Dirty Tactics & Sarah Palin’s Silly, Cynical Support for Issue 2

Updated
 

Greg Sargent of the Washington Post reports on a flyer being handed out in Ohio full of misinformation on Issue 2

 

If you call the bogus “Answer Line” you get:

WELCOME TO THE ISSUE 2 ANSWER LINE.  AFTER THIS MESSAGE YOU CAN SPEAK TO A REAL PERSON, BUT ONLY IF YOU CHOOSE TO.

OUR STATE LEGISLATURE RECENTLY REFORMED OHIO LAW TO PROTECT OUR PUBLIC SERVICES.  A YES VOTE ON ISSUE 2 KEEPS THIS IMPORTANT UPDATE.

A NO VOTE REPEALS THE CHANGE AND LEADS TO HIGHER TAXES AND LAYOFFS OF PUBLIC WORKERS.

More on all this tonight at 8pm ET - live from Columbus, Ohio..

 

Meanwhile, Sarah Palin has a message to all her “union brothers and sisters”: vote against your own best interests FOR Issue 2…

As a proud former union member and the wife, daughter, and sister of union members, I’m encouraging you to learn the facts about Issue 2 in Ohio.  To the hard working, patriotic, selfless union brothers and sisters in Ohio and throughout our country:  I believe that Issue 2 is needed reform.  It will help restore fairness to Ohio taxpayers and help balance the budget.

 As a former card-carrying IBEW sister married to a proud former Laborers, IBEW, and later USW member, I’m encouraging Ohioans to vote YES on Issue 2.

You see, she’s a former union sister, married to a former union brother… she’s got the street cred here. Once again, it’s time for the middle class and working Americans to sacrifice in the name of “needed reform”.
