“I’m a born free American woman. Wife, mother, and citizen. And I’m telling my government that you’ve forgotten your place. It’s not your responsibility to look out for my well being and to monitor my speech. It’s not your right to assert an agenda. Your post, the post that you occupy, exists to preserve American liberty. You’ve sworn to perform that duty, and you have faltered…”
-Becky Gerritson Congressional testimony (June 4, 2013)
A citien who stood up to the IRS when they abused their powers is ready to be a member of Congress to stand up to the Establishment who is failing to use their powers.
Meet Becky Gerritson:
A year later, Becky’s national involvement led to national attention. A primary target of the IRS scandal, she was called upon to testify regarding the abuses before Congress. Her heartfelt, passionate, and articulate testimony not only drew attention to the sins of the IRS it also put voice to the frustration felt by many Americans toward a government that had far outgrown what it was intended to be. Becky’s words inspired the masses and have served as a galvanizing force for the movement.
Passionate about teaching and educating Americans as well as standing for conservative principles, Becky has continued to oppose Common Core, fight the IRS, and stand for limiting the role of the federal government like the Founders intended.
Now, Becky sees the dysfunction in Washington and the failure of the Establishment and feels compelled to step forward. A concerned citizen, wife, and mother Becky is NOT a politician. This Born Free American Woman stands ready to serve the people of Alabama in Congress.
Becky Gerritson is challenging Surrender Caucus Rep. Martha Roby, who has the disgraceful record of an F-rating from LLPH while representing a R+17 district. Roby supported the Ryan-Murray Budget, the $1 Trillion Omnibus Bill FY 2014, and the CRomnibus, which surrendered the majorities we had just acquired in the 2014 elections. Rep. Roby has also been a strong opponent of the Penny Plan, being one of the few members to vote against every single Penny Plan amendment.
Becky Gerritson has been endorsed by our allies at Eagle Forum, Conservative HQ, and conservative leader Erick Erickson.
Eagle Forum’s leader Phyllis Schlafly stated in their endorsement,
“For example, since coming to Congress, except for the most recent (December 2015) as she faces a primary challenge, Roby has voted for every omnibus spending bill, including the CRomnibus in December 2014 that funded Obama’s amnesties. Most disturbing is her vote – along with every Democrat in the House and Senate – for final passage of the “Every Student Succeeds Act,” the latest overhaul of the American education system which has been criticized by informed conservative academicians as ‘Common Core on Steroids.’
“I first heard of Becky after she gave a compelling testimony to Congress when it was discovered that the IRS was targeting specific groups for their political beliefs. Her testimony inspired thousands when she courageously told government to get back in its place.
“Becky is a proven leader. She understands that sound governance doesn’t mean just passing bills that the president will sign, as the current Congress continues to do. She knows that sound governance means upholding and defending the Constitution, protecting the security of the American people, and defending the values that have made our country great. Her dedication and passion for the conservative cause has been seen not only by Alabamians but by the nation as she has fearlessly and tirelessly fought against the progressive agenda and big government.
Becky Gerritson will not be a member of the Surrender Caucus. She will fight for liberty and stand by the Constitution. She will help support current LLPH Team Members, and we are proud to endorse her for 2016.
Therefore, LLPH is proud and honored to endorse a man of principle, a TRUE LLPH CONSERVATIVE Becky Gerritson for election in 2016 to represent Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District in the 115th Congress!
