“The recent personal attacks against me are a pathetic attempt to obfuscate the effect his voting record has had on the families of hard-working Americans in New York.”
You sent out a media release with an endorsement from Brent Bozell, chairman of the far-right Conservative Victory Committee, who called Hanna “a faux-Republican.”
This week, you trumpeted the endorsement of Carl Paladino, the tea party favorite who in 2010 acknowledged circulating a series of racist and sexually explicit emails and falsely implied that Andrew Cuomo — like Paladino — had extra-marital affairs.
In your media release, Paladino praised you and called Hanna a “RINO” — Republican-In-Name-Only.
Ms. Tenney, as we said, we firmly believe you are better than that. You have time before the June 24 primary to end the inane name-calling and to have a thoughtful and cogent discussion about the sincere differences you have with Hanna. We urge you to do so.
