Paul Broun issued a release today in which he claimed that “there are three candidates in [the] run-off, not two: himself and the two Jim Whiteheads.”
Said the release:
There is the Jim Whitehead who says one thing in Augusta and the Jim Whitehead who says something entirely different in Athens and the rest of the district.
Jim Whitehead told the Georgia Sport Shooting Association candidate interview committee that he doesn’t own a gun. During the GPTV debate, Jim Whitehead sounded like he owns an arsenal of high-powered weapons.
I wonder when some intrepid reporter is going to ask him to prove where and when he bought those guns and when he joined the NRA, because he did tell the GSSA that he was not a member.
Frankly, Mr. Whitehead has trouble with the truth. When this race started his famous line was: “I can’t be Charlie Norwood, but I can be myself.” Wrong on both counts! The man is so scripted and rehearsed and such a double talker that by now he probably doesn’t know who he is. That’s more politics-as-usual.
