Flake Campaign Lies; Career Politician's Desperate Campaign Falsely Accuses Cardon Of Failure To File Taxes, IRS Violation
June 8, 2012 - Press Release
The Truth? Cardon Doesn't Own and Has Never Owned Company Depicted In Ad!
- Today, Congressman Jeff Flake's distortion-filled campaign for the United States Senate did what previously seemed impossible: They sunk lower than ever before when it comes to lying about successful businessman and jobs creator Wil Cardon.
In a fiction-filled video headlined "Wil Cardon Doctors The Truth," -- a video wrongly accusing the Cardon campaign of "desperate lies" -- the Flake team erroneously claims that "Wil Cardon failed to file his insurance company's income taxes forcing the IRS to revoke the company's tax status."
The truth? Wil Cardon has never held an ownership interest in Eagle Gate Insurance Ltd., the company identified in the video. Cardon has never invested a dollar in Eagle Gate. Nor has Cardon ever had anything to do with paying the company's income taxes or its IRS filings.
"Since Day One, the Flake campaign has lied about Wil, his business record and his conservative credentials, but this is a new low," said Alyssa Pivirotto, spokeswoman for the Cardon campaign. "To simply make up facts and accuse Wil of failure to file income taxes -- a crime -- is beyond shameful."
"The Flake campaign needs to pull down this video immediately and apologize for wrongly accusing Wil of violating the law. Slandering people is not conduct becoming a U.S. Senator, though this sort of utter lie is consistent with what we've seen from a career politician Arizona voters absolutely should not trust."
The video also falsely accuses Cardon of favoring earmark spending and of questioning Barack Obama's qualifications to hold the office of President.
"We get it," said Pivirotto. "When reality isn't in their favor, the Flake campaign will resort to doctoring facts. They'll lie and say Wil supports earmarks when he doesn't. They'll lie and call Wil a 'birther' when he isn't. And they'll even manufacture facts about Wil's business career. I'll say it again. This is a lie -- one the Flake campaign needs to retract immediately." Category: Press Releases
