New American Bridge Video: Lyin’ Walker Stapleton Can’t Be Trusted

How do you know he’s lying? His lips are moving. Tonight occasional State Treasurer Walker Stapleton became the Republican nominee for Colorado Governor. But in winning the nomination, Stapleton lost his credibility with Colorado families. From basic lies about his background, to easily provable falsehoods and gross exaggerations about his record as Treasurer, Walker Stapleton has tried to mislead Colorado voters at almost every turn.

“Walker Stapleton lies so often that if he ever showed up to work, he’d find Pinocchio waiting for him in the lobby hoping to get some tips,” said American Bridge spokesperson Zach Hudson. “Lying may have won Walker Stapleton the Republican nomination, but it cost him his credibility. His lousy record as Treasurer will lose him the Governor’s office.”

VIDEO: Unlike Jeb and Laura Bush, Bush Cousin Walker Stapleton Supports Trump Family Separation

Watch: Stapleton on separating families at the border: “What the President has done, which I agree with…”

Last night, part-time Colorado State Treasurer Walker Stapleton broke rank with the Bush Family and said in a debate he supports the Trump Administration’s policy of separating young immigrant children from their parents. Earlier this week, Stapleton’s family members, former First Lady Laura Bush, and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, both came out against the Administration’s policy of family separation. Then, in a move Walker Stapleton clearly noticed, Donald Trump Jr. canceled a fundraiser with Jeb Bush’s son, Texas Agriculture Commissioner George P. Bush, in response to the Bush Family’s criticism of the family separation policy. In contrast, their cousin, Walker Stapleton, is fully on board Trump’s policy. When asked last night by a debate moderator if he supported the Administration’s policy, Stapleton said he agreed with it.

VIDEO: Walker Stapleton Called Out for Repeatedly Lying in New Ad

WATCH: “We’ve been putting political ads to our truth test for years, and you really don’t see that many blatantly false claims…but Walker Stapleton, he dares to be different”

“Bona fide false”

“Overstatement”

“As State Treasurer, Stapleton barely has the power to stop payment on a check”

“This ad is writing checks his record can’t cash”

That’s gonna leave a mark. Last night, 9 News in Denver ran a brutal segment tearing apart the claims in Republican candidate for Colorado Governor, and occasional State Treasurer, Walker Stapleton’s first television ad. Stapleton, who boasts that he doesn’t show up to work when it rains, made numerous claims in the ad that 9 News found to be “bona fide false,” “blatantly false,” and “overstatements.” The segment concluded with journalist Brandon Rittiman saying, “this ad is writing checks his record can’t cash.” Ouch.

“Maybe if […]

Walker Stapleton Refuses to Work When it Rains

Does he melt if he gets wet or something? Today, video surfaced of Republican candidate for Colorado Governor, and occasional State Treasurer, Walker Stapleton telling an audience that he doesn’t show up to work if it’s raining. No, really. He said that. Even worse, this isn’t the first time Stapleton has come under fire for not doing his job. In fact, just last night, Stapleton skipped an important meeting of the Public Employees’ Retirement Association (PERA). Stapleton is on the PERA Board of Trustees.

 

“Maybe Walker Stapleton should buy himself an umbrella and get to work instead of collecting a taxpayer funded paycheck for staying at home when there is bad weather,” said American Bridge spokesperson Zach Hudson. “Colorado deserves a Governor who shows up to work rain or shine, not a politician like Walker Stapleton who doesn’t do his job if it means he gets a […]
