Morgantown, WV -- Congressman David McKinley released the following statement on the recent attacks on Shelley Moore Capito:
“The latest personal attacks on Shelley Moore Capito by Natalie Tennant are nothing more than a desperate effort to substitute innuendo for facts. Those who know Shelley well understand she has devoted her career to fighting for the people of West Virginia – and always puts them first. To question her and her family’s integrity and character is gutter politics at its worst.
It’s no wonder Americans are losing faith in our political system, when discussion of issues is replaced with innuendo and inference. Discussing differences on issues and records is one thing, but attacking someone’s personal character is another thing altogether. Shame on Natalie Tennant for stooping so low.”
