In light of the discussions on cleaning up politics and ending hate-based campaigning, I want to share a video my opponent is distributing.
Video: The Principled Legislator
She is now accusing me of using “half-truths,” “untruths” “and misleading the public.” Those are her words, not mine. She has called me a liar on multiple occasions throughout the last few weeks as I have questioned her (an elected official’s) public voting record.
My opponent publicly claimed “I voted YES” on Sunday Sales. Her floor vote was NO. She claimed in print and at the Republican Party debate that her changed vote counted. Then yesterday in the AJC she acknowledged that her vote DOESN’T count.
She accuses me of lying. She accuses me of misleading. She never explains what I’m lying about or how I am misleading. I was taught that all a man truly has is his word. I refuse to allow my Representative to call my honor into question for political expediency. I am holding an elected official accountable for their voting record, as all citizens should.
Please stand with me as Representative Byrd tries to undermine my reputation in order to avoid questions regarding the one true, fair measure of an elected official: the voting record.
