Rouda Campaign Exposes Michelle Steel’s Record

Aug 27, 2020

LAGUNA BEACH, CA — Today, Congressman Harley Rouda’s re-election campaign responded to Michelle Steel’s request to let her record do the talking.

Michelle Steel claims she delivered on COVID-19, but reality says otherwise. As Orange County’s top elected official, she “routinely mischaracterized” COVID-19 data, including inflating testing numbers, while questioning mask validity, and refusing to enact or follow a mask mandate. At the same time, Orange County’s COVID-19 death rate rose more quickly than our neighboring counties.

Michelle Steel also said she will take on Communist China, but her husband and business partner sold access to Trump to agents of the Chinese Communist Party, helping them gather information about our leaders and influence our election.

Harley for Congress Campaign Manager Alyssa Napuri released the following statement:

“Since Michelle Steel refuses to participate in the 48th District Debate this Sunday, we will honor her request to look at her record. It is obvious that Michelle is trying to distort the truth about her record because she knows it’s a failed one. Voters will reject Michelle Steel, the most corrupt politician in Orange County, because of her record.”
