The only definitive thing Terri Lynn Land has told anyone turns out to be misleading

Ouch, this has to hurt...

For several months, Terri Lynn Land has been misleading voters about her grandparent’s family business, a trailer park that land bulldozed to make room for a development project.

A biographical video located at the top of Land’s Senate campaign website refers to the west Michigan trailer park where she worked as a teenager and college student. In a sound bite, Land is featured on camera and she says: “They (the grandparents) are very proud of their family business, which still continues to this day.”

In fact, property records show that the trailer park was bought by Land and her husband 19 years ago. In 2004, the 170 families living there were forced to move and the Grandville property was bulldozed. But it was never developed or sold and it still remains vacant.

Boiled down: Terri Lynn Land claims to have spent her youth working in a trailer park owned by her grandparents that she and her husband purchased 19 years ago and that continues to this day to be a home for people, but actually what happened is that after awhile they tossed everyone out (some they paid to leave) and then bulldozed the property, which remains undeveloped today.

When you add this to the Julie Boonstra fable Americans for Prosperity tried to weave, and given her continued silence on where she stands on the issues, this means that every definitive statement made by or on behalf of the Land campaign has at some level been a lie. That also includes her soft-peddled scientific illiteracy about climate change.
