$150,000 Consultant to Spot Connecticut ‘Election Misinformation’
This week, Governor Ned Lamont and Secretary of the State Denise Merrill announced their decision to hire a $150,000 a year taxpayer funded consultant to spot so-called “election misinformation”. According to Connecticut Republican Party Chairman Ben Proto, this is further evidence of Governor Lamont and the CT Democrats handing out plum political jobs to help buy votes and further infringe on the rights of the people of Connecticut.
“Joe Biden, Ned Lamont, and Democrats have one mission here: silencing any dissenters under the guise of combating ‘misinformation.’
“Governor Lamont’s strategy is pretty dystopian,” said Proto. “Sadly, this stunt is typical of Connecticut Democrats, who use their time in Hartford to champion and impose on voters the most radical and extreme measures. President Biden learned the hard way on this, and it looks like Governor Lamont and Connecticut Democrats are destined to do the same. While they remain dead-set on skirting accountability for one-party rule, voters are taking note. This is another example of Democrat overreach and why it’s critical that we end Connecticut’s one-party rule this November. As I have said, voters have a choice: change the people making these bad decisions or continue to embody the definition of insanity.”
