New Ad: Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn is the Most Corrupt in Washington

Washington, D.C. (October 31, 2018) – Today, SMP released a new statewide ad in Tennessee summarizing how Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn has been among the most corrupt in Washington by looking out for herself at Tennesseans’ expense. Congresswoman Blackburn used her position of power in D.C. to give her son-in-law’s company $4 million in earmarks and paid her family over $300,000. Meanwhile, Blackburn took home $2.7 million in taxpayer-funded salary even though she skipped more votes than 97% of Congress; failing to show up for critical legislation that would have helped Tennesseans. When she did show up to vote, she supported policies good for her opioid industry donors, not for hardworking Tennesseans.

“Marsha Blackburn has been one of the most corrupt politicians in Washington; she enriched herself, her family and her drug industry donors at Tennesseans’ expense, and the people of Tennessee deserve better,” said Hannah Hurley, spokesperson for SMP. “As Tennesseans head to the polls to make their choice for Senate, it is critical they remember how Marsha Blackburn has abused her power to help herself and has done nothing to help them. Congresswoman Blackburn has been on the wrong side of the opioid epidemic and she has skipped 97% more votes than her colleagues. She is the worst of Washington and has failed the people of Tennessee.”
