Josh Harder’s Deception Runs Deep

CA-10: Last week, on San Francisco columnist Joe Garofoli’s “It’s all Political” podcast, Congressman Josh Harder, aka PACMan, deceived Central Valley voters yet again. “I don’t take a single dollar of corporate money,” he vowed before rehashing old attacks on his predecessor for accepting pharmaceutical and organizational money. Listen below:

A close look at Josh Harder’s cash on hand reveals that the pharmaceutical companies Amgen and Sunovian Pharmaceuticals were significant contributors to PAC to the Future and Massachusetts-based 4MA PAC, respectively. Harder has also accepted funds from Florida Sugar Cane League PAC and Michigan Sugar Company Growers, just to name just a few of Harder’s many special interest-fueled political action committee contributions.

In fact, fewer than 10 percent of donors to Josh Harder’s campaign actually reside in California’s 10th Congressional District, and less than 3% of dollars raised have come from local residents.

Josh Harder has been repeatedly caught deceiving local voters about his top campaign promise to “refuse Corporate PAC donations,” and has instead accepted approximately $314,000 in PAC contributions to date.

Josh Harder: Partying like a Boss…a Party Boss

CA-10: During the 2018 election, then candidate Josh Harder said, “We need leaders with the courage to stand up to their DC bosses…”. But now, Congressman Josh Harder has taken tens of thousands of dollars from fellow Washington DC politicians – the same Party Bosses he criticized during his campaign. These Party Bosses don’t represent our Central Valley. So, who does Josh Harder represent?

Here are just a few of Josh Harder’s DC Party Boss donors over the last few months:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco)
Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Greenbelt, MD)
Rep. Karen Bass (D-Los Angeles)
Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Oakland)
Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Schaumburg, IL)
Rep. Nita Lowey (D-White Plains, NY)
Rep. Bill Foster (D-Aurora, IL)
Rep. Brad Schneider (D-Lincolnshire, IL)

Not only did Josh Harder deceive voters and accept thousands in PAC contributions funded by corporate special interests when he said he wouldn’t, but Harder is also raising thousands from Washington DC Party Bosses – while telling local voters he isn’t doing their bidding.

Incumbent Congressman Josh Harder caught deceiving Valley voters on his two most important campaign promises – public demands he return the money.

CA-10: Midyear FEC campaign fundraising reports have unveiled that an alarming number of 2020 contributions from out-of-state entities, Bay Area special interests and politicians, and Political Action Committees are carrying incumbent Democrat Josh Harder’s campaign for re-election.

Fewer than 10 percent of donors to Josh Harder’s campaign actually reside in California’s 10th Congressional District, and less than 3% of dollars raised have come from local residents. A huge portion of Harder’s donors are from out of state, and also includes help from Party elites like Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Lee.

The report also indicates that Josh Harder has been caught deceiving local voters about his top campaign promise to “refuse Corporate PAC donations,” and has instead accepted approximately $314,000 in PAC contributions to date. PAC donors to Harder include PAC to the Future and Jersey Values PAC which count Goldman Sachs, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and a host of capital management companies as some of their biggest contributors.

“Josh needs to return the money he promised local voters he would not take. He can argue and deny all he wants, but he has failed to put the people above the special interests and party bosses in these first nine months,” said Ted Howze, the leading Republican candidate to replace Democrat incumbent Josh Harder.

While incumbent Congressman Josh Harder may be six years younger than the video game PAC-MAN (Harder was born in 1986 and PAC-MAN launched in the U.S, in 1980), he has certainly become very good at playing the game.
