Debunking Republican (Koch Brothers) Lies – ‘Tennant Calls Conservative Group’s Voter Registration Mailing “Misleading”
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP, Heath Harrison) — ‘The West Virginia secretary of state is calling an Americans for Prosperity mailing about voter registration “misleading” and “confusing.”
‘The mailer says the recipient only has a few days to register to vote at his or her current address’.
‘Tennant said legitimate contact will only come from county election clerks, not third-party groups’.
“If you have not moved, changed your name, or switched political parties, then you should throw this mailer into the trash because your voter registration is still valid.”
“The secretary of state’s office did not send this mailer, and it did not come from county clerks. We don’t know what the purpose of the mailer is but we do know that it is confusing citizens.”
‘Americans for Prosperity state director Wendy McCuskey said the mailer was sent to people who aren’t registered, based on public record. She said it was legal and nonpartisan’.
‘The small-government Americans for Prosperity opened a West Virginia chapter in January. The national organization was founded by billionaire conservative activists Charles and David Koch, who are well-known for the political spending and campaign contributions for conservative and Republican causes’.
