Tim Johnson, Ethically Challenged and Consistently Liberal
New Study Shows Senator More Liberal Than Socialist Bernie Sanders
Pierre – U.S. Senator Tim Johnson has faced ethical scrutiny in recent weeks after a Washington Post investigation revealed that he steered federal money toward his wife’s business. In addition to helping his wife, Johnson has faced nepotism charges for installing his own son as South Dakota’s U.S. Attorney. Johnson’s son, Brendan, is widely-known to be planning his own run for political office using his federal post as a launching pad.
Now comes word of a new study of Congressional voting conducted by National Journal which reveals that Johnson’s voting record is more liberal than that of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, the Vermont socialist. Johnson’s voting record was also more liberal than his fellow Democratic Senators from neighboring states such as Nebraska, Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, Colorado, Missouri, and Wisconsin.
“Tim Johnson is a consistently reliable vote in the U.S. Senate for the liberal Obama agenda and the people of South Dakota deserve to know that,” said Tony Post, Executive Director of the South Dakota Republican Party. “South Dakota deserves better than a Senator who is always looking for appropriations and federal jobs for his family and voting to uphold a liberal agenda.”
