YourErie.com reported that an anti-Trump political campaign ad running in Pennsylvania fails to be truthful.

At issue is Mark Graham, who said the following during the campaign spot:

“I voted for Donald Trump in 2016 because I thought he would make a difference. Did he make a difference, not for the better.”

The TV station reported that according to records at the Erie County Courthouse, Graham did not vote at all in 2016.

Ann Grunewald, vice-chair of the Erie County Republican Committee, told the station, “you can’t believe everything that is said because its people looking for some fame and they lie. It’s like on Judge Judy, everybody swears to tell the truth and they lie. Excuse me, stop it.”

YourErie reached out to Graham for comment, but he did not make himself available.

The ad is from American Bridge 21st Century PAC.
