AS SENATE HOLDS IMPORTANT HEARING,
WILL ROB MILLER RETURN MONEY TO LIBERALS WHO
SMEARED GEN. PETRAEUS?
SC VICTORY 2010 Challenges Miller to Return $370,950.10 in donations
(COLUMBIA, SC – JUNE 29, 2010) An extremist group once questioned whether a successful American Army General would betray us. Who would take money from people like that?
Liberal Democrat Rob Miller, that’s who.
As the Senate Armed Services Committee holds a hearing today on General David Petraeus’ nomination to command U.S. military forces in Afghanistan, Americans are remembering a shameful incident that happened amid a similar hearing nearly three years ago.
The liberal activist group MoveOn.org released an infamous advertisement in September 2007 smearing General Petraeus’ integrity, asking “PETRAEUS OR BETRAY US?” (click to see ad). That ad was widely condemned. Now, the General who withstood MoveOn.org’s assault and went on to help change the direction of events in Iraq is being asked to produce the same results in Afghanistan.
MoveOn.org was wrong about General Petraeus in 2007 and they are still wrong today. Now, MoveOn.org wants to send liberal Democrat Rob Miller to Washington as their Congressman from South Carolina’s Second District. Statements filed with the Federal Election Commission show MoveOn.org has funneled a whopping $370,950.10 in campaign contributions to Rob Miller For Congress!
Why does MoveOn.org want Rob Miller to win so badly? Because they know he will advance their liberal agenda.
Clearly, MoveOn.org’s views are deeply offensive to South Carolina’s long and illustrious military heritage and its ongoing commitment to America’s men and women in uniform. Accepting more than one-third of a million dollars from this group tells South Carolinians that Rob Miller stands alongside MoveOn.org and against the views held by most people in the Second Congressional District.
Today, SC Victory 2010 challenges Rob Miller to immediately step forward, do the right thing and return every last penny of the $370,950.10 he has received from MoveOn.org. Keeping this money is a clear indication that as a Congressman, Rob Miller would be more beholden to those who paid for his election than to the people he supposedly would serve. Every day he delays in refunding the money and repudiating MoveOn.org is a day South Carolinians can only wonder: whose side is Rob Miller really on?
