INDIANAPOLIS – Rep. Braun told a whopping series of lies about his business in a July 17 IN Focus interview, where it seems in the wake of a recent report that every single statement he made was false, when he could have come clean about the millions of dollars he made in profits annually from Chinese parts.
FOX-59’s IN Focus aired a segment Sunday from an earlier July interview with Rep. Braun regarding his business practices after an Associated Press report broke last Friday stating that Promaxx Automotive, a brand of Rep. Braun’s Meyer Distributing that sells after-market auto parts, manufactures the bulk of its parts in China despite his claims to the contrary. Rep. Braun has struggled for months to keep the facts straight surrounding his business’ ties to China – but in the wake of the AP’s report, he set a new personal record by lying nearly every sentence.
Let’s go to the tape:
“It’s bad enough that Rep. Braun sees no problem with pocketing $18 million in profits last year alone by making and selling cheap Chinese auto parts at Hoosier workers’ expense, but it’s even worse that he thinks he can lie about it when faced with the truth,” said Michael Feldman, spokesman for the Indiana Democratic Party. “Hoosiers demand honor and integrity from their leaders, but it seems Rep. Braun can’t tell a single true statement about his business. Was the issue that he’s too naïve to think he’d get caught, or that he was too arrogant to care?”
