Jim Justice in IFFY disendorsement


On Principles & Values: Condemned with IFFY award for running "Issue-Free" campaign

OnTheIssues attempted and failed to compile the issue stances of this candidate--which means the candidate actively sought to hide issue stances from the internet, the news media, and the voters. OnTheIssues undertook due diligence--including writing to the campaign--and got no response. We will eventually infer the candidate's issue stances from a future voting record--but voters should demand to know about the candidate's stance on their favorite issues (and then send them to us!)

We consider "issue-free campaigners" to be untrustworthy of holding elected office--the IFFY award means they are "iffy" officeholders. Just having a "vision" is not enough--voters need to know how the candidate will actually vote on key issues. Issue-free candidates run their campaigns by mouthing platitudes like "How 'bout them Cubs?" and claiming "I respect motherhood & apple pie!" That is an insult to their constituency--and voters should complain loudly and often. We already have--join us!
