Once again, we have been subjected to the mudslinging in the Congressional race here in Western Tennessee. This time, by the Democratic nominee Roy Herron. He is another typical Pelosi style Democrat, resorting to lies and mudslinging in order to advance his cause.
Herron knows better than to run on his record, or his positions because anyone who knows anything about the political climate this year, knows you have to run as a conservative, whether you be one or not, i.e., Senator John McCain is back to being a conservative again. But Herron cannot run as a conservative, or a democrat, or what he is, a socialist liberal. So his best bet is to sling mud and lie about Stephen Fincher.
Which is really odd since I was given a book by Herron this past weekend on the fact that he is a Christian and why it is OK for Christians to get into politics. Never mind the fact that it is not OK for Christians to get into politics and lie about their opponents. No, the ends do not justify the means. All the accusations against Fincher by Herron have been cleared by Factcheck.com
The mudslinging really gets old.
A dear friend wrote the following letter because she has become so concerned about it.
Early voting begins October 15. Please listen to the Truth about Stephen Fincher. Also, please pass this on to your friends. Lies are being told about Stephen and the truth needs to get out quickly.
First of all the $250,000 is a loan from a bank for the campaign. The loan is legal. Stephen got it legally from a local bank that he has done business with for years. The FEC rules are long, but the general guideline is this : the loan is legal if the institution in question would give the loan if the person (Stephen) wasn’t running for office. Stephen has good credit at the bank and has for many years–they were happy to offer the loan.
As for Stephen’s assets, Herron is doing what career politicians do : distoring the facts and spreading lies. The House form, which all candidates fill out, requires you to list assets, but there are many exclusions to this form. For example your home, among many other assets, is excluded. So they are attacking Stephen for not listing all his assets, when the form instructs you not to list everything. They are doing this because most people don’t know all these rules. They are trying to distract voters from the issues. Herron is trying to shift the focus away from his liberal stances on the issues and his 24 year voting record that proves it.This has been not talked about for Stephen is focused on the high unemployment rate and repealing the health care bill rather than playing politics.
Stephen has answered all these questions but the media has not been reporting it. So, we must do what the media is not doing–TELL THE TRUTH!!!
Also, remember to VOTE!!
I hope we seen Roy packing, and elect Stephen Fincher. Enough of the mudslinging.
