To The Editor:
Is anyone else out there sick of watching anti-Republican political commercials funded by Political Action Committees (PACs) which are full of distortions and mistruths - particularly against Senator David Hann and Rep. Kirk Stensrud?
The same sleazy tactics used against WI Governor Scott Walker are now being used against these two public servants. It seems this election has produced an unprecedented number of negative television and radio messages attempting to convince us that so many of our Republican candidates only have a "hurt the world" agenda. Of course the only solution is to elect tax-and-spend Democrats to save us all.
Hann, Stensrud and their GOP colleagues must be doing something right, as did Scott Walker, because these PACs seem willing to go to any expense to remove them.
These same Democrats gave us the $6.2 billion dollar state budget deficit and voted in 2009-10 to take $2 billion from our schools then voted against paying it back to them in 2011. Had this same DFL majority been allowed to unite with DFL Governor "tax-the-rich" Dayton, we would all be writing much larger checks to the MN Department of Revenue each year to cover their spending. And the schools still wouldn’t be paid back the money the DFL took from them.
These PACs seem to have unlimited dollars to spend to see the return of budget-busting Democrats. We do not need a return to the fiscal mismanagement of the DFL. Please send a message to these special interests by taking notes and voting against their intended DFL beneficiaries.
Send these PACs a message with your vote - "stop trying to buy our elections with Dayton’s ex-wife’s money funding distortions and false statements."
Instead vote for the fiscally responsible party which turned the DFL deficit into a GOP Surplus. Vote Republican.
