From 14th District congressional hopeful Jim Marter:
Marter says Underwood outed herself as member of radical and irrational freshman ‘squad’
OSWEGO, Ill., August 21, 2019 – James “Jim” Marter, a software business consultant and prominent Kendall County Republican in the race for Congress for the 14th Congressional district, believes freshman Democrat Congresswoman Rep. Lauren Underwood officially outed herself this week as a radical and irrational left wing “squad” member in the House of Representatives by siding with them to push for impeachment of President Donald J. Trump based on zero crimes committed.
“It is now crystal clear to the constituents of the Illinois 14th district that Rep. Lauren Underwood’s agenda only caters directly to the radical and irrational democratic caucus, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and company now known as the squad, who relentlessly advocate for an impeachment circus, led by Rep. Jerry Nadler,” said James Marter in a statement.
“Rep. Underwood has been in Congress under a year now, and she has taken the baton from Rep. Nadler to push impeachment of a duly-elected Republican President who has not committed crimes.
“Rep. Underwood blatantly ignores the fact that the witch hunt against the President was based on a fake Russian dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton.
“Based on mounting proof of evidence publicly coming out through Freedom of Information Act Requests (FOIA) by Judicial Watch, well-informed people in the district paying attention to facts view the whole witch hunt as nothing but a political hit job by partisans who hate the President.
“This is also confirmed by the exhaustive and expensive Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigation that found no Russian collusion after two-years,” said Marter.
“The folks in our district know that Rep. Underwood and her radical democrats were pushing to impeach the president based on collusion initially, which is now dead since the Mueller report confirmed there was no collusion with Russia.
“So now Underwood and her radical party members are focused on trying to impeach the president based on so-called obstruction of a total sham investigation that found him guilty of no crime.
“This is how Rep. Underwood is serving the people in our district, serving her party politics of lies and not the issues of the district,” stated Marter.
Marter filed May 25 with the Federal Election Commission to run in the March 2020 Republican primary for Congress representing the Illinois 14th district.
Since launching his campaign, Marter pledged to support Term Limits and publicly declared his intent to join the conservative House Freedom Caucus to be a voice to countless Americans who feel that Washington does not represent them.
The Freedom Caucus supports open, accountable and limited government, the Constitution and the rule of law, and policies that promote the liberty, safety and prosperity of all Americans.
