I expected this would happen, but this is earlier than I expected. Looks like the gloves are off in the Lt. Gov Primary. This is BAD NEWS for our party. This race will split neighbors and activists and fracture our party. Too early to get nasty gentlemen seriously would someone please stay above the fray???? -ROM

CHARLIE ROSS LIES ABOUT PHIL BRYANT
New radio ad by Charlie Ross is a blatant lie about
Phil Bryant’s position on illegal immigration.

(Jackson, Miss.)-You can always tell when a political campaign is in trouble when they start attacking and lying about their opponent. That’s exactly the case with Charlie Ross’ most recent, blatantly false radio ad.

In one of Charlie Ross’ new radio ads regarding the pending immigration bill in Congress and amnesty for illegal aliens, Charlie Ross says “Phil Bryant says it’s a good bill.”

“I challenge Charlie Ross to produce an audio or video tape with Phil Bryant saying that, and because he won’t be able to produce it, Charlie Ross should take this false ad off the air if he has any sense of decency whatsoever” said Neil Forbes, campaign manager for Phil Bryant. Phil Bryant’s position was recently misstated by WLBT-TV, not by Phil Bryant. Phil Bryant has never said he supports amnesty for illegal aliens.

To clear up this situation, the following is a direct quote from Wendy Suares, reporter at WLBT-TV in Jackson:

“I can absolutely verify there is no audio or video of Phil Bryant saying he supports amnesty for illegal aliens. In numerous interviews I have done with him on the issue, he has clearly stated that he supports immigration reform on the federal level in order to strengthen the border, etc., but he is very against any legislation that would grant amnesty.”

    Hmm. It appears the article I linked above had now been edited. The last paragraph used to read: “State auditor Phil Bryant says he supports the pending federal legislation. The immigrants’ rights group MIRA is planning to give its response next week.”

  2. elizabeth15 Says:

    Phil was misstated in the news report.

    Are you saying Phil is being negative or Charlie is being negative?

  3. theantidude Says:

    they are both negative. Looks like charlie threw the first punch but can you honestly say that press release is positive??? LIE is a strong word.
