Lentz Continues Deceptive Tactics in 3rd Debate
DREXEL HILL, PA – In the third debate this campaign season, Bryan Lentz, Pat Meehan’s opponent, continued to deceive voters about Pat Meehan’s positions on critical issues.
“Bryan Lentz has made deception his number one campaign strategy as he has chosen to deliberately mislead voters time and again about Pat’s views on tax cuts, Medicare and Social Security,” said Meehan for Congress Campaign Manager Bryan Kendro. “For a candidate who spoke a lot about honesty in his debate closing statement, Bryan Lentz has been anything but in this campaign,” Kendro concluded.
During the debate, Lentz repeated an accusation he made in a television advertisement first aired last week. The ad was declared “misleading” by multiple media outlets, but during the debate Lentz persisted in defending the disproven ad, saying “It happens to be true, what the commercial says.”
Also during the debate, Lentz charged that Meehan supports privatization of Social Security and Medicare, stating “Pat…wants to fix the debt by privatizing Medicare, which essentially ends Medicare, [and] privatizing Social Security…that ends Social Security.”
Meehan has repeatedly gone on record opposing any privatization of Social Security and Medicare.
