Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-Toms River) has a new TV ad, “WaPo,” highlighting a Washington Post fact check that found Democrat Andy Kim exaggerated his resume.
The newspaper accused Kim of “resume puffery”, overstating his bi-partisan credentials, and stretching “his resume to elastic extremes” in one of his own TV ads,”
“Voters across South Jersey already know that Andy Kim took an illegal property tax break on his nearly million dollar condo in DC that he wasn’t entitled to. Now they are going to learn that the TV ad he’s been running for weeks is false,” said Chris Russell, a MacArthur campaign advisor. “Andy Kim has intentionally and repeatedly misled voters about his resume and this ad exposes him as a phony who has been lying to voters from the beginning about who he is and what he stands for.”
The script: “Have you seen Andy Kim’s ad? The one about his military and security experience? It’s a lie. The Washington Post Fact Check: Kim’s ad “stretches his resume to elastic extremes” and is “overselling his bipartisan credentials.” The truth? Kim had an “entry-level job” and never served in the military. Andy Kim: Lying to you from the start.”
