McAdams will side with the Liberal Mob in Washington. It's a fact.Pelosi and Waters no sooner represent Utah's values than oil and
water. Any Republican/Moderate votes for McAdams will sorely be mistaken in a
matter of months.
I'll be glad when elections are over.
I find it very interesting that Republicans are horrified with things Ben
McAdams says and does and then it accept it when Love does worse things. Wake
up. All politicians are corrupt, not just the Democrats!!
mdonalds1"This works for me too!!!! Go Mia!"I
agree, Mia needs to go!rtobias - Spanish Fork, UT"She deserves another term to continue the work she has started."Isn't that what you and others said about Orrin Hatch for 40
years?BTW, Mia hasn't really done anything for the people of
Ben McAdams could find reasonable support for any office at the local or state
level in Utah, especially if he ran as an independent or a Republican. But I do
not want a Democrat from Utah in Congress. The national Democratic party spends
most of its time generating tribal warfare by putting together a collection of
special interests, much counter-culture, comprising votes, but not national
interest.The challenge to Mia Love's use of funds openly
derived for the use of her campaign(s), primary or final is a blatant abuse, a
bunch of hooey. It represents a contrived, malevolent distraction rather than
an address of issues. The House of Representatives is a 435 member
body and it is hard to make much of a difference as an individual. But the
office can be a stepping stone to something of more significance. My guess is
that this is the McAdams interest. Better for Love to prevail here and let Ben
work towards the greater good at home.I have heard Ben describe
himself as a "Progressive." But "Progressive" was a
transitional word from "Communist" just a few decades ago. I think he
is better principled than that. What we need are some "Benevolent Moderate
Mia Love is without question one of the most honorable people I know. She has
worked hard for Utah. She may not be the best at getting word out about her
accomplishments, but the information is readily available for those who seek it.
It's refreshing to have someone like Mia who cares more for working hard
than bragging about her accomplishments. She already has introduced (and passed)
more bills than many who have served longer than she has in Congress. She
deserves another term to continue the work she has started.
If false or errant claims about the opposition were a reason to withdraw from
the race, Love should have been gone months ago.
emb - Pleasant Grove, UTOct. 19, 2018 6:13 a.m.When Ben moves
into the district I will consider what he says.======= 1. Once Prop 4 passes, and gerrymandering is made illegaland an
independent committee redraws the districtsBen McAdams will BE in his
district - like he was before the ridiculous GOP redraw.2. Orrin
Hatch isn't from Utah, and merely owns a 2 bedroom condo in SLC [for a
mailing address purposes only], he lives in & owns 2 houses in
Virginia and Pennsylvania, yet that hasn't stopped you for 42 years
voting for him.
Vote for Ben.
You know, Mia, if anyone should drop out of the race it should be you.
When Ben moves into the district I will consider what he says.
Hats off to investigative work by KSL that uncovered that the group that filed
the FEC complaint against Love has ties to McAdams. This unfounded
October surprise initiated by the Alliance for a Better Utah was calculated to
inflict major damage to Rep Mia Love's reelection and personal integrity.
KSL noted these telling points:"The investigation initiated by
the FEC has not once used the words “criminal” or
“illegal”. Instead, the FEC simply sent a letter to Love’s
campaign asking for “additional information” about the funds she
raised during the 2018 Primary election . . ."But only that
second investigation, made in response to Better Utah’s complaint, uses
language like “criminal penalties”, and the only documents
we’ve been able to find that refer to Love’s investigation as
“criminal” have been written by Better Utah and not the FEC
themselves. . . . "Better Utah has made it clear [they] know
exactly how long these investigations take."When Love, during
the debate on Monday, said that she had received a phone call from the FEC
clearing her, Better Utah’s Chase Thomas refuted her claim, telling
Deseret News that FEC complaints normally take 'years to
I don’t know if the McAdams campaign and the Alliance for a Better Utah
are joined at the hip or not. What I do know is that once the FEC’s
General Counsel Office takes the almost unprecedented step of issuing a written
statement that Love’s campaign “is not required to take any
corrective action,” it is disingenuous, if not dishonest, for the McAdams
campaign out of one side of its mouth to be saying it had nothing to do with the
filing of the complaint but out of the other side of its mouth, trying to do
everything it can to keep the issue alive and repeatedly arguing that the FEC
statement isn’t what it obviously is. I had hoped for better from the
McAdams and Love.Both of you stop all of the negative campaign ads
trashing each other. It makes many of us not want to vote for either one of you.
We are more interested in your position on challenges our country is facing. You
negative ads also turn off a lot of young people to voting at all.
Both of the two major political parties are corrupt, unethical, and don’t
have the country’s best interests at heart. They both are more concerned
with scoring political wins that do nothing to solve the multitude of problems
facing the nation. The two major parties have been overrun by extremists and
don’t reflect the majority of the citizenry. More people
identify as independents than either the republican or democratic parties and
the number of independents is growing. It’s time for a moderate/sane third
party to emerge.
Once again, people think they know what liberals want. And they put it out there
as though it was fact, which it isn't.Liberals do not advocate for
open borders. To say that they do is to either deliberately spread falsehood, or
to be ignorant of the facts. Giving you the benefit of the doubt, we can
conclude you are just ignorant of the facts, because your sources of information
are in fact deliberately trying to make you mad and scare you with baloney.Liberals do not want children, including infants, separated from their parents
who came to America seeking asylum, which is not illegal.Hillary, as a
private citizen, has a right to donate to any campaign, just as you do. Do you
know who is donating to Mia's campaign? Most of Ben's money is coming
from private citizens in Utah. I would like to know where Mia's money is
coming from, but thanks to Citizens United, the most corrupt law ever devised in
this country, we citizens cannot know where or who PAC money comes from.
It's a secret.It's pretty hard for private citizens to compete
with huge corporate donations. It's David and Goliath. We citizens are
David.Who is Mia beholden to?
This goes to show how corrupt are government is. Why have the FEC if they allow
Love and Mike Lee to improperly raise money and keep it.
I have come to believe (this article about Love-McAdams being a perfect case in
point) that this Democrat strategy of lying no matter what facts are presented
to the public, is now the Democrat norm. They know that if they keep up a
lie........no matter what facts are presented, that some people will believe
them. It's so dishonest and so disingenuous! "The email
released Thursday states that the analyst, Mike Dobi, 'correctly informed
you of our analysis and conclusion and properly advised that Friends of Mia Love
is not required to take any corrective action regarding the primary election
contributions at issue.'"The email was written by Danita
Aberico, a compliance advice attorney in the FEC's policy division general
counsel's office."This works for me too!!!! Go Mia!
"The email released Thursday states that the analyst, Mike Dobi,
'correctly informed you of our analysis and conclusion and properly advised
that Friends of Mia Love is not required to take any corrective action regarding
the primary election contributions at issue.'"The email was
written by Danita Aberico, a compliance advice attorney in the FEC's policy
division general counsel's office."That works for me."Roberts said that the email released by Love 'is not a
decision by the FEC and does not exonerate her. The criminal complaint against
Ms. Love is still an open matter.'"What would it take for
McAdams' campaign manager, Andrew Roberts, to move on this close to the
More GOP Spin. This is like bragging about a seat belt ticket being thrown out
while you still have DUI and reckless driving charges pending. Those supporting
Mia on this abuse of campaign money are ignoring the big picture.
McAdams cannot debate the issues: the economy, impeachment, taxes, boarder
security, abortions, health care, defense, and the second Admendment and win. He
has to turn to charges and countercharges of mischief in a vain hope of
distracting voters from how he will act in Congress. He is using the old
Democrat play book of switch and bait, deny, combined with smoke and mirrors. It
helps him that the MSM are his willing accomplices. The pollsters and the DN
keep calling and hoping for a close race, just like in 2016 when Hillary was a
shoe in to win, and we know how that worked out. I wonder if the news media will
say anything when Love wins by over 10%, no, won’t hold my breath.
This is not the only questionable activity Love has engaged in. She either
doesn't know what she's doing, or she's dishonest. Either one is
reason not to get my vote.
So money raised before convention can be kept according to her lawyersAfter convention they should have stopped raising money but didn't, or
they should have re-designated the money within 60 days .... but didn'tThe question isn't if Love raised money improperly (she did) but
how much was improper3 options1. All $1.3m raised for
primary was improper2. Any raised after the 3/15 filing deadline
when she knew there was no challenger was improper3. Any raised
after the 4/21 convention confirmation was improperLove argues for
3, FEC has not yet formally ruled but her lawyers claim they agreeStill minimum of an improper $300k she didn't re-designate when she
should have and had to be called on by FECSo not a question of IF
Love raised funds improperly, just a question of how much and after what date

@ EsquireIt means exactly that.
It is all dirty $. We need to get all the special interest $ out of our
elections and return them to the people. Where is the will of the American
people and backbone of Congress to make this happen? Elected
officials that have to spend all their time fundraising aren't doing the
job they were elected to do. Newcomers that might be great candidates do not
have the money for a fair fight. Also, when these outside groups fund you, you
have to deliver their message and wishes. This is part of what is corrupting our
democracy and elections. It is something we could put an end to.
It still doesn't mean that Love didn't violate campaign laws....
