NJGOP Chairman Calls On Kim To Take Down Ad

Trenton, NJ – Earlier today, independent fact checkers at the Washington Post determined that Andy Kim’s latest campaign ad includes false claims about Kim’s resume.

The Washington Post reported that Andy Kim engaged in “a classic case of resume puffery”, oversold “his bipartisan credentials”, and stretched “his resume to elastic extremes”.

This is not the first time Andy Kim has been caught lying on the campaign trail. Earlier this year, Kim embellished his resume when he claimed to have served as a “strategic advisor” to Generals David Petraeus and John Allen in Afghanistan back in early 2011 but, later in 2011, confessed to being a simple “Notetaker.”

Kim was forced to change the language on his website after the truth regarding his position was revealed.

“Once again, Andy Kim was caught red handed trying to fool voters in South Jersey. Integrity dictates that he pull his ad from the air immediately and replace it with an apology,” said NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt. “If Kim isn’t comfortable running on his true, professional experiences, then perhaps he’s figured out for himself that he’s not qualified to serve in Congress.”
