Extreme-ist Makeover: Guinta Edition
Frank Guinta Cannot be Trusted to Represent New Hampshire
NEW HAMPSHIRE – A week and a half to go before Granite Staters hit the voting booths, Frank Guinta continues to demonstrate that he is a politician that cannot be trusted. In an interview with the Concord Monitor Editorial Board, Mr. Guinta said we should eliminate the Department of Energy, the Department of Education, and abolish the United Nations. As the Monitor noted, the Department of Energy, “maintains the country's stockpile of nuclear weapons and contains a regulatory agency to oversee the energy industry.”
Earlier this week, Mr. Guinta said that he does not believe that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) should monitor our food. The FDA is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety of our nation's food supply.
“Frank Guinta represents the extreme views of Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, and not those of independent-minded New Hampshire voters,” said Shea-Porter spokeswoman Jamie Radice. “Mr. Guinta wants to ban abortion in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother, wants to mandate the teaching of creationism in public schools, eliminate the Departments of Energy and Education, and abolish the United Nations. He even wants to oust our nation’s food inspectors who make sure the food on our shelves is safe. Whether it’s lying about his presence at a violent bar brawl, refusing to answer questions about the slush fund he is using to finance his campaign, or threatening to abolish critical programs that help keep us safe, Frank Guinta has consistently demonstrated that he cannot be trusted to represent Granite Staters. Mr. Guinta’s views are dangerous for New Hampshire workers and families, and voters are going to reject him and his ideas.”
