The Sierra Club’s smear ad against Tim Walberg (R-MI) is so over the top you’d think it was a spoof. Environmentalists claim Walberg and other Republicans are trying to weaken the Clean Air Act. Essentially the ad calls Walberg a baby killer.
Walberg’s office released a statement responding to the ad and said Walberg believes regulations should be reviewed to determine their impact on jobs, energy prices, manufacturing and global competition.
“Despite this smear ad, Tim Walberg will continue working to protect American jobs and citizens, move our nation toward energy independence and ensure responsible environmental protections,” Walberg’s Chief of Staff, Joe Wicks, said in a statement. “Tim Walberg is working to protect the quality of the environment without chasing jobs out of Michigan.”
A pretty mild reply but I suppose there’s really no adequate response. It’s pointless to refer to the Tucson civility lecture again.
This really sets a new low but I’m sure the Lib/Dem smear machine will go into overdrive to exceed it. Edward McClelland of NBC Chicago, are you doing your homework? Vote For This Bill, Or A Truck Will Run Over Your Daughter
