Congressman Maurice Hinchey is under attack in what are clearly desperate last minute attacks to try and unseat the 9 term congressman.
First let me start out by saying Bill Kimble should be fired from the Freeman. There is a video of Maurice Hinchey and Bill Kimble arguing that I will post above. In the video Congressman Hinchey is annoyed by the set up style questions this reporter is asking him and Hinchey calls him out on it. Pretty much saying you have no credibility, you have ran untrue lies about me in the past and I want to talk to this other journalist that wants to conduct an actual interview. Bill Kimble persists to harass Congressman Hinchey and Hinchey tells him forcefully to shut up, kudos to Maurice.
Obviously that did not sit well with Mr. Kimble who wrote a very nasty hatchet piece on the Congressman's performance in the debate trying to depict him as if he was old, anyone that knows Maurice knows well that he is very competent and on the top of his game. Kimble is taking his vendetta a step further claiming there was a physical altercation between the two men prompted by the Congressman. This of course is untrue, Kimble continued to harass Hinchey even after the interview and there was a heated conversation. Congressman Hinchey took the high road and walked away from Kimble who was looking for a fight.
If what Kimble said were true, why would he omit that from the original story in the Freeman,?Hey that would be big news, no? A better question why would he feel that he could write an impartial story on the debate after all that? Bill Kimble betrayed and deceived the Freeman readership today to try and tarnish our Congressman and that is unacceptable.
George Phillips who is the Republican candidate for Congress is running ads now paid for a consulting firm owned by Karl Rove. This firm has dedicated over 300 thousand dollars to do it's best to smear Congressman Hinchey.
George Phillips also said in an interview with capital tonight that he fully supports Carl Paladino to be Governor of New York State.
Do we really want a Congressman like George Phillips who accepts money from Karl Rove and thinks Carl Paladino would be a great Governor???
One should be judged by the company he keeps. This is a no brainer Maurice Hinchey needs to be reelected in November. Hinchey is our Congressman and has always been there for us in Washington never afraid to back down from a tough issue. Broome County you can keep Mr.Phillips, Ulster County and the rest of the 22nd don't want him.
