Lie: an untrue statement intended to deceive. Liar: one who tells lies. The Capps campaign ran a TV ad in which they edited a statement by Chris Mitchum to make it sound as if he would not go to Washington to represent the 24th District. They intentionally omitted the remainder of his statements and ran the ad to mislead the public into thinking Mitchum said exactly the opposite of what he actually said. The ad was aired late in the campaign so Mitchum would not have the opportunity to rebut.
Consider the ethics of the liars who concocted this contemptible filth. Then consider the ethics of our now re-elected Democrat representative Lois Capps who stated her name and that she “approved of this message.” Since the ad is a blatant lie, my question to you, Lois, is what does that make you? Must you resort to lies and distortion to win your re-election, and if so why? You are the best example of what is wrong with Congress and politicians in general. Senators and congressmen/congresswomen once were referred to as “honorable.” Is there anyone out there who would call a stunt like this honorable?
The following is for your benefit, congresswoman: Ethics: the basic principles of right action, especially with reference to a particular person, profession, etc. If this is the caliber of representation our district has, then I, for one, am unrepresented in this Congress. I’ll be smoked alive if I’ll quietly accept despicable actions such as this. Shame on you, Lois Capps! Shame on your campaign people! Shame on the TV stations that aired this preposterous lie, and shame on the Democratic Party for condoning such deceitfulness (look this preceding word up yourself, Lois).
God help this country from the people we elect and those who vote them in.
