MANCHESTER, NH – Today, Cornerstone Action in cooperation with the National Organization for Marriage launched a massive television and radio buy on WMUR, cable networks, and radio stations statewide. The new ads, titled “He’s Changed” highlight Governor Lynch’s record of saying one thing, but doing another, specifically in the areas of: raising business taxes, increasing spending, allowing early parole for violent and sexual offenders, and signing gay marriage into law.
The new ads begin airing this morning and run through Wednesday, October 13th. The total buy between the two is about $450k. Commenting on the new ads was Cornerstone Action Executive Director, Kevin Smith:
“Governor Lynch has an abysmal record of saying one thing, but doing another. The icing on the cake though was John Lynch earlier this year selling the legislature and the public a bill of goods by insisting that violent criminals and sexual predators would not be released early as part of his new early parole law. Of all the things to mislead the public on, this one has to be the most despicable. Why won’t the Governor just admit that this bill is letting out sexual offenders early when it has been so well documented now? The Governor owes us all, but most importantly, the victims a big apology for not telling the truth and compromising public safety because of it.”
According to the October 1, 2010 edition of the Conway Daily Sun (CDS, 10/1/10), it was revealed that three-time sexual offender, Michael Seibel, who recently violated his parole for stalking a teenage girl, will only serve 90 days in prison instead of what would have likely been five years because of the new early parole law.
Earlier this year, the National Organization for Marriage launched its “Lynch Lied” campaign which featured a television ad along the same theme as well as an interactive website: www.LynchLied.com.
