BOB KEREY'S RECORD NOT 'DEBATABLE'
LINCOLN, NE - New York Resident and Nebraska Senate Candidate Bob Kerrey seems to have an awfully tough time making up his mind these days.
First, Kerrey was unsure of which phony address to list as his "residence" on his Nebraska voter registration card (sister's basement, donor's guesthouse).
Then he said he would "never" disrespectfully refer to the President of the United States by the President's first name (Kerrey has, repeatedly).
And recently, Kerrey was apparently unsure of just how much compensation he received as President of the ultra-liberal New School University in New York (Kerrey FEC Disclosure: $900K, IRS Documents: $3 million).
Now Bob Kerrey and his campaign team can't agree with themselves on the importance of candidate debates in the race for the United States Senate.
In 1994, when Bob Kerrey was last on the ballot in Nebraska, Kerrey could barely be bothered to debate his Republican opponent Jan Stoney and his campaign even referred to candidate debates as "overrated in terms of their importance."
But in 2012, an already desperate Kerrey Campaign has called for numerous debates, including an upcoming forum at Cornhusker Boys State, in a struggle to stay relevant, suggesting that Nebraskans deserve the opportunity to learn about the candidates.
NEGOP Chairman Mark Fahleson asks why Bob Kerrey has changed his mind on debates, but not on the critical issues most important to Nebraska.
"Bob Kerrey understandably wants to appear at Cornhusker Boys State so that he may introduce himself to a group of Nebraska residents who weren't even alive the last time he was on the ballot," Fahleson said. "His opposition to debates may have changed, but his record of support for higher taxes, gay marriage, raising the debt ceiling, and partial birth abortion is not debatable."
