Parsons paying for attack ads against former employee’s competition for Governor.
GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons is lending a helping hand to his former employee Christine Jones.
Jones, who was GoDaddy’s general counsel, is now running for governor of Arizona.
Parsons said he has already spent $1M funding Better Leaders for Arizona, which is running attack ads against competitor Doug Ducey. He might spend more.
Parsons’ role in the ads was suspected after one of the ads was connected to a marketing and advertising firm he purchased.
According to AZCentral, Parsons decided to out his funding after Ducey attacked Jones during a debate as “a line employee at GoDaddy with no leadership experience.”
Say what you want about Jones’ tenure at GoDaddy, but she certainly wasn’t just a line employee.
