Yesterday a hearing was held on Kevin Gerrard’s challenge to Tari Renner’s petitions. WJBC has a report on their website: HERE
As usual, they left out some facts. The email below was sent to the writer last night by Kevin Gerrard:
It always amazes me that you and other reporters at your station fail to report all of the facts.
How convenient of you to avoid pointing out that one of the people who Renner brought forth to verify his signature, admitted under questioning by me, that he had signed his wife’s name to the petition. This is prohibited by law, and it was noted into the official record. I also advised the BEC that we had discovered a number of similar situations like this during our audit. Omitting facts in your stories to support Mr Renner is just as bad as reporting facts incorrectly.
Back before BlnNews.com the media got away with fake news.
Note: I corrected one word in this email – Kevin was a victim of auto-correct. It doesn’t change the meaning or intent of the email.
