Brown For Governor Campaign
OAKLAND - Shining a spotlight on Meg Whitman's campaign of attacks, double-talk and dishonesty, the Jerry Brown for Governor Campaign today released a new television ad to set the record straight on the billionaire's lies about her voting record, California residency, insider stock deals, employee abuse and position on immigration.
"When billionaire Meg Whitman has faced tough questions about her record, her actions and her stances, rather than coming clean and telling voters the truth, she has ducked and dodged, lied and deceived," said Brown for Governor Campaign Manager Steven Glazer. "If Meg Whitman can't be truthful about her own record on the campaign trail, how can we trust her to honestly communicate with the people of California as Governor?"
The Brown Campaign's television ad is currently airing statewide. The ad highlights the lies, double-talk and distortion that have become the hallmark of Meg Whitman's campaign. She has:
-Lied about her voting record
-Stretched the truth about how long she has lived in California
-Dodged questions about her insider stock deals at Goldman Sachs
-Changed her story about a physical altercation with an eBay employee
-Talked out of both sides of her mouth on immigration
-Aired false and misleading ads against Jerry Brown
The ad concludes with a quote from Whitman's hometown newspaper, the San Jose Mercury News, stating that she has demonstrated a "loose relationship with the truth."
You know it's bad when the press asks if you'd take a lie detector test.
Meg Whitman didn't tell the truth about not voting or about how long she lived in California. She got caught in insider deals at Goldman Sachs. She changed her story about physically abusing an employee. She campaigned as tough as nails on immigration knowing her housekeeper of nine years was undocumented.
Her TV ads have been condemned as false and misleading. And even her hometown newspaper said Meg Whitman has demonstrated a "loose relationship with the truth."
