Tired of political games and falsehoods and married to a Combat Veteran Marine myself, I am incensed by the politics of slime that Congressman Filner is getting away with against his opponent; former Marine and Congressional candidate Nick Popaditch. I can only assume that the TV stations are enjoying the ad revenue despite the fact that the ads are completely false!
Congressman Bob Filner is running ads stating that his opponent Nick Popaditch did not vote for 11 years. Please see Nick’s response and the pertinent part of the ad, to the right of the story on the link below:
We have obtained Nick’s voting records from both San Diego and San Bernardino Counties for the years 1992-2010 as below:
Nick Popaditch’s Voting Record: San Diego
Nick Popaditch’s Voting Record : San Bernardino
As you can see, Nick voted in all years except 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, and 2005. Further to that, witness the fact that Nick voted in the 2004 Presidential election only 7 months after he was hit in the head by an Grenade in Falluja Iraq. As Nick explains in the above linked piece, he rushed to San Bernardino after being discharged from the hospital in order to vote in this important election!
Nick Popaditch nearly died for this Country! His opponent Bob Filner is the Chairman of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee and as Nick is a Veteran, Filner should retract this falsehood!
I am confident he will not do this, as I have seen this far leftie in action. He has nothing but disdain and contempt for anyone who does not agree with his Marxist agenda. Ever since this data was made public, Filner has not been seen nor heard from. At the last minute, he canceled a KUSI TV appearance where he was to go head to head with Nick on the topic of these ads.
He is running expensive ads during the World Series spouting these same mis-truths!I don’t know if Nick wants to counter these ads, but I am assuming money cannot hurt! Please donate what you can to Nick Popaditch for whatever last minute needs he has :
Jim Geraghty Of National Review online also cites Filner’s desperation and predicts a win for Nick ! http://www.nationalreview.com/campaign-spot/251666/democrats-desperation-move-out-californias-51st-district
I agree with Jim that it is an act of desperation on Filner’s part. He has no dirt on Nick so he fabricates it!
I too have been calling this for Nick for a while. It is my district. I have talked to many folks and can read the pulse of the district. It may be close, but Nick is still out there stumping for every single vote! We desperately need House wins in CA and hey, why not in my District? Nick Popaditch is the most principled candidate I have ever met. As Nick says “A Marine’s word is his bond”.
Thank you from the California 51st Congressional District!
