller Hid In Backroom To Dodge Questions About Her Relationship With Child Sex Predator

Miller was scheduled to attend a press conference in Chicago announcing the creation of the Illinois Freedom Caucus, but was in a “backroom” during the presser, according to a reporter present

Taylorville, IL — Mary Miller hid in a backroom during a press conference she was scheduled to attend so she could dodge questions about her relationship with a child sex predator.

“Mary Miller likes to say politicians are known by the people they hang around with. If that’s the case, she must explain why a man who served jail time for soliciting sex from a minor on the internet is working for her campaign. Miller’s continued silence on this issue and refusal to address questions from local media speaks volumes about her character and lack of judgement. Voters deserve answers. It’s time for Mary Miller to break her silence.” Aaron DeGroot, Davis campaign spokesperson

State Rep. Chris Miller, wife of Mary Miller, chairs the Illinois Freedom Caucus and held a press conference yesterday announcing the creation of the Caucus. Chris Miller was asked a question from a reporter about why his wife wasn’t participating in the press conference even though their media advisory said members of Congress would be participating in the presser.

Reporter: “The press release talked about members of Congress being a part of this, and I know your wife is in a backroom. Is she not here with you because of that report there’s a sex offender working [crosstalk]?”

Chris Miller refused to answer the question because it wasn’t on-topic, even though other press conference participants answered questions that were off-topic during the question-and-answer period. You can watch the full press conference here.

Andrew Roth, President of the State Freedom Caucus Network, then gave a bizarre excuse as to why members of Congress weren’t able to attend, saying there were logistical issues causing members’ absence, even though Mary Miller was in a backroom at the same location of the press conference, as a reporter earlier noted. Roth previously worked for the DC-based dark money Super PAC Club for Growth, which is single-handedly keeping Miller’s campaign for Congress afloat to the tune of millions of dollars.

Ben Szalinski, Legislative Reporter with The Daily Line, tweeted about how Miller was scheduled to attend the press conference, but didn’t show up.
