KMBC Finds Davids Ad Inaccurate
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – KMBC’s Micheal Mahoney called out Sharice Davids for continuously running inaccurate ads about Amanda Adkins’ record on abortion. Davids has peddled the lie that Adkins supports a federal ban on abortion in numerous mail pieces and ads, despite the fact that Adkins is on the record opposing a federal ban on abortion over a dozen times since the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
“Kansas Democratic incumbent Congresswoman Sharice Davids has a new commercial out saying her GOP opponent Amanda Adkins wants a nationwide ban on abortion… KMBC 9’s Micheal Mahoney checks the accuracy of that claim in the Kansas Third District Congressional race,” KMBC anchor Ketz stated.
While Davids has repeatedly lied to voters and claimed that Adkins supports a national ban on abortion, Mahoney set the record straight and noted, “Amanda Adkins is most definitely pro-life but has said several times she is not for a national abortion ban.”
“Inflation is costing Kansas families $8,666 this year, but Sharice Davids would rather run a dishonest and divisive campaign than debate the real issues that Kansans face every day,” Adkins responded.
Sharice Davids has profoundly claimed in the past that she only runs “truth ads,” not negative ads, and dodged a question last week about her deceptive commercials by stating she doesn’t “want to be part of divisiveness” and “negativity.” Unfortunately, Davids has changed since she went to Washington and began voting with Nancy Pelosi 100% of the time. Davids’ 2022 campaign strategy is to lie her way out of accountability for the bad economic policies she supported which have led to skyrocketing inflation.
Kansans deserve better.
