As the ColoradoPols blog reports, a press release from the Markey campaign calls out an ad from Gardner, which accused Congresswoman Markey of voting for a budget -- which she didn't vote for. Indeed, the House roll call votes that are cited, if followed through, show that she voted no.
The truth: There was a Representative Markey who did vote yes -- the more liberal Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA). Betsy Markey spokesman Ben Marter said in the statement: "I would point Rep. Gardner to a site on the 'internet' to research his claims a little better: www.google.com. If Rep. Gardner can't figure out how this whole voting system works, how can he be trusted to actually read bills?"
