Guest Post: False Accusations from Eric Cantor’s Campaign

Guest Post

As the June 10th 7th District Republican Primary nears, increased false accusations from Eric Cantor’s campaign show far more desperation than confidence. Going to both the Dave Brat and Eric Cantor websites, one or two differences stand out. First, only Brat actually lists numerous issues and his positions on those issues. Second, only Brat’s website details Cantor’s voting record. But hey, Cantor’s site has a great photo gallery.

What Brat’s site, and my own research, has taught me is that Cantor has lied about Brat’s political passions – which are far from liberal. Cantor set up a fake “fact-checking” website to deceitfully reinforce his false – and lazy – “liberal professor” label for Brat. Now, ever-desperate and shameless, Cantor is declaring that Brat will cut SSI benefits to seniors. Strategically choosing an issue not listed on Brat’s site, and still omitting ALL issues from his own site, Cantor lashes out again. Using an incumbent-sized war chest, Cantor has spent $1 million thus far, and has another million with which to saturate the “market” with more untruths about his comparatively cashless primary opponent.

Why the lies, the fake website, and the heavy-handed use of the word “conservative” to describe himself this time around? Why frighten seniors with fabrications regarding the intentions of his opponent, all the while refusing to remind voters of all ages that he voted 10 times to raise this nation’s debt ceiling? Is he willing to debate Mr. Brat? No. Did he alter legislation to allow family members of politicians to leverage insider information in the securities markets? Oh, yes, he really did.

The greatest threat to keeping our promises to seniors is the cynical, career political player. He can raise the debt limit ten times, and then deftly stress debt reduction at election time. He can saddle our grandchildren with unbearable fiscal shortfalls, and falsely paint a conservative economist – a decent man – with whatever label is necessary to insure a political WIN, for himself. As a Virginian senior, I’ve lived too long sit by and watch a well-heeled hustler outspend, out-lie, and out-politicize an honest, conservative candidate. What of you, fellow Virginian?

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
