Second Out-of-State PAC Launches Political Attack Ad in Kentucky Congressional District

 AARP Kentucky clarifies again it does not endorse candidates, have a political action committee (PAC), or make contributions to political campaigns or candidates.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – In response to another series of digital advertising released in Kentucky by an out-of-state PAC, VoteVets Action Fund, AARP again affirms it did not authorize or participate in the production and release of the ads now appearing in the states’ Sixth Congressional District.

“AARP did not authorize the ad from VoteVets Action Fund in Portland, OR and did not participate in its production. AARP is a nonpartisan organization and does not endorse or make contributions to candidates or political campaigns,” said Charlotte Whittaker, AARP Kentucky Volunteer State President. “AARP has a proud history of nonpartisan voter engagement, providing voters with information on issues that matter most to them and their families, so they can make their own decisions on Election Day.”

AARP continues monitoring the misuse of its name or logo in any political advertising.  AARP is urging candidates to address voters’ concerns on issues like Medicare, Social Security, prescription drugs, Medicaid, and caregiving.

AARP does encourage its members and all American voters to sign the pledge at, be the difference in this election, and vote.
