Since it appears that this election is going to be about ethics instead of the issues I'd like to offer a few questions that must be considered when choosing a congressman:
Fact: Ron Kind has received $10,000 in donations from GARNEY HOLDING COMPANY POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE, a public works/general contractor in Kansas City.
Why would a general contractor in the state of Missouri wish to contribute that sum of money to a politician in Wisconsin? Wasn't it a contractor in Missouri who was awarded with some Mississippi River work? Could this be payback for his stimulus votes? If so, how ethical is it for a politician to be 'paid' for his vote?
Connecting more Dots on Ron Kinds Questionable Ethical Behavior
It must be campaign season because Democrats have started letter writing campaigns to distort the truth. Recent letters against Dan Kapanke are eerily similar and appear to be the result of talking points or maybe a copy/paste campaign from Party bosses who want to distract you from real issues. They will discuss anything except Ron Kind’s voting record and how his votes led to policies that are destroying economic freedom and tanking the economy.
It's no secret that I disapprove of the way that Ron Kind represents us in Washington. I have outlined many ways in which his voting record is more in line with New York liberals than with his own neighbors here in Western Wisconsin. Now, I have an idea of why that is... Campaign contributions.
It turns out that Kind is taking donations from his liberal allies in Washington. Most notably: Charlie Rangel has donated $2000 to Kind's re-election.
Given the ethical troubles that Charlie Rangel finds himself in these days will Ron Kind do the honorable thing and send that money back? Afterall, Rangel's donation was probably paid for with tainted money from his unethical activities.
A friend recently sent me an analysis of the Congressional record (attached below for your convenience). It's very interesting to see what the FACTS are about how Ron Kind actually votes. It is a stark contrast to what he and his allies TELL you. Folks, don't believe a word that Ron Kind tells you. "Trust but verify."
Would someone in the River Falls, Sparta, & Black River Falls areas please attend these meetings and ask Ron Kind how he is able to get away with deceiving voters? Is it that the media refuses to hold him accountable? Is he a Sith Lord who knows how to play mind tricks on a majority of voters? How does he do it? He told voters in Dodgeville that he hasn't taken money from Wall Street. That is not true and his campaign finance records prove that he is being deceptive about it. If you are in the River Falls, Sparta, or Black River Falls areas please attend the meetings outlined below and hold Ron Kind accountable. The "media" have failed to do their jobs. You, the voters, are our only hope.
