Iowa's secretary of state rips Cruz over campaign mailer
"Ted Cruz is a Dutch bag, he always as selfish as can be' ,he so desperate to be President)

Iowa's secretary of state on Saturday blasted Ted Cruz's campaign over a controversial mailer that aims to drive voters to the polls for Monday's caucuses by claiming they have committed "violations."

"Today I was shown a piece of literature from the Cruz for President campaign that misrepresents the role of my office, and worse, misrepresents Iowa election law," Paul Pate, a Republican, said in a statement Saturday.

The mailer gave the recipient, along with their neighbors, poor grades based on their individual voting history. On one side, the mailer reads: "ELECTION ALERT: VOTER VIOLATION," "PUBLIC RECORD" and "FURTHER ACTION NEEDED."

The other side of the mailer says "VOTING VIOLATION" in red letters at the top before text that reads:

"You are receiving this election notice because of low expected voter turnout in your area. Your individual voting history as well as your neighbors' are public record. Their scores are published below, and many of them will see your score as well. CAUCUS ON MONDAY TO IMPROVE YOUR SCORE and please encourage your neighbors to caucus as well. A follow-up notice may be issued following Monday's caucuses."

Cruz campaign spokeswoman Alice Stewart confirmed to CNN that the mailer was from the Cruz campaign.

"Accusing citizens of Iowa of a "voting violation" based on Iowa Caucus participation, or lack thereof, is false representation of an official act," Pate said in his statement. "There is no such thing as an election violation related to frequency of voting. Any insinuation or statement to the contrary is wrong and I believe it is not in keeping in the spirit of the Iowa Caucuses."

Pate continued, "Additionally, the Iowa Secretary of State's Office never 'grades' voters. Nor does the Secretary of State maintain records related to Iowa Caucus participation," Pate said. "Also, the Iowa Secretary of State does not 'distribute' voter records. They are available for purchase for political purposes only, under Iowa Code."

Cruz, however, was defiant to reporters when asked about the mailer in Sioux City, Iowa, on Saturday night.

"I will apologize to no one for using every tool we can to encourage Iowa voters to come out and vote," he said.

The mailer comes as Cruz is in a heated battle with GOP front-runner Donald Trump in the critical first-in-the-nation voting state. A Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics survey released Saturday night found Trump holding a slight lead in the Hawkeye State, 28% to 23%.

It's PROPAGANDA

: The Nation is SOAKING in it in all aspects of the Fabric of our Culture

People are believing it too ! It's becoming baked in thoroughly.

Been going on for more than 8 year's - Every where - That one is in Print - Just One of the Social Media Avenues of Many

ASK : Who, What , WHY, Where, When.

Try a Simple one : Price of Gasoline : $1.60

We all talk about price - But have you seen Anything on WHY > ???

Huh ?? Why Cheap - People failing too look forward > Training in NOT Looking forward { Living in the Instant ) and believing it.

Who / What /When /Where /Why

The price of gas is so cheap, because the price of crude oil is so cheap, because there is a huge excess of oil globally. It's not that complicated GreyI made a mistake once, but I was wrong?

Every one must have reduced driving mileage / fuel consumption, and down graded to fewer cars in the drive way's and using smaller car's.

Bicycle sales and electric cars are UP ^

Price of good's & produce > Transportation is also down : Reason price of Beef is so cheap now $ 14.00 per 1Lb of Ribeye is do to the lower cost of transportation to the market. Bread is down to 3.50 a Loaf

Milk around $3.89 per gallon. Price of electricity is also dropping.

See how EASY that is Not Complicated

We are not using the fuel
