LAS VEGAS, Nev. — In the past 24 hours, two independent organizations have exposed deceptive statements released by DC Dean Heller.
On Monday, KTVN News 2 conducted an investigation into Dean Heller’s deceptive campaign tactics and released their findings in its evening news segment. The “Reality Check” segment dismantled the Heller campaign’s false and deceitful campaign smear ad against Danny Tarkanian. Throughout the segment, the Heller ad was called out for being “misleading”.
On the same day, Ballotpedia, a nonpartisan online political encyclopedia, released a “Fact Check” on Dean Heller’s flip-flopping on federal funding of Planned Parenthood. The article validated Danny Tarkanian’s criticisms of Heller’s history of political double-talk (“Tarkanian is correct in claiming that Heller contradicted his long-standing position on Planned Parenthood”).
In response, Danny Tarkanian released the following statement:
“I’m glad that career politician DC Dean Heller is finally being exposed for what he is: a swamp politician that does and says anything — including outright lie — to stay in office. The Heller campaign has teamed up with DC establishment in a joint attempt to invade and influence Nevada politics by lying to Nevadans. But Nevadans won’t be fooled by their swamp tactics. I commend the work of the teams at KTVN and Ballotpedia for holding DC Dean accountable for his deceits.”
