Both candidates for the Democratic slot on the gubernatorial ballot overplay their hands.
Democrat Bob Menendez inaccurately portrays Republican Tom Kean as “getting around” a law that doesn’t even apply to him.
The Free Enterprise Fund continues a campaign of misinformation against the estate tax.
A Democratic candidate for governor accuses a primary opponent of voting against a popular measure … before she was even elected to the legislature.
A Paris Hilton impersonator says it would be “awesome” to repeal the estate tax, while an anti-tax group calls the tax “cruel and unfair.”
The Competitive Enterprise Institute runs ads saying “The Antarctic ice sheet is getting thicker.” A professor objects, saying CEI deliberately misrepresents his research.
Both parties are panned for their attack-ad tactics. A preview of October?
Republican Brian Bilbray accuses Democrat Francine Busby of supporting “amnesty” for illegal aliens. What does that mean?
Republicans aimed more distorted attacks at Democrat Francine Busby in the June 6 special House election to fill the seat vacated by convicted GOP congressman Randy “Duke” Cunningham, who resigned after pleading guilty to accepting bribes.
A National Republican Congressional Committee ad misleads viewers by saying Busby “could bring back the death tax,” when in fact she has publicly supported permanent repeal of the federal estate tax for years, a fact known to Republican opposition researchers.
Their ad mischaracterizes a quotation from his book and gives a one-sided description of his obstetrical malpractice bill.
