We have all seen plenty of negative ads from many candidates this campaign season.
It appears that no candidates that I have seen can top the number of negatives ads as Bonnie Wilhelm has put forth.
She claims to be a "Christian" candidate, and she claims to be supported by many "Christians."
However, the Bible claims that "by their fruits ye shall know them."
She says that she is the most pro-life candidate, but upon conversation with Scott Fischbach, executive director of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life, he told me that MCCL considers both candidates as equally pro-life.
When we look at marriage, Al Juhnke has been married to his wife, Claire, for many years, and has broken up no one else's marriage. Can Bonnie Wilhelm say the same thing?
She says that she should always support our governor, Tim Pawlenty, but he instituted the sale of Willmar Regional Treatment Center for less than $1 million (which was less than the trailer court sold for across the street from the hospital). Now officials want to build another 16-bed hospital somewhere in the city of Willmar and spend millions on it. At the same time, over $1 million is being spent to build new heating plants at the state hospital for the buildings which are still left. The old heating plant was sold to the new owners of the buildings.
Bonnie Wilhelm may claim that these nasty negative ads were not put out by her, but rather the Republican Party. However, she is the Republican candidate for state representative. She has the power to stop these ads from running, but she doesn't.
Al Juhnke's weight is not the issue, but rather his record is. "By their fruits ye shall know them!" Maybe Al Juhnke's record sets the best example.
