In a last-ditch bid to hang onto the Congressional seat he has held for the past 28 years, U.S. Rep. John Spratt is running a pair of “robo calls” telling voters that his Republican opponent Mick Mulvaney stole $30 million from them and wants to raise their grocery taxes.
Ironic, isn’t it? This coming from a guy who has spent more than $4.6 trillion since becoming Chairman of the U.S. Budget Committee four years ago … money that’s being ripped off from your kids and grandkids.
Anyway, unlike Spratt’s record deficits, none of the charges against Mulvaney are true – but with less than 24 hours before voters go to the polls, it’s unlikely that there is any recourse for the fiscally-conservative State Senator.
In addition to these robotic calls, red-and-white anti-Mulvaney signs have been popping up throughout the district – signs that look eerily similar to the red-and-white signs that attacked Mulvaney two years ago in his State Senate race against Democrat Mandy Powers-Norrell.
“Ban Abortion: Make Raped Women Have Babies,” one of those signs read.
