“Integrity” Mark Brnovich claims to possess takes a hike in favor of desperation, campaign expediency
From MCRC Briefs July 24: AG Candidate Mark Brnovich’s July 21 Promo Statement ‘untrue’ that, “…Mr. Horne would not appear in the same room as us for the debate” for the Sunday night Attorney General candidate debate, according to the show producer.
Sybil Hoffman, executive producer of the Channel 3 Sunday evening debate, said, “That is not true.” Hoffman said that the station put the candidates in different rooms to video the debate. “Neither candidate asked for a separate room. The decision was entirely that of the station,” Hoffman said.
Incumbent Attorney General Tom Horne also said that it was the station’s decision to video the candidates in separate rooms.
Included in Brnovich’s July 21 fundraising promo were these words he knew to be untrue: “We were disappointed that Mr. Horne would not appear in the same room as us for the debate, but we look forward to future opportunities to demonstrate to voters who is best suited to represent voters this November in the general election. Please take some time to watch the debate and decide who you want fighting for you and your conservative values in the Attorney General’s office.”
Engaging in outright deception when campaigning on “conservative values” is risky business.
