You may have seen a mailer from the Maine Republican Party attacking Ned Claxton, a candidate for State Senate. Is it accurate and honest? See below for the fact check on this piece.
The mailer claims Ned Claxton “refuses to cut taxes” and “even wants to tax the miles you drive” and the mailpiece cites a candidate forum as evidence of this claim. The staff at Claim Check have reviewed the footage and Ned Claxton made no such comments during the forum.
There have been several instances of misleading or completely inaccurate information sent to voters and paid for by the Maine Republican Party and this is another example. There is simply no justification for this type of misinformation.
