Markey ‘hiding’ from D.C. controversies, Gomez alleges

After days of tough questioning, Republican Gabriel E. Gomez went after his Democratic rival for US Senate, saying US Representative Edward M. Markey has been absent from the campaign trail and “hiding” from the controversies roiling the Democratic administration in Washington, D.C.

“We’re in the midst of probably the worst scandals of a lifetime down in D.C.,” Gomez said, citing the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups for audits, the Justice Department’s seizure of media phone records and the administration’s conflicting reports on Benghazi.
