Congressman Tom Reed Busted for Willfully Misleading Constituents

 

Last night, news broke that Congressman Reed’s campaign created a misleading Twitter handle and website to fraudulently impersonate Plumb.

Both the handle - which was “temporarily frozen” by Twitter – and the website used the ‘John Plumb for Congress’ logo to mislead voters and invite them to donate to Reed’s campaign. Reed called the impersonation tactic a “good use of resources.”

After this story broke, Reed tried to cover up his tracks. It has now been reported that the donation link that “had invited people to donate to Reed has been replaced by a ‘Get Involved’ link.”

“Not only is it sad and shameful that Congressman Tom Reed misled voters and raised money for his re-election by fraudulently impersonating me, but now he is trying to cover up his tracks,” said Plumb. “Congressman Reed defended his campaign’s misleading tactics as a ‘good use of resources’ – which should already tell voters how much he’s gone the way of Washington.”
