GOP ramps up misleading attack on Democrats' policing policy


Associated Press

As rising murder rates gain attention in U.S. cities, Republicans have ramped up misleading attacks by casting Democrats as anti-police.

DES MOINES, Iowa - When Minnesota Republican Tyler Kistner announced his candidacy for the U.S. House in April, he asked voters to ponder two questions: "What America will we leave for our children?" and "Will they be taught to hate their police?"

Across the Mississippi River in Wisconsin, Republicans in the 3rd Congressional District aired a digital ad this spring to demand that their Democratic congressman "stand up to attacks on law enforcement."

And in Iowa, a Republican governor who had promised additional checks on police conduct after George Floyd was killed by a Minneapolis police officer plans to sign a law making it harder for police to be sued on the job.
