THE PROBLEM WITH LYING? IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO KEEP TRACK
Another day, another story from Alan Gross, who is running for U.S. Senate against U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan.
This time, it came during a video debate between the two on Tuesday, when Sen. Sullivan asked the Democrat nominee if he thinks Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico should be granted statehood.
Gross said no, he did not think that was best for Alaska.
“I would not support expanding that. I think that’s a bad idea. I support 50 states in our country,” Gross said.
That’s when Sullivan called him out for lying to the Alaska people, and said it has been Gross’ modus operandi for his entire campaign — telling Alaskans one thing, but then telling Outside liberal groups something else.
The Sullivan campaign had the video of the previous position that Gross had taken, when speaking to an Outside group and they shared it with the public, comparing them side by side:
Gross has also been caught speaking in favor of Medicare for all, and has boasted of his conversations with Sen. Chuck Schumer, and how the two spoke about optimism for passing the Green New Deal.
Gross has come under scrutiny for fluffing up his Alaska resume by saying he purchased a fishing boat when he was just 14 years old by getting a loan, and that he killed a bear once — a tale that has been strongly challenged by Alaska Department of Fish and Game reports. His campaign is heavily financed by Outside liberal groups and the political action committee controlled by Sen. Chuck Schumer.
