Roberts To Gomez: Show Me Social Security Number

Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) Chairman Bradley Roberts has challenged Free National Movement (FNM) candidate for the North Abaco bye-election Greg Gomez to reveal some intimate details about his stint in the United States to prove its validity.

While appearing as a guest on Love 97’s daily talk show Issues of the Day with host Algernon Allen yesterday Mr. Roberts said he needs cold hard facts from Mr. Gomez to further prove his U.S. claims.

“It is obligatory, I understand, that in order to receive a payment as a salary, you have to have a Social Security number which is attached to everyone who is living and working legitimately in the United States,” Mr. Roberts said.

“I say to Greg Gomez, tell the Bahamian people; disclose your Social Security number so they can carry out proper diligence as to what you have been doing during your absence from The Bahamas because you seem to have a memory problem.”

In his declaration papers filed on Nomination Day last Wednesday, Mr. Gomez listed his occupation as an educator.

“It is obligatory on any political party to carry out due diligence on all of its candidates,” he said. “I can assure the Bahamian public that the Progressive Liberal Party did do that due diligence on all of our candidates,” the PLP chairman said.

“I invite them to go with any type of radar or X-ray and to check out Mr. (Renardo) Curry. He is a secure and longstanding member and resident of the North Abaco constituency. His track record is there, open for all to see. He can answer all questions.”

Despite all of the claims and criticisms, the mother of the embattled candidate said she is not at all concerned about the noise in the market and is remaining focused on the task at hand.

“I am not worrying about the criticism,” Eulamae Gomez said. “When I found out that he was running I put it all in the Lord’s hands. I told the Lord that this is his battle and I am not fighting it. I am simply depending on the Lord.”

Mr. Gomez, the PLP’s Renardo Curry and the Bahamas Constitution Party’s (BCP) Ali McIntosh will run in the bye-election on October 15.
