I find outside political groups influence on the 4th District race disingenuous. If Mr. Didier had backbone, he would denounce Freedom Works For America attacks on Mr. Newhouse calling him a “liberal wolf.” This is absurd and down right character assassination. It has no business in civil discourse. If anything, Newhouse’s appointment to work for our state by a Democrat shows his ability to get things done.
Freedom Works For America should do their homework and they might discover their candidate, Mr. Didier, according to the Environmental Working Group’s database on farm subsidies, took over $250,000 in taxpayer dollars.
I hope Mr. Didier knows campaign law and that “coordination” with these opaque groups is illegal — funny how his picture and endorsement runs simultaneously with these negative ads. I believe this a sign of desperation — calling Newhouse, a conservative endorsed by the NRA , a “liberal wolf,” is reaching, and shows that freedom of speech for these outside groups does not mean “freedom from stupidity.” Again, I call on Mr. Didier to publically denounce this attack and let civil discourse decide the campaign based on experience and background. Our district deserves better than outside shadow groups running lies about candidates.
Never miss a local story.
