Braley’s Sexist “Chick” Ad Also A Lie

braleymostlyfalse

Bruce Braley is having a rough week. After Joni Ernst won the Republican nomination for Senate, Braley released an ad that compared Ernst to a peep-less chick. Not only was that ad panned as sexist, but it turns out it’s also not even factual.

KCRG ran a fact check on Braley’s “Peep” ad and came to the following conclusion:

The ad claims Ernst never proposed a single piece of legislation to cut spending and waste but these proposals show otherwise.

We rate this claim mostly false.

If you’re keeping score at home, make sure you add “sexist” and “mostly false” to Braley’s gaffe-prone campaign adjectives.
