|Idaho Falls, ID – Yesterday, while Congressman Mike Simpson was addressing a group of Idahoans he denied voting to fund ACORN. He claimed that the attacks on him are “misleading.” According to the Washington Post and Factcheck.org, Simpson’s attacks are the ones being called, “false and misleading,” to Idaho voters.
The Idaho State Journal reported, “Simpson did address some of those statements, which he says are misleading, on Wednesday. For instance, he pointed to comments that he was one of three Republicans in the House who voted to continue to fund ACORN.”
It is an indisputable fact that Simpson was one of only three Republicans in 2011 to vote to fund the radical liberal and corrupt group, ACORN. The American Spectator in 2011 reported,” Only three Republican lawmakers voted to keep ACORN eligible for funding. They were Robert Aderholt (R-Alabama), Mike Simpson (R-Idaho), and Paul Gosar (R-Arizona).”
“The Smith campaign has been setting the record straight because Congressman Simpson seems to forget his record quite often. Bryan Smith would not waste Idahoan’s tax dollars on liberal, corrupt groups like ACORN. Unlike Simpson, Bryan Smith will fight for smaller government, less spending and no new tax increases,” says Smith campaign manager, Carrie Brown.
Bryan Smith is a conservative Republican running for Idaho’s second congressional district. He is running against 16-year incumbent and big spending, career politician Mike Simpson. Bryan has been endorsed by the Club for Growth, Senate Conservatives Fund, the Madison Project, Citizens United, National Assoc. of Gun Rights and Freedomworks. Bryan and his wife live in Idaho Falls.
