Letter: Plenty of people had money troubles and got scammed


I believe voters are smart enough to see past all the 11th-hour political hit pieces.

Even so, just this month, the Democrats spent more than $205,000 in “dark money” aimed at taking out Bill Bruch, a Republican candidate for a Legislative District 10 House seat.

Dark money, also called “independent expenditures,” are campaign funds his opponent does not have to disclose. The massive amount targeting Bruch comes almost entirely from public employee unions. They are the ones who cash in when taxes go up for the rest of us.

Is it any wonder they do not want him in the legislature? Bruch’s opponent is a public employee who proved to be a reliable vote in favor of every scheme to increase our taxes.

So now we see the Democrat sleaze machine is working overtime to smear Bruch over a financial situation he got into when he was in his 20s. They want you to think he rips off old ladies.

They have even managed to convince some media outlets that a situation from the 1990s is “news.”

I know plenty of people who had serious money troubles and got scammed when they were in their 20s, but that does not make them crooks.

Do not buy into the political spin. Bill Bruch is a principled, honorable man who will draw on all his experiences to represent our interests. I am proud to support him.
