Congressman Kuhl has a new advertisement that is running in parts of the district. The ad centers on Mr. Kuhl’s assertion that if elected, Eric Massa will raise your taxes.
The Elmira television station, WETM, ran a local news story yesterday that takes a look at this particular ad: Truth Squad on Kuhl-Massa Ad
… We had our political expert Dr. Stephen Coleman take a closer look at the ad. The ad cites two different websites where Kuhl got his information that Massa wants to raise taxes. Dr. Coleman says one website is purely a blog and not anything official from Massa. The other is the commerce department website. But Coleman says finding anything on that site is like finding a needle in a haystack He says the ad needed to give more information on exactly where Kuhl found the information. “He doesn’t want to do that, wants tax reform, Kuhl camp is attributing it to mean Massa wants higher taxes. That interpretation is from the political twilight zone,” said Dr. Stephen Coleman, WETM TV Political Expert.
If you were unable to listen to Eric Massa on the Ed Shultz show yesterday, here is a link where you can listen to Mr. Massa’s segment.
A debate is being held tonight in Elmira and will be broadcast in the local area. I’m hoping that WETM will upload the program to their website so that those of us who are interested in viewing will be able to do so. I will provide a link if this happens.
