The Empty Suit's Edifice of Lies
Josh "The Empty Suit" Mandel gets up in the morning and, as sure as the sun rises in the east, he starts to lie. And lie. And lie and lie and lie some more. He's probably got less honesty and integrity than any candidate who has run for office in Ohio in recent memory — and that is really saying something, given the slate of inferior beings the GOP ran in 2010.
He's apparently trying hard to set some kind of world record for how many times he can snag a coveted "pants on fire" rating from the Plain Dealer's PolitiFact feature during his U.S. Senate campaign. The paper must be tearing its hair out at how they're going to appear "balanced" in this race considering that, as factcheck.org found, Mandel's campaign has been lying its ass off and Senator Sherrod Brown's has been telling the truth about Mandel — between touting Brown's considerable accomplishments and lengthening list of support groups.
A current Mandel ad makes the laughable claim that Brown voted to "give huge bonuses to executives." Of course he didn't. That's a GOP thing; it's what Mandel is probably currently conniving to do if he gets elected, since it's those wealthy executives bankrolling HIS campaign, not Brown's.
Alas for Mandel:
Brown did vote for the final version of the stimulus bill. But to label the stimulus bill as a vote to give "huge bonuses to executives" isn’t just inaccurate and misleading, it’s ridiculous.
Brown, in fact, had voted to ban all bonuses, but that ban was loosened in House-Senate negotiations before the final version was enacted.
You know what else is ridiculous? The very idea that Josh Mandel is qualified to hold any elected office. And if you'd like to prevent him from moving up to one he's even LESS qualified for, here's where to go:
