Rep. Steve Scalise Falsely Claims Obama Is Going To Rig Midterm Elections
Republican Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana falsely claims in a fundraising newsletter that former President Obama is going to rig the 2018 midterm elections.
Scalise, the Majority Whip in the House of Representatives, desperately lies about Obama whose campaign infrastructure created Organizing for Action, an advocacy group, notes Right Wing Watch.
Advocacy groups often get involved in campaigns, but Scalise portrays Organizing for Action as something nefarious.
In his fundraiser, Scalise says that Republican contributors have to stop the former black president “from rigging our elections.”
Scalise also falsely claims that Obama plans to “interfere” in the midterms:“Barack Obama just made his move – revealing his scheme to interfere in the 2019 midterms. And it’s bad news.”
Scalise also whines “it’s unprecedented for a former President to interfere this way.”
Scalis pours on the lies with thew tag line: “Contribute $25 to Stop Obama From Rigging Our Elections
Scalis’ fundraiser claims to be concerned about 27 Republican held seats, but the money does not go to the Republican campaign fund, but to Scalise’s personal campaign committee.
