Nebraska Democrats, currently under Vince Powers, and soon to be under Jane Kleeb, sent out this mailer to 2nd District voters:
Now you don’t need Leavenworth St. to tell you that Planned Parenthood does NOT provide mammograms.
You can let Washington Post spell it out:
“Supporters have continued to assert that Planned Parenthood offers mammograms even though it has been debunked for years.”
They even chastised President Obama for suggesting this:
“President Obama asserted that women ‘rely’ on the organization for mammograms or that it ‘provides’ mammograms. Obama received Three Pinocchios for repeatedly using misleading words, which suggested an intentional attempt to mislead voters about Planned Parenthood’s services.”
So beyond lying to Nebraska voters, what the NDP is really trying to do is tell you that retired Brigadier General Don Bacon doesn’t care about women’s health.
Which is a disgusting, desperate last minute tactic.
Let Bacon tell you himself:
“The importance of preventative care is an issue that my family and I care deeply about.
I lost my sister Beth to breast cancer when she was just 39 years old.
Not only was she a wonderful sister, but she also introduced Angie and I, and was the maid of honor at our wedding. Her loss was the most heart breaking event in my family’s life, and ten years later I still mourn her passing.
Earlier screenings and care could have saved her life and I want to prevent the tragedy that struck our family from happening to others.”
But this is just chortle-chortle ha-ha stuff perpetrated by the Democrats and endorsed by Brad Ashford.
This is the kind of crap the Democrats should be ashamed of.
This goes beyond “politics.”
Just be clear: This is the person who Brad Ashford has voted for TWICE for Speaker of the House of Representatives:
Funny, because just a few weeks ago she called Comey a “great man,” and said,
“We are very privileged in our country to have him be director of the FBI.”
Hey, but Brad only supports her nearly 80% of the time, so that’s just barely over half right?
Luck of the Irish
In the meantime, Don Bacon continues to have Congressional leaders in supporting his candidacy.
Tomorrow (Thursday), House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy will be in Omaha (at the Bacon HQ – 3pm) to show his support for the Bacon campaign.
This kind of support — Mike Pence, Paul Ryan, McCarthy, polls going your way and national prognosticators trending your way — is exactly what you want at the even of the election.
And exciting race for the 2nd.
Because that’s how YOU keep up with the talk of Nebraska politics!
