Union Leader Calls Out Hodes’ Smears
The Union Leader today joined growing condemnation of Paul Hodes’ misleading attack ad against Kelly.
As you may have heard, last week the independent watchdog FactCheck.org declared Hodes’ TV ad “false.” And Foster’s Daily Democrat dismissed it as “nasty” and suggested the Congressman “take an antibiotic and hot shower to wash away political dirt.”
Well, today the Union Leader called Hodes’ spot “blatantly false” and said he should be ashamed of himself.
“Rep. Paul Hodes should be ashamed of himself. He'd have to have a sense of shame, though, to do that. His blatantly false attacks against his leading rival for the U.S. Senate, former Attorney General Kelly Ayotte, show that he hasn't one.
“In a TV ad, Hodes issues this outrageous lie about Ayotte: ‘Two days before she resigned, she made sure her e-mail would be erased.’ The exact opposite is true. Most of her e-mails were saved, and she asked that they all be made public.” Click here to read the entire editorial.
Hodes’ attempts to distort Kelly’s record aren’t passing the smell test – and it’s clear that outside observers won’t let him get away with spreading his lies.
One thing that’s clear is this: Hodes’ attacks on Kelly confirm that she is the one candidate he doesn’t want to run against this fall.
