"Tipton's Got To Go"

  • 8 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

House Majority PAC is up with a fresh TV spot attacking vulnerable Colorado freshman Rep. Scott TiptonPolitico:

House Majority PAC, a so-called Super PAC that can take unlimited contributions, has made a six-figure ad buy across three far-flung House districts. The group is targeting freshmen Republican Reps. Scott Tipton of Colorado, Tim Griffin of Arkansas and Chip Cravaack of Minnesota.

“The American people are disgusted with House Republicans’ misguided priorities and votes to throw middle-class families under the bus,” House Majority PAC executive director Alixandria Lapp will say in a statement set to be released later Friday. “Whether it’s ethics problems or voting for tax loopholes to keep corporate profits sky high, protecting profits for companies that ship jobs to China, or ending Medicare as we know it, House Republicans have plenty to answer for back home this August recess.”

The new ad airing against Tipton features a clip of the Colorado Republican saying on the House floor that “once you come to this place … it seems to kind of cloud your vision,” juxtaposed with reports that his House office spent money on companies tied his nephew.

“You don’t say?” a narrator intones…

Tipton had some success getting conservative AM talk-radio stations to yank House Majority PAC’s last ad against him–in our opinion ridiculously, hinging on a semantic quibble over whether the company owned by Tipton’s nephew (and where his daughter works) was “hired” by his office or “just a contractor.” Either way, in this latest ad Tipton is simply “channeling” those funds to his family’s business, neatly eliminating the quibble.

  1. This is a company that over 100 members of Congress use. The ethics committee stuff is over and not related to the contract. More liberal lie machine crapola.

    I hope Zakhem gets this one pulled, too. These are false statements.

    1. If I were a Democrat I would put my chips there, sure.

      Not so with Cory Gardner, and I believe you’ll see a big spread open up between the serious fight for the Third and Brandonmander’s hopeless quest for the Fourth.
