NHGOP - FACT CHECK: "People For The American Way's" Dishonest Attack on Senator Sununu

CONCORD – In an attempt to mislead New Hampshire voters, the liberal special interest group, People for the American Way released an ad this week targeting Senator John Sununu. This left-wing special interest group should know that New Hampshire voters do not welcome their dishonest attacks.

“This latest attempt by Jeanne Shaheen and her liberal front groups to distort the facts and mislead New Hampshire voters once again underscores just how out of touch she is,” said Fergus Cullen, Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party.

“New Hampshire voters will see right through these false attacks because they know the record shows that Senator Sununu is an independent voice for New Hampshire.”


MYTH: A Recent Ad Sponsored By The People For The American Way Implies That Senator Sununu Opposes Efforts To End Work Place Discrimination.

FACT: Senator John Sununu Was One Of Only 6 Republicans In The Senate To Vote For Cloture For The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act Of 2007 Which Reverses The Supreme Court's Decision And Ensures That Enforcement Against Discrimination In The Workplace Cannot Be Time Limited.
