Found this from Karen Tirio under the article in which State Rep. Barb Wheeler calls for “civility” in campaigns.\:
Guess you didn’t hold a meeting with this dialogue with your own candidates or they didn’t get your memo, Barb!
One of Joe Tirio’s supporters sent this recorded robe-call to him. It’s a nasal female voice and says:
<blockquote>”One of the candidates for recorder is lying on his stances on the issues and Can’t Be Trusted!
Joe Tirio recently refused to answer if he opposed abortion and is on the record as supporting euthanasia.
As a proud pro-life republican I’m horrified that Joe Tirio calls himself a Conservative and may support abortion and euthanasia.
Vote NO on Joe Tirio on Tuesday”</blockquote>
This is Joe’s response to the cowardly campaign who concocted this lying smear:<blockquote>”Tonight there was an anonymous robo-call against me and my campaign.
To call it bull excrement would be an insult to excrement!
If you intend to lie and mislead the voters, at least be woman enough to sign your name to it.
In fact, it is REQUIRED BY LAW!!
To set the record straight…
I am pro-life, 100%!! [See article “Pro-Life Victory PAC Endorsements“]
Adoption is always an option and the ultimate gift to a family that cannot conceive otherwise.
On the call they said that I supported “euthanasia”.
That is a broad term.
As someone who has spent the last 6 years helping seniors in their last days, I believe I have a unique perspective.
I have been with too many individuals and families to mention.
I have seen the anguish in their eyes as sunset draws near.
I have seen the suffering.
Not just of the afflicted, but even more so, the suffering of the families as they sit by… unable to help the one they love as they suffer through their last moments.
I believe my God would want a merciful, dignified end to the life he created.
In fact, I think it is the same mercy for the unborn that also protects those who suffer, to allow them to pass in peace.
As for your lies, you should be ashamed (although, you probably aren’t).
To use such a gimmick for the purposes of simply winning an election shows your utter disregard for what is right and exposes your ‘do anything to win’ approach to the race.
You, whoever you are, are the model for what is wrong in government.
Do whatever serves you best, so long as you don’t get caught.
You are a disgrace!
Ultimately, you will have to answer to all this.
May he show you mercy.
