Parson’s Allies Release Another Ad Riddled With Lies and Sexist Attacks
Parson’s PAC Uniting Missouri is out with a new video accusing Nicole Galloway of being unqualified for governor – all because she’s a woman who won’t fit in with the Jefferson City good ol’ boys club. Not only is calling her unqualified sexist, it’s just not true.
As the state’s top financial watchdog, and the only female statewide elected official, Galloway has rooted out fraud and waste in the state government and held corrupt politicians like Mike Parson accountable. Her audits have uncovered $370 million in wasted or stolen taxpayer money and resulted in 63 criminal counts brought against corrupt public officials from both political parties. What’s more, she was actually elected to her position, something that Mike Parson can’t even claim. Galloway’s resume also includes her service as treasurer for one of Missouri’s largest counties, as well as time in the private sector.
But according to the GOP, if you want to be governor, you have to give special treatment to lobbyists, have members of your own party investigate your inner circle for corruption, waste taxpayer money on flights to your private home, deny families paid leave and access to affordable health care, and mishandle a pandemic, resulting in the deaths of thousands. Looks like Mike Parson fits the bill.
“The candidate in this race with a track record of fighting for working families and making the government work for Missourians is Nicole Galloway,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Christina Amestoy. “As the state’s auditor, Galloway has saved Missouri taxpayers millions of dollars and held corrupt politicians accountable. This outrageous attack from the GOP is just another one of their desperate lies because they got stuck with Mike Parson as their candidate.”
