State Dems caught lying about Mahoney’s comments on Social Security

The New Hampshire Democrat Party got caught fibbing in an attack on First Congressional District Republican candidate Sean Mahoney on Social Security this week. In a press release, state Dems claimed Mahoney had called Social Security a “bailout” and that it had been caught on tape!

There’s only one problem. Let Nashua Telegraph state house reporter Kevin Landrigan tell it:

A review of the video reveals Mahoney didn’t make that remark.

Mahoney was indignant:

“I’ve never said that, would never have said that, and I think this incredible distortion tells you all you need to know about the strategy of the Democratic Party,’’ Mahoney said.

“They want to send up smokescreens so the voters don’t pay attention to what matters in this race, and that is the out-of-control tax and spending record of Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter.’’

This is the second false Democrat attack this week. Recall that FactCheck.org claimed earlier this week that second District Rep. and Senate Hopeful Kelly Ayotte “deleted the truth,” in his new attack on Republican Kelly Ayotte.
