Boeing’s campaign of misinformation continues

Late last week, Boeing ran a series of ads implying that the GAO report found Boeing’s KC-767 to be the better plane against the Northrop Grumman KC-45. When in fact, nothing could be further from the truth.
In response to Boeing’s campaign of misinformation, Senator Richard Shelby, Senator Jeff Sessions, Congressman Artur Davis and I issued the following response:

Summer/Fall Newsletter Released
One of the many ways we have found to stay in touch with my constituents in south Alabama has been through the release of district-wide newsletters.
These newsletters, which are typically distributed as inserts in each of the daily and weekly newspapers in the six counties of the First District, have proven to be an effective way of providing a central source of information on the latest events in Washington.
Moreover, rather than sending these newsletters out as a mass-mailing to your home or post office box, the newspaper insert format enables our office to save the taxpayers thousands of dollars in printing and distribution costs.
My summer/fall 2008 newsletter will be distributed this week in the weekly papers throughout the First District and in Mobile’s Press-Register on Sunday. If you do not receive a copy, please call my office toll-free at 800-288-8721 to request a copy, and a member of my staff will be happy to mail one to you.
Additionally, the newsletter has been posted in Adobe format on my website. You can download it by going to and clicking on the link for my summer/fall 2008 newsletter.
I hope you enjoy reading through the articles and information provided in this most recent newsletter, and as always your comments on this and future newsletters are welcome.
My staff and I work for you. If we can ever be of service, do not hesitate to call my office toll free at 1-800-288-8721 or visit my website at .
