Page 3 Hells Canyon Journal July 10, 1996 Wes Cooley Will Run for Second Term District 28 U.S. Represen- tative Wes Cooley (R) has not faltered in his determination to seek a second term, or his belief that he can win despite so-far unconfirmed allega- tions about his truthfulness. "My mail has been run- ning 4-1 in favor," Cooley has told supporters. "If I was a good enough representative for you all the way up until the press started beating up on me, how is that going to change (if elected to another term)?" Cooley's Baker County campaign manager, Holly Sullens, whose husband Will is county Republican central committee chairman, spoke to the Hells Canyon Journal on Monday. "The liberal media sure must be dancing with glee just at the thought of the tur- moil they've created amongst our own ranks," Holly said. "Trial by media is very ugly. We are trying to find Sgt. Major Clifford Lee Poppy, who was on Channel 8 and was quoted as sayingWes was in the service with him but not in Korea. We're trying to fred him but so far have found only his cousin, who says he hasn't seen Clifford Lee in years. We want to know if this man is real.., and alive." Allegations facing Cooley is that information in the Voter's Pamphlet that he served in Korea is false; a federal investigation focuses on his wife Rosemary's col- lection of her deceased husband's veteran's benefits while they lived together be- fore their marriage and prop- erty tax appraisal informa- tion. An ad hoc group in Ontario met recently to examine cop- ies of official documents re- leased earlier by Cooley. "Accounts of Cooley's mis- conduct have been greatly sensationalized," said Ontario businessman John Stubstad. "The public needs to know that he's appropri- ately responded to each and every charge brought against him." Nell Venturacci, who chaired the meeting, said "I'm satisfied that the affidavits, letters and official documents presented to us (by Cooley) are authentic." Bob Shuster, mayor the city of Nyssa said, "He served his country and he served with dignity, as far as I can tell. We've examined the record thoroughly." Shuster also served in the U.S. Spe- cial Forces.
