“Trudy Busch Valentine for Senate has produced and paid for the broadcast airing of a television political advertisement entitled Despicable Attacks that contains knowingly false, misleading, and defamatory statements about Mr. Kunce.”

Independence, MO – Today, the Kunce Campaign has sent a Cease and Desist order to Trudy Busch Valentine for Senate, after she knowingly aired an attack ad that contains “false, misleading, and defamatory statements about Mr. Kunce.”

“Trudy Busch Valentine is spending her family fortune peddling lies about Lucas Kunce. She’s taking a page out of Trump’s playbook — use your inherited millions to spread lies and disinformation about your political opponent,” said Connor Lounsbury, Deputy Campaign Manager. “If Trudy Busch Valentine cared about these issues, she would’ve showed up to debate and asked Lucas herself, but she didn’t. She could have looked at Lucas’ website, but she didn’t. Her attempts to lie about and denigrate a man who served his country for 13 years as a U.S. Marine have revealed her true character – a wealthy elite hellbent on seizing power for herself. What’s also deeply disturbing about this ad is in her desperate attempt to slander Kunce, Trudy Busch Valentine also slandered Democrats like Barack ObamaClaire McCaskillStacey Abrams, and Kamala Harris, all of whom have evolved on issues like abortion, gay marriage, and legal weed. It’s an attack on any Democrat who’s ever evolved on an issue. Our campaign has issued this Cease and Desist Letter and expects Trudy Busch Valentine to take down this false attack.”
