Earlier this week candidate for the Republican nomination in the 10th district, Shak Hill, was accused of writing some disgusting posts on a website. To anyone with more than 3 brain cells, it was obvious Hill had not written the articles. It was an aggregator that put up 3 bad posts out of thousands that appeared on the website. Unfortunately, Hill overlooked those 3 ridiculous blog posts that clearly weren’t written by him. On Thursday Hill responded:
Make no mistake: people are hurting.
Families can’t make ends meet, they’re being crushed by outrageously high premiums, worried about their healthcare because of Obamacare’s collapse, and they’re worried about taxes that some are promising to raise to pay for our $20 trillion national debt.
People are hurting. And I need your help to address their needs!
Our Congresswoman, however, doesn’t want to talk about these things.
Could the reason why, be that she voted to cause them- with repeated spending hikes and her vote to keep Obamacare?
That’s my theory. If I had her voting record, I’d want to talk about ANYTHING else other than the issues.
Instead of talking about the issues, apparently this week Congresswoman Barbara Comstock has been peddling false stories about me to a 3rd rate reporter at a 4th rate newspaper. Sad.
So, in honor of Barbara’s apparent desire to go delving into the past, let’s have a #TBT (Throwback Thursday)…. Back to before she was an elected official, shall we?
It turns out that, before she was an elected official, Barbara’s work was making the swamp…. Swampier.
You see, before Barbara Comstock was voting to keep Obamacare, she owned a firm that specialized in defending scandal-ridden politicians. Defending scandal and doing opposition research. Unfortunately, typical DC slime.
She was the head of President Bush’s opposition research team during the 2000 election. As it happens, Barbara Comstock has literally been slinging mud for years, even while I was still flying combat missions. That’s what we expected her to do.
What’s the next ‘salacious’ charge to come from Team Comstock? That I am conspiring to tear down trees (I run a publishing company)? That I am anti-business because I want to defund Planned Parenthood?
If you want to know anything about me, just ask. I’m no corrupt DC politician. I’m a decent family man, faithfully married 28 years to my wife Robin, and a father of six. I’m an Air Force Veteran, a former combat pilot, and a former elected official. I’ve started several businesses, and I’ve even been a foster father to 46 children.
And unlike Congresswoman Comstock, I have never once lied to the voters of this district, nor tried to distract anyone from the issues by slinging mud.
So let this #TBT serve as a reminder that perhaps those in glass houses might consider not throwing stones…. and what REALLY matters are the issues and the votes that affect the hardworking families of the 10th Congressional District.
If you agree with me that keeping promises matters more than throwing slime, I need your help.
Your donation of $20.18 will send Barbara Comstock and her slime-throwing swamp creatures a message: Bring it on.
She can throw her mud. I’ll be talking about repealing Obamacare, supporting our military, holding town halls, and keeping my promises to the good people of our District.
Let’s get this done and change DC!
