    Two years ago, Granite State voters booted Carol Shea-Porter from office for putting her party first and her constituents’ interests second time and time again.

    Now Carol Shea-Partisan is back at it again, displaying uncompromising, unreasoning allegiance to party leaders in Washington rather than putting New Hampshire families first.

    Let’s see how…

    100% Rubber stamp

    After getting elected to Congress in 2006 Shea-Partisan proceed to vote in lock-step with her party leader Nancy Pelosi nearly 100% of the time.  

    When questioned about being a rubber-stamp Shea-Partisan responded, “And so far, I have voted, I think, 100 percent of the time with (Democratic leaders) because frankly I think they’re 100 percent right.”

    But it gets better.

    Shea-Partisan spent the next three years voting as her party leaders told her to vote.  In 2010, Shea-Partisan again confessed she voted with her party leaders nearly all of the time.

    The media had a field day with her admitted partisanship.  In both 2006 and 2008, Shea-Porter attacked her Republican opponent for being a ‘rubber stamp’ for President Bush.  As The Union Leader noted:

    “In both campaigns, she said she would be an independent voice for New Hampshire, a candidate who votes for her constituents, not her party. Her confession on Saturday reveals the lie in those promises. 

    “Voters in the 1st District were had. But now that the truth is out, and by her own admission, let her campaign on her real beliefs this time: ‘I’m Carol Shea-Porter, and I’m a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi.’ By her own definition of ‘rubber stamp,’ that’s the truth.”

    And now she’s trying to sell the same garbage again.

    Playing politics with the environment

    Carol Shea-Partisan only takes positions on issues when it suits her.    As many Seacoast residents are aware, the Environmental Protection Agency has issued new regulations amounting to unfunded mandates affecting six communities regarding the Great Bay that will “financially cripple” cities according to at least one mayor.

    Fearful of her special interest backers and her party leaders in Washington,  Shea-Partisan has refused to take a position on this critical issue.

    Bought and paid for by partisan special-interests

    Carol Shea-Partisan’s biggest campaign donor is the biggest special interest of them all, big labor unions.   Unsurprisingly she has received perfect 100% voting records with all major big labor groups.  When it comes to constituents interests, or those of her funders – you guessed it, partisan first, constituents last.

    100% - AFL-CIO: 2010, 2009, 2008
    100% - American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees: 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007
    100% - Service Employees International Union: 2009, 2008, 2007

    She Said It!

    In 2010, Carol Shea-Partisan said “I’m not going to pretend that I am voting with the opposite party half the time, I’m not, I’m not.  I think I have about a 90 percent rating with the president. I’m just giving full disclosure here, ok? Ninety-three percent with the house…and all along I have said, this is what I believe, this is what I believe.”

    Silly Shea-Partisan, Granite State voters don’t want a partisan follower- they want independent leaders.

    Wants it both ways on Super PACs

    In January 2012, Shea-Partisan wrote an op-ed calling on candidates to vow to support legislation that would get rid of Super PACs.  Shortly thereafter San Francisco based liberal Super PAC CREDO started attacking her opponent on her behalf.

    Shea-Partisan’s response?  Rather than take on her party, she was silent.  For four months.

    Then, when called out repeatedly be the media, she changed her tune to just focus on TV and radio ads, saying, saying super PACs engaging in negative ground activities and election persuasion were just fine.

    Then, she went on the campaign trail telling supporters she has proposed to ban them all together. 

    As long as it benefits her, Shea-Partisan will tell voters whatever she thinks they want to hear -  regardless of the truth.
