Tenenbaum dodges the issues



It has been suggested that both Inez Tenenbaum and Jim DeMint have been dodging issues. Nothing could be further from the truth. Only Mrs. Tenenbaum has been hiding from who she really is. She is a former abortion lobbyist who has taken more than $400,000 from EMILY's List, a radical pro-abortion group. But you'd be hard pressed to find anything about her pro-abortion views on her campaign Web site.

Jim DeMint always has been a tireless and vocal advocate for tax reform. He has an extensive tax-reform plan posted on his campaign Web site. Further-more, he challenged Mrs. Tenen-baum to debate tax reform in three debates. So who is really hiding?

Jim DeMint is the only candidate who understands the need to scrap the Internal Revenue Service and the 45,000-page, job-killing tax code. I'm glad to support a candidate who articulates his positions openly, honestly and effectively.
