AP: Johnson ad misleads viewers about 'jobs in China'
Johnson ad misleads viewers about 'jobs in China'
Manufacturing.Net - October 11, 2010
The ad uses misleading language to suggest Feingold voted for a bill on a party line that created 3,000 jobs in China. That did not happen.
The Johnson campaign says the ad is referring to a wind farm project that plans to erect 240 huge Chinese-manufactured wind turbines on 36,000 acres in West Texas. The proposal was announced last year as a joint venture between the U.S. Renewable Energy Group, Cielo Wind Power LP and China's Shenyang Power Group. The plan would create an estimated 2,000 to 3,000 jobs in China making turbines and hundreds of jobs in the U.S. installing them.
