Illinois House leaders accuse Dems of running distorted campaign ads

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Illinois House Republican leaders are accusing state Democrats of running distorted campaign ads.

The house's GOP leader Tom Cross says House Speaker Mike Madigan is behind a series of misleading direct mail campaigns.

Republicans says the mailings are preying on the fears of voters regarding topics like Social Security, Medicare and the 2nd Amendment.

"They have launched a campaign of misinformation and lies designed to deceive voters at a time when voters need the most accurate information available to make critical choices," said State Rep. Tom Cross. (R) House minority leader.

A spokesperson for House Speaker Michael Madigan tells ABC7 that, unless state Republicans want to disavow the Romney-Ryan budget, the brochures are right on target.
