Who is behind the political attack ads?

 

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

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. Just click on the donation button above or send a check to Cabarrus Conservative Alliance PAC, 705 Mooresville Rd., Suite 103, Kannapolis, NC 28081. We are required to gather the following information from all contributors contributing over $50, the full name of the contributor, the address, employer and occupational information.

OUCH! Harrisburg is not Fischer or Newton Country.

OUCH! Harrisburg is not Fischer or Newton country. While Hillary Clinton only had 6 people to greet her in Texas yesterday Michael Fischer and Paul Newton were able to one up her! They had 7 community members show up for their event.

Cabarrus Jobs Now hosted a Meet and Greet event for NC House District 82 candidate Michael Fischer and NC Senate District 36 candidate Paul Newton Thursday evening at the Harrisburg Town Hall Community Room. If turnout is any indication of how Harrisburg feels about these two candidates their time in the political spot light may be short lived. The event hosts outnumbered the community attendees with only 7 members of the community taking advantage of the event and hearing from the candidates.

Founders of the group who has become known as the “Liars Club of Cabarrus County politics” Cabarrus Jobs Now, Diane Honeycutt (Current Cabarrus County Commission Vice Chariman) and Steve Morris (Current Cabarrus County Commission Chariman) were there.

In addition the City Council of Harrisburg was well represented with Mayor Pro Tem Benita Conrad, Chad Baucom and Chris Barfield making up a portion of those in attendance. Chad Baucom welcomed everyone and introduced the candidates while also offering several questions to the candidates during the Q & A portion of the event.

What seemed to be extremely telling was the fact that there was a total of only 18 people in attendance and of that number only 7 were members of the community at large.

This would lead some to question the viability of both Mr. Fischer and Mr. Newton as serious contenders for the NC House District 82 and NC Senate District 36 seats.

In addition it may be a very telling sign that the citizens of Cabarrus County and Harrisburg do not buy the lies told by Cabarrus Jobs Now in the last County Commissioner election and that they are not interested in any candidates that this group of liars would support and endorse for any office.

Fool Me Once!
Fool Me Once!

What’s the old adage? “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” It looks like Cabarrus County voters have seen the lies and are not going to fall for them a second time.

It’s very unfortunate that some people, some rather prominent people of Cabarrus County have been fooled by the “Liars Club of Cabarrus County”, Cabarrus Jobs Now! The list of Hosts for this event read like a list of Who’s Who among Cabarrus County Business people.

We would hope that many of these “Hosts & Supporters” have been led astray by the Liars Club of Cabarrus County Politics and that once they are made aware of whom it is that makes up this group and what the history of this group is, they will quickly and publicly renounce their “Support”.

We believe the voters are smart enough to discern for themselves the difference between a truly Conservative candidate and these fakes who only talk about being Conservative, who only talk about representing the voters when in fact they will be representing either special interests like CJN, big business (like Duke Energy) or are working to further their own political careers. The alternative being those representatives who truly seek to represent the voters of Cabarrus County and work to protect our rights and to help make Cabarrus County a great place to live, work and raise our families.

The Campaign Lies Begin Early in Cabarrus County

Well that didn’t take long! On day one of the 2016 registration for candidates Michael Fischer, who is supported by the Cabarrus Jobs Now organizers whom you should remember were proven to have sent out printed lies in the last Cabarrus County Commissioners race has kicked off his campaign by spreading lies. Specifically, in this article from the Independent Tribune, December 1, 2015 Michael Fischer made this statement…

“Tuesday Fischer said the $100,000 figure was not accurate. “We’ll raise whatever is necessary to run a competitive successful campaign.”

That statement was in response to the following:

In October, Pittman wrote a letter to the editor stating that Fischer’s supporters, Cabarrus Jobs Now, were trying to raise $100,000 to unseat him. He said the most he had ever raised for a campaign was $40,000 in 2014 and he didn’t spend all of that.

Also for the record here is the letter which Rep. Pittman was referring to. Please pay close attention to the last paragraph.

MichaelFischer letter-smIt clearly states “Michael needs to raise $100,000 before the end of the year… now notice the rest of that sentence about making the race competitive and getting his message out. By now we should all know what that message will be… MORE LIES, just like those put out by the CJN group in the last Cabarrus County Commissioners race.
Here are a couple of reminders in case you forgot about those lies….

Now in addition to this, you may be asking yourselves why would a successful young attorney with a prestigious law firm in Charlotte decide to take time away from a lucrative six figure career to go to Raleigh for a job that pays less than 1/3 that amount? We will let you answer that question for yourselves.

More importantly we should be asking who is funding him and why?

Look no further than the above letter signed by several of the organizers of the Progressive group Cabarrus Jobs Now. Current Cabarrus County Commissioner Diane Honeycutt, Cyndie Mynatt, daughter of current Commissioner Grace Mynatt, and Hotel Chain owner Doug Stafford.

One would ponder just why are these and a few other influential business people, some who are actually registered Democrats of Cabarrus county supporting Michael Fischer to oppose Representative Larry Pittman who has a very conservative record?

Representative Pittman has shown that he consistently stands strong in support of the voters of Cabarrus County against corruption and waste in Raleigh and has actively worked to help our Teachers, Highway Patrol, and Retired state workers. A representative who has fought tirelessly for our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms (2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution) a man who took the lead in fighting to remove Common Core from our Educational System and who continues to work to reduce the size and intrusion of government into our daily lives and our pocket books.

We must wonder if Mr. Fischer is so willing to saddle up with those who would out and out lie about these things, just what would he be willing to do if he were allowed to go to Raleigh and collude with the corrupt politicians who have taken over the Republican majority as reported in this article by the DailyHaymaker?

The choice is yours, whom do you want representing you in Raleigh? A proven Constitutionally Conservative and honorable man Larry Pittman, or another lawyer supported by an organization which has been proven to be corrupt and willing to outright lie to get their chosen person elected?

Isn’t it time we let our voices be heard and our values properly represented by those whom we elect and send to office on our behalf? Shouldn’t we demand honesty and integrity from our elected representatives? If the answer to these questions is YES then your choice for NC House District 82 Representative should be glaringly clear.
