Cabarrus Jobs Now has mounted an enormous and costly effort to discredit a true Statesman, gentleman and champion of Conservatism in the person of NC House District 82 Representative Larry Pittman.
As reported by Nationally acclaimed blogger Lady Liberty 1885 they are broadcasting an attack advertisement on Time Warner Cable across Cabarrus County’s 82nd House District which as of the latest information available has cost them over $71,000.00.
We have done some fact checking on the allegations they raise in this ad and find once again that they are telling out and out lies about Rep. Pittman’s record in the NC House.
Rep. Pittman has and continues to be ranked among the most conservative members of the house as evidenced by Civitas ranking as the 13th most Conservative member in 2013 and the most Conservative member in 2014.
In addition Grass Roots North Carolina has ranked him 4 stars (their highest rating) as the most gun friendly Representative) for the entire time he has been in the House.
Partners for Educational Freedom recently sent out a mailer acknowledging his efforts and thanking him for “Giving parents the power to choose the school that works best for their children.”
He was instrumental in the passage of House Bill 371 which will allow designated members of the National Guard to carry concealed weapons in public facilities such as recruiting centers and armories and was recognized by Maj. Gen. Gregory A. Lusk, adjutant general of North Carolina National Guard who presented him with “THE NORTH CAROLINA NATIONAL GUARD CIVILIAN COMMENDATION MEDAL” in August 2015.
There are numerous other examples we could mention here but suffice to say the indicated attack ad is totally false and is intended to do nothing but cast aspersions on a hard working Constitution supporting Conservative who puts the needs of the voters first and stands up to the corruption, waste and cronyism that is found both in Raleigh and right here in good ole Cabarrus County.
So you might be thinking who are the people and businesses who are contributing to the lies being spread by Cabarrus Jobs Now or as we lovingly refer to them the “Liars Club of Cabarrus County politics?” Below we have listed a few of the top contributors as reported by CampaignMoney.com
And just for the record if you are wondering who the founding members of this group are, the Concord Independent Tribune reports …..
Now just what are we going to do about this?
We would like to suggest that it might be interesting and worth your time to inquire of these business owners and private donors why they would be supporting such an organization as Cabarrus Jobs Now?
Ask them if they are aware of how this organization is spending their donations and if they support these deceitful tactics?
Ask them if they are comfortable with their name being directly linked to an organization who has repeatedly put out television attack ads and mailers that were blatant lies against good people.
Then we encourage you to post your findings back here in the comments section. It might be an interesting conversation to say the least and many of these donors might not even know what is being done with their money.
In addition if you feel these deceitful tactics should be countered we ask you to make a generous donation to Cabarrus Conservative Alliance so that we may continue our work of exposing these dirty political activities and to once again restore truth and honesty in the election of our representatives here in Cabarrus County and all of North Carolina.
