On July 25, Ben Lange wrote an op-ed trashing Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, with false statements about his records and financial disclosures. I went through Braley’s financial disclosure forms and he doesn’t own a single share of a Chinese company as Lange accuses.
Lange accuses Braley of being out of touch in his support for the TARP funding, which included $6 billion in disaster recovery funding to help communities like Parkersburg recover from a devastating tornado and Cedar Rapids from a disastrous flood in 2008. Braley voted the same way as Sen. Chuck Grassley on TARP. If Lange wants to criticize that vote, maybe he should return the $10,000 in contributions that he got from Grassley.
I think these attacks by Lange are even more evidence as to why he can’t be trusted. We need more representatives like Braley who work for us.
