50 Reasons Voters Don’t Want the Same Old Gard

#48 – Gard Spread Lies About Drilling

MADISON – After being rejected by voters in 2006, career politician John Gard is running for the 8th Congressional District seat again on his same old extreme record with his same old unethical behavior.  The hard-working families of northeast Wisconsin do not share his extreme values, and that’s why this Bush-Cheney Republican will lose again.

During the 50 days leading up to the general election on November 4, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin will list 50 reasons why voters should reject the same old failed leadership and same old out-of-touch agenda of Republican candidate John Gard – and send Democrat Steve Kagen back to our nation’s capital to represent northeast Wisconsin for a second term.

Reason #48

John Gard is already lying. No more than a few months into his campaign, Gard knowingly spread lies about Chinese-Cuba oil drilling off the coast of Florida. Even after Vice President Dick Cheney retracted a related claim, Gard continues to support a similar false claim on his campaign’s Web site, fliers and TV ads. He has also lied about Congressman Steve Kagen, saying he is opposed to drilling. (Source: Gardforcongress.com)
