Shuler’s TVA lies show he can’t be trusted

To the Editor:

Since November, the whole district has known that Shuler told us all an endless stack of lies regarding his dealings with the TVA and his own personal property investments. His tall tale that he had never contacted anyone at the TVA to push his multi-million dollar deal along was blown sky high.

The Smoky Mountain News gave Shuler their “Pants On Fire Award”, saying: the “TVA report later confirmed that the Congressman had lied when he told media he had had no contact with the TVA.”

The Asheville Citizen Times’ John Boyle said: “There’s no pretty way to put this. Congressman Heath Shuler flat-out lied ... — repeatedly.”

The HendersonvilleTimes-News said: “Shuler tried to slide around the truth, apparently hoping that the whole story would never come to light.”

Shuler knew that it was wrong for a sitting Congressman to call the CEO of the TVA about his own sweetheart land deal so he decided to bald-face lie about it. And he has never once apologized for it.

When Shuler asks for your vote to be part of Pelosi’s majority again, will you let him pretend that what every major paper in WNC has reported as shameful fact never happened?
