Harley Rouda fired an employee after receiving cancer treatment because of health care cost

WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today released a new ad, “Wrongful Termination,” in California’s 48th Congressional District. The ad details a female employee’s lawsuit against Harley Rouda’s real estate company for firing her after she received cancer treatment because her costs were too high. The ad will run on television in the Los Angeles media market and on digital platforms throughout the district.

“Shady Harley Rouda puts himself first, even firing a female employee after she received cancer treatment because her health care costs were too high,” said Michael Byerly, CLF spokesman. “After losing a lawsuit, Rouda’s business was ordered to pay the woman nearly $2 million. Californians deserve better than Harley Rouda.”
