DJOU: STATEMENT ON FALSE ADS BY NATIONAL DEMOCRATS

Today, Honolulu City Councilmember Charles K. Djou, Republican candidate for Hawaii’s 1st Congressional district, responded to the national Democrats recent television ads that completely misrepresent his record:

"This outside intrusion into a Hawaii political campaign is unprecedented and unnecessary.  There should be no need for a mainland Democrat group to be involved unless they are afraid of how the people of Hawaii will vote.  My position on issues is there for all to see, and the votes that I have taken are clear, honorable and correct.  For the DCCC to attempt to sway public opinion in this manner by defaming my character is clearly wrong."

"My opponents and I should be judged on our record and our accomplishments. I am confident the people of Hawaii will do just that and will not welcome this outside interference in our electoral process by D.C operatives.  I certainly hope my opponents do not endorse this kind of unethical behavior."

The DCCC ad is based on an Americans for Tax Reform pledge that Djou signed that simply stated that he would not vote to raise taxes, a position that is consistent with Djou's record.  Djou has consistently voted against all tax increases in the 10 years that he has been a state legislator and city councilmember.  ATF today released a statement calling the DCCC's attack ad on Djou 'blatantly false' and pointed out that numerous Democrats in Congress have taken the ATR pledge.
