New Hampshire- Congressman Frank Guinta has had quite the week, trying to trick voters and the press. He sent out a massive robo-call and told voters he was just a candidate running against Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, so he could trick them and escape blame for his broken Congress. The Concord Monitor noticed and wrote about his action. He told voters he was a candidate running against Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, and the Concord Monitor called him out on it. He sent out an Op-Ed to the press and voters, proclaiming that Congress shouldn't go on vacation while there are so many dire issues to settle, then actually voted that very day to go on recess for more than a month, even though 78 Republicans and every Democrat voted to stay and serve. Voters caught Frank and it became bad news for him. Frank Guinta also once again tried to mislead the press and the public with a press release claiming Carol Shea-Porter has a Super PAC, when he knows full well that this Super PAC was established by a business called Credo. And why is Credo doing this? Credo wants Congressman Guinta out because he is one of the 14 most corrupt members of Congress, according to the nonpartisan organization CREW (Citizens for Responsible Ethics in Washington). He probably should not have drawn attention to his corruption issue. All in all, a rough week.
Naomi Andrews, Campaign Manager for Candidate Carol Shea-Porter, released the following statement:"My advice to Congressman Guinta is this: If you don't want to have another terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week, you need to stop trying to trick the voters and the press. They are watching."
