Don't let 'dark money' steal this election; vote for Carol Shea-Porter

To The Daily Sun,

It is easy to support Carol Shea-Porter. She deserves the support of Democrats, Republicans, and independents. She does not accept corporate PAC money and she does not accept lobbyist money. She will go to Washington to represent the people of her district.

Her opponent is Frank Guinta. Did he really violate campaign funding rules? Did members of his own party ask him to resign? Have you looked at his voting record against vets? Does he really deserve another term?

The record says that Carol will support our veterans who return from harm's way. She will keep her word to protect Social Security and Medicare. She will speak up for students and working family. In short, she will represent all of us.

Don't let "dark money" steal this election. Vote for Carol Shay-Porter because she deserves our support.

Even if you agree with Guinta's goals, he's lying about what he's done

To The Daily Sun,

Our congressman, Republican Frank Guinta, has been doing what he does best: lying about budgets and how he would balance them.

Congressman Guinta has a long history of lying about money, having illegally taken $355,000 in contributions from his parents in 2010. His five-year-long refusal to admit to this led the Union Leader to dub him a "damned liar" in an editorial.

He recently claimed to have been crucial to passing a balanced budget amendment and $60 billion in cuts. To which I say, he's still a damned liar. The budget process managed by the current Republican Congress has utterly fallen apart. Both chambers failed to agree to a budget. No balanced budget amendment was adopted and they only funded the government through Dec. 9. So what's he talking about? Budget cuts?

Spending for FY 2016 and FY 2017 will likely be above the Budget Control Act caps that Congressman Guinta voted for in 2011, and the government continues to under invest in critical needs like infrastructure and education.

Even if I agreed with Congressman Guinta's budget goals, he's still flatly lying about what he's done. New Hampshire deserves better, and he should be voted out of office in November.
