' to 'Expose, Confront'
Hillary Clinton Record, Proposals

NEW YORK, Dec. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- A newly created Internet project was launched today to ``subject First Lady Hillary Clinton to unprecedented and sustained scrutiny'' as she embarks on her candidacy for the U.S. Senate in New York State. The Internet site, which you can log onto at , is ``intended to expose Mrs. Clinton's past record, confront her misguided policies and curtail her future political ambitions,'' according to Jeff Larson, the interim coordinator of the project. He said that Mrs. Clinton's public statements over the past two weeks that she will announce her Senate candidacy early next year ``means that we must intensify and accelerate efforts to hold her accountable and ensure that New Yorkers are fully-informed about the inadequacies of Hillary Clinton's record and proposals.''

In addition, Larson said the project organizers are ``responding to a growing concern among conservatives and Republicans who are wary and suspicious that Mrs. Clinton's candidacy is a political facade for a much more ambitious agenda.'' He said that Mrs. Clinton's nationwide fundraising endeavors, including high dollar events in several major cities, have made ``it necessary and legitimate to conduct a nationwide effort to confront her candidacy and expose Hillary's liberal, unacceptable tendencies. Our contention,'' he said, ``is that while New York voters have a direct interest in seeing that Mrs. Clinton is defeated, there also is a prevailing national interest in setting the Hillary record straight and curtailing her future political explorations and ambitions.''

He said that ``does not intend to intrude on New York politics.'' The NotHillary effort, Larson added, is a special project of a Coalition for a Better America and will undertake a national fund-raising drive to support the Internet site and related projects. He said ``the First Lady's continuing efforts to advocate national policies, as well as her coast-to-coast fund-raising efforts, have elevated her candidacy and the New York Senate campaign to national prominence. We are launching a nationwide grassroots effort to confront her record and campaign proposals.'' One of the project goals, Larson said, will be ``to hold Hillary Clinton accountable and responsible, which will be a new experience for her and her husband. Now is the time to end the Clinton political careers and to expose the myth and insanity that they have the right answers for the nation's future.

``We just want to help assure that New Yorkers are aware of the failures and fallacies of Hillary Clinton's record and some of the ridiculous, irresponsible policies she is embracing,'' Larson said. ``We also want to ensure that the New York race is her last political exploration -- not a stepping-stone to expand her political agenda and encourage her possible fantasies about a possible White House bid.''

Larson described the Clintons as ``the most resilient political couple in the nation today who have succeeded in 'spinning' the American taxpayers for too long. It would be a serious mistake to underestimate their stealth intentions or what their grand plans are to advance Hillary's political career and their liberal policies. The supporters are committed to curtail and terminate the Clinton ambitions,'' said Larson, who added that the Internet project is ``prepared to monitor and confront Mrs. Clinton beyond the Senate race. Regardless of what happens in the New York Senate race, it's very unlikely that she will just fade away.'' He added, ``the real problem with Mrs. Clinton is that, as long as she has a carpetbag and somebody else to write the checks to underwrite her ambitions, she could be running for some other office in a neighborhood or state near you in the future.''

Larson said will create ``a watchdog organization to focus on the facts about the policies Hillary Clinton is advocating and to confront her when she engages in falsehoods and distortions or makes outrageous and unacceptable promises in the upcoming Senate campaign. If Hillary had just the forums and platforms that will be available to her as a former First Lady, it would give her more than enough exposure for her ill-conceived ideas, philosophies and theories,'' he said. ``But, to have her in the U.S. Senate where she can actually introduce and vote on proposals that will affect all Americans, as well as providing a forum for her future ambitions is unacceptable and intolerable.''
