Former Rep. Jim Ellington takes Paul Minor to task of intentionally shading truth

I am responding to Bill Minor’s vicious attack on the GOP in the effort to win the leadership of the House (“Group’s apology indicative of how GOP took over state House,” April 26).

He used terms like “unprecedented in state politics.” How the Republicans “grossly twisted facts.” You know the saying about “glass houses?”

In my bid for re-election, Democrat PACs (Victory PAC and Justice for All Mississippians) didn’t bother to “twist facts,” they just gave the wrong “facts.” Example: they said I “voted to allow easier access to meth ingredients.” Wrong. I voted just like law enforcement asked me to on that issue.
