HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding Joe ‘Says Tax’ Sestak’s attempt to distance himself from his extreme liberal voting record:
“Whether Joe Sestak voted with extreme liberal Nancy Pelosi 100% or 96% of the time, I would imagine that much like a proud parent, Speaker Pelosi is pleased with Joe Sestak’s A+ record of voting alongside her to implement her extreme liberal agenda,” Gleason said. “While Joe Sestak is quibbling over a couple percentage points, the fact remains that he served as a rubberstamp to bailouts, the government-takeover of the health care industry, the cap-and-trade energy tax and countless other massive spending bills. When Nancy Pelosi really needs Joe Sestak, he is there every step of the way.”
According to an article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette today, Congressman Sestak is attempting to force television stations to remove a Chamber of Commerce ad detailing his votes with liberal Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. The ad states that Congressman Sestak voted with Nancy Pelosi 100% of the time, which is entirely accurate about his votes in 2009.
