Bruning Campaign Not Authorized to Use Cabela's Name
Don Stenberg Campaign Salutes Cabela’s for Standing up To Bruning Campaign Deception - Bruning Prosecuted Gubernatorial Candidate for Similar Conduct
According to an official Cabela's news release, http://tinypic.com/
“In communications sent to his supporters and the media, Bruning's campaign described the event as ‘Dinner with Cabelas (sic) reception at Hillside Country Club.’ Cabela’
“Just last year, Bruning successfully prosecuted a candidate for Governor for claiming that the candidate had the financial support of organizations and individuals who, in fact, did not support him," Parsons said.
“Now Bruning engages in a similar deception in order to unfairly gain support for his U.S. Senate campaign," Parsons said.
“Cabela's is one of Nebraska's most successful and respected homegrown businesses and it is by far the largest employer in Sidney, Nebraska. Bruning’
“This incident reminds us of Bruning's recent campaign for Attorney General in which he ran a TV ad designed to deceive Nebraskans into believing he was from a small Nebraska town when, in fact, he is not," Parsons said.
"Bruning's Attorney General website says he protects Nebraskans from consumer fraud. But who will protect Nebraska voters from Bruning's fraud?" Parsons asked.
“The Stenberg campaign salutes Cabela's for standing up to the Attorney General and setting the record straight. If there are others who Bruning is falsely claiming support him, we would encourage them to set the record straight in a letter to the editor or similar communication,"
