Site will highlight broken promises, lies and insults of the Democratic Party and its allies
The Republican Party of Minnesota today launched a new website tool to hold Democrats accountable to the truth heading into the 2014 election. The website, called TruthMattersMN.org, will focus on the broken promises, lies and insults of the Democrats and their allies both in Minnesota and in Washington, D.C.
“While a rigorous debate is part of our healthy democracy, the truth still matters,” said Keith Downey, Chairman of the Republican Party of Minnesota. “This website will hold our friends on the other side accountable for the claims they make in the public square.”
In launching the new website, Downey highlighted several posts featuring Governor Mark Dayton including his broken promise that electronic pull-tab money would pay for the Vikings stadium and a recent lie about the Democrats taking credit for paying back the K-12 education shift. The site also features a lie from Senator Al Franken regarding his vote in favor of the medical device tax that is damaging Minnesota companies.
Downey said the focus on insults is an attempt to call out the DFL Party and organizations like the Alliance for a Better Minnesota when they resort to name calling and bring down the level of debate.
“There’s a belief in politics that if you repeat something long enough, it becomes fact. We’re not going to let untrue statements about our candidates and beliefs go unanswered in the 2014 election. And we’re going to remind voters of the promises made by candidates like Mark Dayton and Al Franken during their campaigns for office.”
