Letter: Spreading False Information

To the Editor

To the Editor:

It is unfortunate that Graig Parisot, a newcomer to Fairfax County politics is reaching out to new lows of credibility in making false statements about Delegate Kathleen Murphy’s position on I-66 tolls.

The toll proposals have become a hot issue since some state officials mentioned the possibility of using tolls on I-66 inside the beltway as a way to finance adding new lanes. Delegate Murphy, the incumbent in the 34th District in the House has opposed such tolls. She has stated her position on tolls at the McLean Community Center debate on Oct. 18. Nevertheless, Parisot has launched robo-calls falsely implying that Murphy is supporting such tolls.

This is a total falsehood. Parisot should stop such unethical behavior. Perhaps he is doing this to distract voters from his record which is an extreme Tea Party agenda.
