Orlando Sentinel says Miller Mailer: “True, but…”
Dishonest Miller Mailer Full of Half-Truths, Lacks Important Context
Recently, Craig Miller sent out a mail piece distorting Karen Diebel’s fiscally conservative record of cutting taxes, reducing spending, and shrinking the size of government. He then sent out a press release misrepresenting the Sentinel’s analysis of his claims.
Here are the facts: During Karen Diebel’s term as Commissioner, the millage rate decreased from 4.758 to 4.092 and the budget decreased from $47.2 million to $44.5 million. We need to elect more people like Karen Diebel who actually cut taxes AND government spending, not politicians like Miller who deliberately misrepresent the facts for political gain.
We are not surprised that Miller is continuing his campaign of dirty tricks and distortions. Miller’s only chance is to divert people from finding out the real truth about his ultra liberal activities. Miller’s shady tactics should be a warning to all conservative Republican Primary voters.
We have questioned Miller’s true motivations from the moment he entered the race. Miller has a public record of supporting Amnesty, a lawsuit that revealed his hiring of illegals in an effort to depress the pay of American workers at his company, and a record of spending millions lobbying against e-verify and border security.
All Conservative Republican voters in this district should ask themselves why a candidate with such a clearly liberal background would pour hundreds of thousands of their personal fortune into a campaign trying to win a Republican Primary.
There is only one answer – Miller hopes that his smokescreen campaign will allow him to sneak into Congress where he could push his liberal agenda on our district.
We urge all concerned Republican Primary voters to check the facts on Miller before they vote. We are sure they will be as suspicious of his motives as we are.
