SBOE Corroberates Story on Amie Hoeber and her Voting Record

This story is a follow-up on Saturday’s story about Amie Hoeber lying about her record of participation in primary elections at the 6th District Republican Candidates forum last Thursday.

Last night I made a Public Information Act request to the State Board of Elections to obtain Hoeber’s voting history in Maryland. This is what we received back today from the State Board of Elections:

The data obtained from the State Board of Elections is slightly different than what had been reported by the GOP Data Center and mentioned by Robin Ficker in last week’s debate. The SBOE data shows that Hoeber has voted in three primary elections since registering to vote in Maryland. Not two.

What this also shows, beyond a shadow of a doubt, is that Amie Hoeber lied about her voting record at the 6th District Debate last Thursday.

I’ll again refer you back to Ms. Hoeber’s statements on her voting record. Compare her statement on video, and then compare it to the record above.

Ms. Hoeber really needs to explain to Republicans across Maryland, particularly the 6th Congressional District, a very simple question; why did you find it unnecessary to vote in the 2010, 2012, or 2014 Republican Primary elections.

I’m sure that we’ll be as successful getting an answer to this question as I was when I asked her to articulate her position on abortion. Particularly given how much that Hoeber surrogates were complaining about the release of this information in the first place. But, as I have said previously, Amie Hoeber seems to have a casual relationship with the truth as she tries to emulate the primary season success of Donald Trump at a more local level.
