The Globe and Wicked Local have stories today about Republican Congressional candidate Sean Bielat’s decision not to disclose his current employer.

From Chloe Gotsis’ report:

“You are not electable in this district unless you talk about who you work for. You have a transparency problem that needs to be resolved,” said [opponent Elizabeth] Childs, a practicing psychiatrist. “There is no candidate for higher office, who was successful, who was not open.”

and this…

“Small business startups are private,” Bielat said, adding that it’s his favorite of Childs’ attacks against him. “We aren’t going to publicize the name of the business because I don’t want it associated with me. As soon as it becomes associated with Bielat for Congress it becomes a conservative platform.”

Does this matter?
