This kind of cut and paste works both ways:
"·Assemblywoman Tenney has been in Albany for a decade on a taxpayer-funded payroll as both an Assemblywoman and staffer. Before finally getting her own seat in Albany, she ran and lost for several local offices. Assemblywoman Tenney is also a trial lawyer on the side and has a penchant for mixing her personal business with official government duties and votes.
·The Syracuse Post-Standard said,“The challenger’s claims don’t always hold up to a check of the facts” when describing how Assemblywoman Tenney is lying about Richard Hanna’s record on Obamacare, the Second Amendment and other issues.(Syracuse Post-Standard, 5/19/2014)
·Assemblywoman Tenney voted against downsizing New York’s bloated state government. Tenney opposed elimination, consolidation, or merger of numerous government boards and commissions, including more than a dozen that had been inactive or already completed their mission.(A09060; 3/28/2012)
·Upstate New Yorkers pay some of the highest property taxes in the nation, but Assemblywoman Tenney voted against $1.5 billion in property tax relief—relief that our families desperately need.(2014-15 New York state Budget)
· Assemblywoman Tenney was the only Republican member of the New York state Assembly from Central New York who voted against creating a hi-tech center which would help create thousands of jobs in the Mohawk Valley.(2014-15 New York state Budget)
· Assemblywoman Tenney cosponsored a bill to censor the Internet and abridge the First Amendment by banning anonymous Internet speech.(New York state Assembly bill A08688)
· Assemblywoman Tenney says she is against earmarks and pork barrel spending, however, in Albany she has sponsored millions of dollars in special interest earmark spending.(New York state Assembly bills A03294, A09069)
· Assemblywoman Tenney says she is against raising taxes, but Tenney cosponsored a Democratic bill in Albany that will raise sales taxes.(New York state Assembly bill A08710)
· Upstate New Yorkers pay some of the highest energy costs in the nation, but Assemblywoman Tenney voted against phasing out an energy tax on New York businesses.(2014-15 New York state Budget)
· The death tax unfairly hurts Upstate family farms and small businesses when an owner passes away, but Assemblywoman Tenney voted against reducing the death tax burden on thousands of New York farms and estates.(2014-15 New York state Budget)
· Assemblywoman Tenney says she is working hard for Upstate in the Assembly, but she is so ineffective that not one single bill that she has introduced has ever passed.(New York state Bill Search website accessed April 28, 2014)"

So now Hanna's the conservative....when it suits him still haven't answered any questions. Let me see a quote from a Democratic Congressman who has called members of his party extremists and told people to send their money to the other party.
Still haven't explained why the first time ever one of the major political parties doesn't have anyone running for Congress against an incumbent. Where is the Democrat Candidate for Congress? What kind of deal did Hanna make with Mitch Ford? Why won't he deny that he might switch parties?
The office of congressman may be a national office but he is still locally elected. Why does Hanna need an out of state radical leftwing billionaire to finance his campaign? Just who does Hanna represent?
If Hanna is so proud of his record, why is he hiding from a debate? Is he afraid that Republicans will see his left wing record for what it is?
You are forgetting that this is a Republican primary, not a general election. No Democrats, no independents, no "moderates". Hanna has done a very poor job selling himself to the Republicans who will vote in the primary.
if ignorance is bliss then you have to be the happiest person on topix. truth answered your questions you just dont like the answers.

No one has explained why for the first time ever one of the major political parties in this area isn't running someone for Congress against an incumbent. Where is the Democrat Candidate for Congress for this district? What kind of deal did Hanna make with Oneida County Democratic Chair Mitch Ford?

It's highly likely Hanna made a deal to switch parties with the local Democratic party leadership. Hanna certainly hasn't denied it and his actions demonstrate that he is a Democrat at heart.

Why won't Hanna deny that he might switch parties?

Just read in the OD: almost a million dollars spent in the campaign. The vast majority of it on Hanna. His biggest source of the money is from some radical gay out of state billionaire and the Oneida Indian Nation.

Criticism of Hanna is so funny to me. I think he's done a great job. He supports his party for the most part, but also has the balls to sometimes vote against his party if he feels its in the best interest of his constituents. That's what Congress is about. I guess some Arcuri voters are still bitter?

Arcuri voters upset over Hanna?? Are you kidding! They and the Democrats LOVE Hanna! That's why they didn't even bother to run a candidate against him. Hanna is one of those "useful" fools who do more damage to the Republican party while in office then a Democrat could do. Make no mistake Richard Hanna is the Democrat's man!

No balls? Isn't that what you call hiding from a public debate. I notice the name calling again... But I suppose if you can't answer the hard questions name calling is all Richard Hanna can do.

Questions like:

- Why does Hanna need almost a million dollars in support from a radical, Washington DC based gay rights billionaire?

- Why are there no Democrats running against him and why won't Hanna deny that he may switch to the Democratic Party?

- Why should CNY Republicans support a candidate who calls his fellow Republicans extremists and tells women to send their money to Democrats? Why should Republicans work hard to support a candidate who doesn't support their party?

- Why does Hanna continue to disrespect voters and the democratic process by not having a public debate? Is he ashamed of his record?

- If Richard Hanna is proud of his record as a "moderate" why does he send out flyers saying he is a conservative and that he is more conservative then Tenney? Who is the real Richard Hanna?

All we get from Hanna is name calling, stalling, and no answers!

Asked and answered several times. Just because you don't like the answers doesn't mean the questions haven't been answered.

One of my favorite quotes of all time comes from Dr. martin Luther King Jr. He said:
"Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance".

Just saying you answered is not the same as specifically addressing the questions raised.
FOr example, there is strong evidence that Hanna will switch parties after the election.
- Hanna's left wing record
- The highly unusual circumstance of the local Democrats not running their own candidate.
- the lack of outrage from rank and file Democrats to the lack of a candidate to run against Hanna
- Hanna's close working relationship with Oneida County Chairman Mitch Ford
- Hanna's" Republicans are extremists" remarks and his advice to women to send money to the Democratic party raises serious doubts to his party loyalty.

This is a Republican primary. We have a right to a candidate Whe represents us, not far left special interests.

The only way this will go away is if Hanna unequivocally stated that he will not switch parties while in office. He has so far refused to state so.

More questions for Hanna:

Almost a million dollars have been spent on Hanna from money donated by an out of state radical gay billionaire and the Oneida Indian Nation. If Hanna is so strong, why does he need their support?

- name ONE Democratic member of Congress who called his fellow Democrats "extremists" and told people to send their money to Republicans? In other words, name the Hanna equivalent on the Democratic side.

- why am I getting flyers from Hanna saying he is a "conservative" while on the other hand brags about being a moderate voting against his party? Who is the real Richard Hanna?

- Why is Hanna so afraid of publicly defending his record in a debate? The "Tenney is a liar" is a cowardly way out. Is it because he believes that Republican voters aren't smart enough to decide for themselves?

Tenney does not know how to debate. She takes over the mic and rambles on excessively. Why would anyone subject themselves to that spoiled, self-absorbed, mouthy, bitch?
