My, that was quite a headline on Margery Abel’s letter appearing in the March 28th edition of the Franklin Press. “Buying local elections – this is how FreedomWorks.” The headline is as fallacious as the story that followed. Where to start? Ms. Abel is apparently still smarting over Sen. Jim Davis’ defeat of John Snow.
For openers, Ms. Abel states “FreedomWorks, a national organization funds local candidates for election who will promote its agenda.” Our agenda, so you will know what she is talking about, is “Lower Taxes, Less Government, More Freedom.” Shame on us. Evidently Ms. Abel advocates “Higher Taxes, More Government, Less Freedom.”
