Mark Moores Lies to New Mexicans In Latest Ad

Mark Moores released a blatantly false ad this week, misrepresenting state Representative and candidate for Congress Melanie Stansbury’s record on social security taxes. Moores makes the ridiculous claim that Representative Stansbury has done little to lower taxes for seniors on Social Security, when in reality, Stansbury has sponsored bipartisan legislation to provide a Social Security income tax exemption, including in House Bills 29, 77, and 130 in 2020 alone.

In fact, while Representative Stansbury has worked to protect seniors during the pandemic, including checking in individually with constituents, Senator Moores has not sponsored a single bill that focuses on exempting Social Security income from income taxation. And it’s his fellow Republicans in Congress who have repeatedly threatened to defund Social Security

“Moores knows that he can’t run on his own poor record, so he’s making up lies about Representative Stansbury to distract voters from the truth,” said DPNM spokesperson Miranda van Dijk. “Melanie has a long record of supporting our seniors, and she has shown throughout the pandemic that her first priority is protecting her constituents. This is a desperate attempt to rewrite history and distract from Moores’ own failures to support seniors.”
