Tiahrt is continuing the immigration tit-for-tat against Jerry Moran with a new TV ad.
“Though Congressman Moran continues to try and distract from his appalling record on taxes and illegal immigration, we believe the voters deserve the truth,” said Michelle Schroeder, spokesperson for the Tiahrt campaign. “The facts are clear – Congressman Moran has voted to allow illegal immigrants access to taxpayer-funded health care, and he voted for the tax increase to fund it. Congressman Moran has also voted for amnesty and opposed additional funding for customs and border protection, including funds to build the fence.”
“Congressman Moran’s record of supporting tax increases is lengthy, but his refusal to be truthful with Kansans about his votes to protect illegal immigrants is utterly disappointing. Congressman Moran continues to try to have it both ways; he supports tax increases and votes with Nancy Pelosi to block the 2003 Bush tax cuts, then comes back to Kansas and tries to convince Republican voters he is a conservative.”
This is, of course, coupled with a new Moran Mythbuster.
