Fact Check: Attack Ads from Mainland Progressive Group "False and Nasty"
By News Release @ 5:50 PM :: 6006 Views :: Military, Politicians

TEAM DJOU AGREES WITH COMMON CAUSE HAWAII -

End Negative Mainland Third Party Attack Ads

News Release from www.Djou.com

Team Djou reacted to the effort by Common Cause Hawaii to put an end to the negative mainland 3rd party ads that may soon start flooding Hawaii.

"Charles Djou's campaign is focused on the issues the people of Hawaii care about: lowering the high cost of living, creating jobs and taking care of our kupuna and keiki.  This election is about who can hit the ground running, working with Democrats and the Republican majority in Congress, to represent Hawaii on day one," stated Barbara Marumoto, Djou Hawaii's campaign manager. 

Third party special interest groups have frequently placed exceptionally negative ads designed to mislead local voters.  In 2012, over $4 mil. was spent by third party groups attacking former Gov. Ben Cayetano and lying about his record.  Similarly, the mainland special interest group, VoteVets.org has already stated they would be playing a role in the General Election in Hawaii.

In past elections, VoteVets launched misleading attack ads that were characterized as "false" and "nasty" by FactCheck.org. VoteVets supports "progressive" Democrats and has a long record of spending money against veterans, who have served our country honorably such as Arizona Sen. John McCain and Iowa State Senator Joni Ernst.

Djou represented Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District from 2010 to 2011.  Djou is a combat veteran who served with the 10th Mountain Infantry Division in Afghanistan from 2011 to 2012.
