Lewis Slams Smith for Delaying COVID Relief Yet Again

Lewis Slams Smith for Delaying COVID Relief Yet Again

over incarcerated inmates being able to make phone calls for free,

EAGAN, MINNESOTA  ~~~~  September 10, 2020  ~~~~  (LSN)  U.S. Senate candidate Jason Lewis released the following statement slamming Senator Tina Smith for delaying COVID relief yet again.  

“I wish I could say I’m surprised that Senator Tina Smith is marching in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, but this is just more of the same from Tina. Last month she held up relief over a demand that incarcerated inmates be able to make phone calls for free, and that’s after she twice voted to block relief in the spring while simultaneously dumping $1 million dollars in personal stock holdings.

"Further proving this is nothing more than a political game for Tina, she has basically been running a single issue campaign on the alleged need for more post office funding in recent weeks, and yet she shot down the latest round of COVID relief which includes USPS funding, all because party leaders told her to.

"Minnesota can no longer afford a Senator who plays politics and puts their own personal financial interests ahead of their constituents, especially when lives and livelihoods are on the line."
