Deeds On Air With TV Ad Accusing McDonnell of Misrepresentation
Democrat Creigh Deeds started airing a new TV ad today in Southwest Virginia accusing Republican Bob McDonnell of mispresenting Deeds on taxes.
The ad refers to the Roanoke Times and the nonpartisian Factcheck.org, both of which have questionned a McDonnell ad claiming Deeds supports a gas tax increase and the federal cap-and -rade bill.
Deeds has said he opposes the cap and trade bill, and has never said what specific tax increase he would support.
"He's running ads fabricating numbers for proposals Creigh Deeds doesn't support,'' Deeds campaign spokesperson Jared Leopold said. "The only thing clear from this ad is that Bob McDonnell will say or do anything to get elected."
Deeds: I'm Creigh Deeds and my campaign sponsored this ad.
Narrator: The Roanoke Times called Bob McDonnell's attacks on Creigh Deeds "pure fabrication"
Factcheck.org says McDonnell's ads are not true. Deeds opposes any new energy taxes from Washington.
Bob McDonnell is out of touch with this part of Virginia.
He supports the failed economics of the past. Billions in tax breaks for the wealthy and deregulation that collapsed our economy.
And now he's running a dishonest campaign to cover it all up.
