FACT: Kevin McDugle actually Supported the COLA bill (first pay raise in 12 years!) for retired public employees. He backed another pension benefit plan and Matt Lay, who represents the Tulsa and Broken Arrow firefighters released a video stating:
“One of our champions Kevin McDugle – ignore the mailers, texts, and more..not only did he coauthor the public employees benefit bill, but he fought for our COLA. Make no mistake, the firefighters stand with Representative McDugle….let’s send a message to these outside groups that they cannot interfere in our election. We know we can count on Kevin McDugle to stand for us.”
Jared Lindsey who represents the Fraternal Order of Police also agreed and in fact – BOTH The Tulsa Lodget 93 Fraternal Order of Police AND The Tulsa/Broken Arrow firefighters ENDORSE KEVIN MCDUGLE for Re-election.
FACT: The Board of Legislative Compensation, which also cut the salaries of legislators a couple of years ago, decided on their own to change the salaries – a change which will not take effect until after the November 2020 elections. There has been no pay raise at all implemented for current legislators.
Dark Money Dine put two logos of leading Oklahoma advocacy organizations on his latest mailer – which confuses voters as they can be construed as “implied endorsements”.
FACT: Both of those organizations have actually endorsed Kevin McDugle for Re-Election, well before Dark Money Dine used the logos on his mailer.In fact, not only has the NRA endorsed Kevin McDugle the Oklahoma Second Amendment Association has also ENDORSED Kevin MCDugle:Representative Kevin McDugle (R) is ENDORSED by OK2A.
“He was an Author for Constitutional Carry and many other liberty protection bills. Let’s return this Veteran from HD12 to the state capital to defend our rights.”
Oklahoma Second Amendment Association
FACT: Liza Greve, President of the group said:
“Kevin McDugle is the only candidate in the HD12 race that is Endorsed by OKHPR.”
If Dark Money Dine is letting an outside group lob attacks, and can’t speak truthfully himself to even win an election – who will he be representing if dark money with unknown donors help him deceive you enough to give away your vote?
