Robertson's VA Claims Come Under Fire

(WETM-18) – Congressional candidate Martha Robertson is coming under more fire for her comments about the VA scandal. A Politifact article has rated similar claims to the ones she made about Congressman Tom Reed as false.

On June 4th, Robertson said in a statement, in part, "Congressman Reed has hurt veterans with a stunning series of votes against reducing the VA backlog, funding to process more disability claims for wounded warriors, medical and prosthetic research, medical services for post-traumatic stress disorder and suicide prevention, and homeless programs for veterans." You can read her full statement here.

Today, Politifact rated similar claims that Democrats have made against Republicans as false. Politifact is a website that looks at claims politicians made, and rates them for truthfulness.

Congressman Reed also has an "A" rating on votes concerning Veteran's Affairs from American Veterans (AMVETS)

We reached out to Martha Robertson’s campaign on Monday. We have not heard back, but will update this story when we do.
