Tester’s Reckless Attack on Concerned Women for America
By Mario Diaz, Esq.
July 2011

Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee’s (CWALAC) new Spenditol ad is having a great impact all over the country.  The ad highlights Washington’s out-of-control spending ways in a humorous way and asks people to call their elected officials and tell them to “stop spending it all.”

That simple message is apparently so offensive to Senator Jon Tester (D-Montana) that his campaign has resorted to slandering Concerned Women for America (CWA) in an apparent effort to fundraise and do damage control.

Here is the recent email sent out by the Tester campaign:

The communication is full of inaccuracies.  For example, we are not sure what part of the ad is making “accusations about Jon’s record.”  But the most shameful part is that they defame CWA’s name:

More than anything, I'm angry at [CWA’s] nerve. I did some digging around, and here's an interesting fact: this same special interest group attacking Jon right now also lobbied Congress against child pornography protection. If you ask me, that’s something the women of Montana (and all of America, for that matter) should be concerned about.

 

This is an outrageous, slanderous statement!  A simple Wikipedia search would have alerted Sen. Tester’s campaign that CWA “endeavors to fight all pornography and obscenity,” saving him from this embarrassing fundraising flap.  And if his campaign staff had actually taken the time to go to our website, they would have found something like this:

Teste’s sloppy and inaccurate fundraising gimmick might lure some into thinking this was done out of ignorance.  But such a reckless disregard for truth and accuracy, suggest this attack on CWA was not merely a mistake, but a calculated effort to defame.  Shame on them!

No question they owe CWA an apology.
