This candidate's instincts appear pretty liberal. He sometimes corrects course depending on which advisers he listens to. Voters should hope he listens to the conservative advisors and not his left-wing daughter and son-in-law. See footnotes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7

To paraphrase the December 13, 2023 email blast of the Boston Broadside, Kauffman appears to be "just another of several strange candidates who appear to be running to destroy one party in Massachusetts from the inside based on the fact that she is a self-hating Jew who hates Israel and loves Jew-haters such as Kanye West, Nick Fuentes and Adolf Hitler". Unfortunately for serious conservatives, the Democrats Ending With An R after their names used Kauffman to discredit conservative grassroots reformers and the conservative grassroots reform agenda.

- SPECIFIC NOTES -
NOTE NUMBER
SPECIFIC RATING CANDIDATE COMMENT
1
We previously scored Trump as No on this metric as the 2017 federal tax reform legislation is not enough to offset the impact of tariffs and higher federal spending. Trump signed the (2017 Federal Tax Reform legislation) which cut taxes by nearly $1.5 Trillion over 10 years (good) but (which partially offset the benefits of the tax cuts on income (imposed tariffs) and signed spending bills that increased annual federal spending by $808.1 Billion (20%) in FY 2020 versus what Trump inherited in FY 2017 , of which $627 Billion (78%) went to underwrite priority Democrat programs (social programs and non-defense discretionary programs). This has resulted in federal debt increasing (by $3.3 Trillion since his inauguration) (bad 3X). Moreover, his 2021-2030 budgets are projected to add another $1.85 Trillion in annual spending relative to 2020 and $5.6 Trillion in new federal debt, before even taking into account spending to combat the Wuhan plandemic. Trump also flirted with raising the federal gas tax by $.25/gallon in 2018, at least that idea did not go anywhere, so far. We recently downgraded him to NO- when considering the soaring spending and debt in response to the plandemic.
2
We previously scored Trump as a Both-Maybe on this metric based on his issuance of DTM 19-004, which bans new #FakeGender applicants who have any history of so-called transgender medical transition treatment and opposing the misleadingly-named Equality Act, which passed the U.S. House but will likely fail to pass muster with the GOP-majority in the U.S. Senate. However, we had to downgrade Trump to Down-NO after considering his overall body of work on this issue and that the GOP itself issued a press release promoting Trump's record promotg the sexually abominable (per Leviticus 18:22). Alabama abolitionist Bill Fortenberry wrote on Facebook that he thought about publishing an article to warn Republicans about Trump's pro-homosexual record, but the GOP beat him to it. Trump has done more to promote homosexuality than any Democrat president. His actions have caused irreparable harm to the moral fabric of our nation, and the GOP is proud of that. Another factor in our No score was his recent remarks where he submitted to judicial tyranny on the recent Bostock v. Clayton County court decision (which subjects employers who fire their poorly performing homosexual employees to potentially expensive and frivolous lawsuits), acquiescing to the idea of a homosexual president, praising India's Bollywood for releasing its first movie promoting homosexuality and appointing the avowed homosexual and known Swamp Creature Richard Grenell as his acting Director of National Intelligence. Trump was a long-time supporter of the #RainbowJihad going back to at least 1999, Trump expressed his opinion that the homosexual marriage cases have gone to the Supreme Court. They have been settled. And I'm fine with that, Trump was the first GOP President to express support for "LGBT Pride Month", the Trump campaign has been selling LGBT-oriented campaign material for years, Trump appointed five homosexual ambassadors and two homosexual Judges (Mary Rowland and Pat Bumatay) and the Trump Administration is leading a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality in the 69 countries where it is currently illegal. Trump even retained Obama's "anti-LGBT discrimination" Executive Order for federal employees and renominated Lesbian Activist Chai Feldblum to serve as Commissioner of the EEOC. Trump had two Good Actions and 13 Negative Actions pertaining to this metric. Traditional moral values voters can rely on Trump 14% on the time on this issue. No wonder why the Log Cabin Republicans (a homosexual-oriented Republican group) endorsed his reelection campaign. We recently downgraded Trump to NO- (NO Negative, our lowest score) when Trump hosted the RNC LGBT Pride Coalition in conjunction with the Log Cabin Republicans at his Mar-A-Lago Resort in 2021 and 2022
3
Our standard for a YES+ rating at WikiVote on Right to Life is for the immediate abolition and recriminalization of abortion, not to make exceptions for it or to regulate it. Donald Trump floated the idea of criminalizing abortion in 2016 (good) but almost immediately walked it back (bad). Given that Donald Trump is "pro-life with exceptions" and does not support criminalization of abortion, the best we could score him as Maybe on this issue. Donald Trump opposed the Alabama Abortion Ban in Name Only law (because he felt it was too strict). We thought the Alabama law was a loophole ridden sieve that created a de facto right for women to engage in Do-It-Yourself chemical abortions via mifeprex and would have preferred the law be modelled on the OK or TX Abolition of Abortion bills. Trump signed spending bills that resulted in abortuary operators receiving $1.5 Billion in cumulative taxpayer funding during his administration, including signing one month before appearing at the March for Life (bad), which takes a lot of the shine off Trump being the first president to address the March For Life in person and contradicts the "the most pro-life president ever" rhetoric of the Pro-Life Establishment. We think that we are being generous scoring Trump, especially given that The American Right To Life and its affiliate ProLifeProfiles.com gave Trump their lowest score (Tier 4-Personhood Never) given his long and documented record of supporting the killing of preborn image bearers, because his Supreme Court picks were soft-left judicial supremacists who believe "Roe v. Wade was settled law" and because Planned Parenthood and other abortuaries (still receive federal tax dollars), even after PP withdrew from the Title X program when the Trump Administration reformed the Title X program's rules. We understand Trump being the first president to speak at the March for Life indicates that he needs the pro-life vote, but Trump has not achieved much as far as pro-life policy goes. The National Right to Life PAC and its affiliates endorsed Trump because they were pleased with his Supreme Court picks, his support for the #regulationist Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and because he made statements expressing support for ending taxpayer dollars being used to underwrite abortuaries and opposing late-term abortion. Unfortunately, we cannot ignore that abortions performed by abortion conglomerate Planned Parenthood and governmental funding of PP has actually increased under Trump's presidency. At least it is better than his March 2016 comments about "millions of women being helped by Planned Parenthood" or his interview with Tim Russert in which he said he was "pro-choice in every respect". Nevertheless, Donald Trump fails to meet our standard for YES+ or even basic Yes because he does not support criminalization of abortion to establish equal protection of preborn and born and because he is pro-life with exceptions. Our grade for Trump is generous in comparison to what the Abolitionist group Free The States would have given him (as they would have given him a F-). We recently downgraded his score from Maybe to No when Trump campaigned to the left of DeSantis on abortion in the 2024 primary after blaming pro-lifers for the disappointing electoral performance achieved by the Republican Party in 2022.

From National Review "Trump has two entirely contradictory instincts when it comes to gun laws, and he does not reconcile them particularly well. Trump simultaneously wants to be seen as doing something about mass shootings and wants to keep the support of the NRA and gun owners. This is not a needle he can thread." The Trump Administration banned Bump Stocks in the wake of the October 2017 Las Vegas Shooting. In early 2018, Trump said "Take the guns first. Go through due process second," "I like taking the guns early" at a White House event in response to the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. Trump called for red flag laws, aka Extreme Risk Protection Orders, which violate gun owners' due process as well as their right to keep and bear arms. This forced Gun Owners of America to warn Trump that he might lose support from gun owners and RKBA activists. The Tenth Amendment Center recently published an article on how federal gun control laws violate the Constitution and our Natural RIght to Keep and Bear Arms, yet the Trump Administration has actually stepped up such persecutions to levels well in excess of the Obama Administration's last year. We noted that the NRA endorsed Trump, but we also noted that Dudley Brown of the National Association for Gun Rights was one of the earliest people to recognize that the NRA has been AWOL from the fight for decades and that Trump turned against gun owners after the Las Vegas shooting
5
Although the immigration enforcement and reform by reduction group NumbersUSA gave Trump a B grade on immigration for his four years serving as President, we scored him as Maybe. The Trump administration built 458 miles of border wall (but only 52 miles were in places where they was no previous wall) before a court order blocking further construction of the wall. He signed a memo directing the Department of Commerce to not include illegal aliens in the 2020 Census results. What keeps Trump from earning a Yes or YES+ score is that he campaigned on getting Mexico to pay for building a border wall between Mexico and the U.S. but failed to keep his promise as he had to resort to transferring taxpayer funds originally appropriated for military construction and counternarcotic operations. Trump also floated the idea of a path to citizenship for illegal aliens in the DACA program in July 2020 (bad). Trump also proposed amnesty deals in 2015, 2018 and 2019. NumbersUSA President, Founder and all-around Immigration Hawk Roy Beck wrote about how the Trump amnesty-for-wall trade would once again reward previous immigration lawbreakers without preventing future immigration lawbreakers. Former Trump supporter Ann Coulter turned on Trump after realizing that Trump campaigned as an immigration enforcement hawk in 2016 but blew off his campaign promises after getting elected.
6
We scored Trump as NO- on this metric: The negative impact of Trump's actions that increased the size, scope and cost of government outweigh the positive impact of the Trump Administration's actions that reduced the role of government. The irrational exuberance of Donald Trump towards promoting the experimental COVID-19 jab gave the left the opportunity to implement jab mandates. The decision of Donald Trump to promote lockdowns in the name of 15 days to stop the spread of COVID-19 gave license to states to amplify and extend these terrible policies, to governors to wield unprecedented and draconian executive powers. Furthermore, the decision to replace real world economic activity with governmental stimulus during the lockdowns sowed the seeds for the worst inflation in 40 years. Trump signed spending bills that saddled our federal republic with $7.8 Trillion of new public debt between his inauguration and now and his future budget proposals will result in $13.1 trillion in new cumulative debt (2017-2030), signing the globalist USCMA "trade deal" which contains at least 57% of the text of the globalist TPP agreement, subordinates U.S. law to foreign law and promotes integration of the U.S. into regional North American governmental units, was negotiated by globalist CFR member Robert Lighthizer and gained the approval of the globalist CFR head Richard Haass and of the globalists at Bloomberg.com, raising the minimum age to smoke cigarettes to 21, establishing a new paid/family leave benefit for federal bureaucrats and advocating for a new paid family medical leave welfare state benefit. Trump also signed the 2018 First Step Act, which Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review has referred to repeatedly as the jailbreak bill for releasing dangerous criminals back on the street and adding to the cost of government. A reader sent us an email claiming Trump eliminated the CAFE standards (fuel economy mandate) but a closer glance at the Trump Administration's new CAFE rule shows that Trump increased the mandated fuel economy levels relative to the end of the Obama Administration though it at least increased it at a slower rate than Obama by freezing the 2020 MPG requirement from 2020 to 2026. Trump also banned bump stocks (footnote 5). Trump's August 2020 Executive Order directing the Treasury to spend money not appropriated by federal law to pay extended unemployment benefits violated the taxation and spending clause of Article One of the U.S. Constitution. Trump's 2018 Syrian airstrikes violated Article One, Section Eight, Clause Eleven of the Constitution which reserve power to declare War to Congress. We noted some good things in this metric such as the Trump regulatory reforms, the Trump Administration approving the T-Mobile acquisisition of Sprint after the Obama Administration stonewalled it. Trump earned a B grade from NumbersUSA (footnote 5) despite maintaining Obama's illegal and unconstitutional DACA Amnesty. Trump also withdrew the U.S. from the Iran deal and the Paris Climate Accord, though the latter withdrawal will not take effect until after the 2020 election.
7
Trump disparaging Ron DeSantis as Ron DeSanctimonous is inexcusable given that DeSantis spent his term as governor achieving conservative policy victories whereas Trump tweeted good rhetoric as President but turned his presidential policy making over to his leftist daughter and son-in-law. Other actions that earned Trump a NO- score include endorsing Kevin McCarthy for Speaker against the 20 House Holdouts in 2023 and Ronna Romney McDaniel against Harmeet Dhillon for 2023 RNC Party Chair, calling for conservative stalwart Tom Massie to be thrown out of the GOP in retaliation for Massie demanding a roll call vote on the $2 trillion stimulus package in response to economic shutdown mandates in the wake of the communist virus plandemic, commuting the sentence of the crooked former Democrat Governor of Illinois Rod Blagoyavich and his appointment of 2 homosexual judges, 5 homosexual ambassadors (see note 6) as well 6 Democrats and one left-of-center "independent" to his administration. Mr. Trump gave nearly $1.5 Million to candidates and causes according to the FEC. However, since his 2017 inauguration, he endorsed the ethically challenged RINO Luther Strange over the pro-family challenger Roy Moore in the 2017 U.S. Senator from Alabama primary or even the fiscally conservative Rep. Mo Brooks from the House Freedom Caucus, the RINO Hackette Cindy Hyde-Smith (35% Liberty Score) against the anti-establishment conservative challenger Chris McDaniel in the 2018 U.S. Senator from Mississippi primary, the father of socialized healthcare Mitt Romney against his conservative challenger Mike Kennedy 2018 U.S. Senator from Utah primary, the RINO Incumbent Markwayne Mullin (63% Liberty Score) against his abolitionist challenger Joseph Silk in the 2020 OK-2 Primary, the flip-flopping challenger Katie Arrington against the House Freedom Caucus Incumbent Mark Sanford 93% Liberty Score. In 2022, he endorsed the RINO Swamp Creature Katie Britt against the House Freedom Caucus member Mo Brooks. Other RINO Swamp Creatures Trump endorsed in intraparty spills include Tommy Tuberville against Jeff Sessions, Paul Cook (39% Liberty Score), Dan Donovan (26% Liberty Score), Kay Granger (43% Liberty Score), David Kustoff (56% Liberty Score), Buddy Carter (52% Liberty Score), and John Cox. He even appointed six Democrats to his administration and the Federal Reserve as well as his left-wing Independent in Name Only son-in-law Jared Kushner. He did support House Freedom Caucus member Ron DeSantis for FL Governor against his RINO opponent in 2018 and conservative favorites Kris Kobach and Foster Friess in their unsuccessful gubernatorial campaigns.
8
Diehl supported the federal tax reform, Tank Taxes for the Olympics and Tank the Automatic Gas Tax (great), but had a MassFiscalScorecard Rating of 75% in his final legislative term (average) and violated his Taxpayer Protection Pledge when he voted for the Community Benefit Districts end-run around Prop 2.5, sponsored the boat tax increase in 2013 and 2015, spoke in support of the Abington Debt Exclusion for the new Middle/High School Building and co-sponsored a bill to increase the Registry of Deeds fee to increase state spending on the Community Plundering Act (another end-run around Prop 2.5) (Bad)
9
Diehl opposed the 2011/2016 Bathroom Bills (good) but voted for the Counseling ban, expressed support for homosexual marriage, and supports transgenders in the military (bad). We downgraded him to NO- when we read about his speech at the first meeting (January 2022) of the Log Cabin Republicans of Greater Boston, a homosexual Fifth Column Trojan Horse Group. (Rumble.com Video of the speech Diehl gave at the January 2022 Log Cabin Republicans of Greater Boston meeting) We were also surprised and disappointed that Leah Cole Allen accepted the invitation to speak at the April 2022 meeting of the Log Cabin Republicans of Greater Boston given that her state rep campaigns in 2013 and 2014 were promoted by well known pro-family political operatives. Our decision to score Diehl/Allen as NO- on the Moral Values Voter Metric was reinforced when the Log Cabin Republicans endorsed them before the October 12 2022 Debate with Maura Healey, especially given the inability or unwillingness of Diehl and Allen to denounce the Log Cabin Republicans of Greater Boston organization and its President Alex Hagerty when it was revealed that Hagerty supports pornographic books in the school library forced us to downgrade them from No to NO-.
10
Diehl identified as pro-life at his 2018 Senate campaign kickoff and expressed opposition to the ROE Act (good), but said that the ROE Act codified Roe v. Wade in Massachusetts in a March 2022 interview with WAMC (bad). We note that the 2022 Democrat gubernatorial nominee is a hardcore, pro-death ghoul who earned a NO- score. As a legislator, Diehl co-sponsored the 2013 partial birth abortion ban, which carried a maximum fine of $2,000 and a maximum 5 year jail sentence for abortion providers (falling short of the equal protection for preborn and born standard for legislation), but at his September 2022 interview at WCVB (minute mark 9:00-10:00) in which he said he did not support criminalizing abortion providers, which not only shows his lack of commitment for equal protection of preborn and born, but also demonstrated that he was on both sides of this particular issue. Our Co-Founder sent an email to his 2022 gubernatorial campaign manager to see what Diehl/Allen would try to do regarding abortion and she replied that Diehl/Allen would seek to get the legislature to find common ground on removing-the parental consent age, and the post birth abortion medical care provision. See footnote 14 to see the many pro-abortion candidates Diehl endorsed in intraparty contests against their pro-life challengers.
11
Diehl earned an A rating from Gun Owners Action League, but voted for the 2017 Bump Stock Ban (H3951, Amendment 1). This led us to score him as "Yes" instead of "YES+". See footnote 14 to see the many pro-gun grab candidates Diehl endorsed in intraparty contests against their pro-gun rights challengers.
12
We know Diehl opposes illegal immigration and he and his running mate Leah Cole Allen played an important role in the Massachusetts referendum question to repeal drivers licenses for illegal aliens (good). However, his remarks about a path for citizenship raised a red flag (as it has been used as an amnesty code phrase). His remarks about finding a state solution for the national problem of immigration hurdles that keep people from becoming vital, legal citizens of this great nation conflicts with the role of the federal government in establishing a uniform law of naturalization pursuant to Article One, Section Eight of the Constitution and his remarks about how there needs to be a faster process to naturalize immigrants conflict with the need to vet existing immigrant applications for citizenship and the recommendations of the 1990-97 U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform to reduce legal immigration quotas. At the August 2022 debate with her primary opponent Kate Campanale, Allen cited legislation Diehl filed to bring some of the naturalization process to Massachusetts, even though it conflicts with the authority of the federal government to establish a uniform law of naturalization under Article One, Section Eight of the U.S. Constitution. See footnote 14 to see the many pro-open borders candidates Diehl endorsed in intraparty contests against their pro-immigration enforcement challengers.
13
Diehl supports Gun Rights (footnote 11), lowering tax rates (though he did co-sponsor/vote for a few tax increases as reported in footnote 8) and opposes giving benefits to illegal aliens ((footnote 12) but did vote for the Draconian and Unconstitutional Counseling Ban Bill. Diehl supports repealing Obamacare (good) but also supports requiring coverage for pre-existing conditions as part of a new system, opposes reforming Social Security and thinks healthcare should be a state issue (bad).

Diehl endorsed reformers for State Rep like Karen Anderson and Shawn Craig in their primaries (good) but endorsed Baker for Governor in the 2014 and 2018 gubernatorial primaries instead of his conservative challengers Mark Fisher and Scott Lively. Diehl also endorsed Mitt Romney for President over Rick Santorum or Ron Paul in 2012. In the contested MassGOP Chairman races he endorsed the Establishment-backed candidates Kirsten Hughes in 2013 and Brent Andersen in 2019 against their reform-oriented challengers (bad). Diehl's endorsement of Establishment State Committee candidates Matt Sisk and Myles Heger was particularly brazen given the time, talent and treasure that their conservative challengers invested in Diehl's campaigns. Diehl released a list of State Committee candidates he supported in the 2020 State Committee primaries that included a number of moderate reformers who he knew from the Trump campaign however its weight pales in comparison to the high level establishmentarians he endorsed for Governor and MassGOP Chairman. Once the voters of his district elected him and his wife to serve as the State Committee Man and Woman of the district, Diehl endorsed the Establishment-backed Kevin OConnor against Shiva Ayyadurai. He also condemed the conservative State Committee Woman Deborah Martell for holding Christian views of marriage. We noted he voted to censure former MassGOP Vice Chairman Tom Mountain in September 2021 when Mountain repeatedly engaging in activities designed to hurt the fundraising and recruitment efforts of the Massachusetts Republican Party, made postings on social media designed to objectify young women, and attacking a colleague for her religious beliefs.

Ronald Reagan once said that his 80% ally was not his 20% enemy. Unfortunately, Mr. Wong failed to meet the Reagan 80% plumbline when it came to voting on fiscal issues as his career MassFiscalScorecard score is 76% and ranged between 66% and 88% during his tenure serving as a state rep. Probably explains why he did not sign the Americans for Tax Reform Taxpayer Protection Pledge and why he voted for the Community Benefit Districts (aka the Neighborhood Tax (House Roll Call 362)) , the Car Rental Tax House Roll Call Supplement 351 and the Grand Legislative Tax Increase House Roll Calls Supplement 381 and 382 in the 2018 legislative session. Wong even co-sponsored the Netflix Tax in the 2019-20 Legislative Session.
16
Rep. Wong has two good votes, his 2011 vote against the bathroom bill and his 2016 vote against the bathroom bill on this metric. However, we previously scored him as No-Thumb Down due to his opposition to the socially conservative language included in the 2014 MassGOP Platform and his votes for the 2018 and 2019 votes to ban Reparative Therapy. We further downgraded his score to Thumbs Down_NO- (NO Negative) due to his sponsorship of the graphically invasive sex-ed curriculum.
17
We previously scored him as Thumb Down-No due to his opposition to the socially conservative language included in the 2014 MassGOP Platform. We downgraded his score to Thumbs Down_NO- due to his co-sponsorship of the 2019 House version of the Doctor-Assisted Death bill. We are aware he also co-sponsored H3320 (the house version of the ROE Act, aka the Infanticide Bill) before writing to the clerk to request the removal of his name as a co-sponsor (#BlessHisHeart) in response to pressure from the activists of the Renew Massachusetts Coalition. Nevertheless, his co-sponsorship of the Doctor-Assisted Death bill, as well as his 70% Planned Parenthood Score and his votes to give state aid to abortuaries to replace the federal Title X cuts when he voted for H3638, for the ACCESS Act (aka the Insurance Coverage for Abortifacients Act) and votes for the PATCH Act (aka the Secret Abortions Act), and the NASTY Women Act (which resulted in Massachusetts legislatively decriminalizing abortion even if the supreme Court of the United State ever overturned Roe v. Wade) keep him at NO-.
18
Rep Wong voted for the Big Three Gun Grabs passed by the legislature since the beginning of 2014 (the 2014 DeLeo-Peterson Gun Grab, the 2017 Bump Stock Ban and the 2018 ERPO Red Flag Gun Grab). At least he voted against the 2023 H4135 Gun Grab
19
Wong voted against Lyons's 2018 immigration enforcement amendment. At least he voted against giving illegal aliens drivers licenses in 2022.
20
Based on Wong voting for tax increases (footnote 15), his votes to ban Reparative Therapy (footnote 16) his awful gun rights score (footnote 18) and his vote against the Lyons immigration enforcement amendment (footnote 19).
21
Boldyga earned an average score of 88.8% from MassFiscalScorecard MassFiscalScorecard during the last six legislative sessions. However, his votes for the Community Benefit Districts Neighborhood Tax House Roll Call 362 and the Car Rental Tax House Roll Call 351 led us to score him as Yes instead of YES+ and resulted in him violating the Taxpayer Protection Pledge he signed with the Americans for Tax Reform.
22
Boldyga mistakenly voted for the 2019 counseling ban at the first roll call, but corrected his vote during the second roll call vote. We appreciate it when a politician realizes his mistake and corrects it. Boldyga also voted against the 2011 and 2016 Bathroom Bills as well as the 2018 counseling ban (good). However, we had to downgrade the values voter score of Boldyga from Yes to Maybe when he signed on to the letter calling for the resignation of the moral values conservative State Committee Woman Deborah Martell when Martell spoke out against the sexually abominable behavior of Congressional Candidate Jeffrey Sossa-Paquette. His sponsorship of a bill to decriminalize MDMA (ecstasy) and magic mushrooms is another head-scratcher.
23
Boldyga has only one bad vote on abortion since he began serving as the 3rd Hampden District's State Representative but that vote was for the 2018 NASTY Women Act, which legislatively decriminalized abortion in Massachusetts. Boldyga voted against the ROE Act, the New Buffer Zone Law and the Abortion and Sex Change Sanctuary State bill. Boldyga would have earned a Yes score if he voted against the NASTY Women Act and a YES+ score if he endorsed anti-establishment pro-life challengers in intraparty primaries instead of pro-abortion establishment-backed favorites (footnote 26). We recognize MCFL has endorsed him, but we cannot give that much regard MCFL and its parent National Right to Life OPPOSE the recriminalization of abortion, which prevents the restoration of equal justice and protection for preborn with born. See the original open letter their president signed opposing all Abolition of Abortion bills that include recriminalizing the mothers who participate in abortions.
24
From Vote Smart) Boldyga voted against the 2014 DeLeo-Peterson Gun Grab and the 2017 Bump Stock Ban (good), but voted for the 2018 DeLeo-Decker ERPO Red Flag Gun Grab and the Supplemental Budget containing the Linsky Bump Stock Ban Amendment (bad).
25
Boldyga has an 89% MassFiscal Scorecard score (not withstanding his votes for two small tax increases) and voted against the anti-family, draconian Reparative Therapy Ban (good) but voted for the NASTY Women Act and ERPO Gun Grab (bad) (See (footnotes 21, 22, 23 & 24)
26
In Intraparty contests, Boldyga has endorsed a number of high-energy moderates (such as Rick Green for MassGOP Chairman in 2013 and Geoff Diehl for U.S. Senate in 2018) against their low-energy Establishment RINO opponents (somewhat good) but has also endorsed his share of Establishment RINOs from the Democrat Wing of the Party (such as Mitt Romney against Rick Santorum or Ron Paul in the 2012 Presidential primary, Don Humason against Mike Franco in the 2013 Special State Senate Election primary (see OCPF donations below), Susie Whipps against Karen Anderson in the 2014 MassGOP 2nd Franklin State Rep primary and Charlie Baker against Scott Lively in the 2018 gubernatorial primary). Boldyga also gave $200 to Baker in 2015 (see OCPF link below) one year after he defeated the anti-establishment conservative Mark Fisher (bad). Boldyga and his wife also gave $1,900 to candidates and causes (other than his own campaign) according to the OCPF.
27
DeCoste earned an average score of 85% from 2015-present (from MassFiscalScorecard) and 100% from (Citizens for Limited Taxation during the 2016 and 2018 legislative sessions. However, his votes for the Community Benefit Districts Neighborhood Tax (House Roll Call 362) and the Car Rental Tax (House Roll Call 351) led us to score him as Yes instead of YES+. We pondered downgrading his fiscal score from Yes to Maybe in 2019 in response to his co-sponsored the streaming services tax but retained his Yes score in response to his active efforts against the TCI Tax, his vote against the gas tax increase, his vote against S2500/H4912, which included a new Carbon Tax and his 2020 signing of the Americans for Tax Reform Taxpayer Protection Pledge. In the 2023-24 legislative session, we were concerned about his co-sponsorship of the 2023 Streaming Services Tax H74 and his vote for the bloated FY 2024 spending bill, which results in him breaking the ATR Taxpayer Protection Pledge, but noted that he was one of four legislators to vote against the bloated Democrat spending binge known as the FY 2025 budget and that he voted for a $700 Million/year tax cut package in 2023.
28
We had to downgrade the values voter scores of Rep Boldyga, Rep David DeCoste and Rep Berthiaume from Yes to Maybe when they signed on to the letter calling for the resignation of the moral values conservative State Committee Woman Deborah Martell when Martell spoke out against the sexually abominable behavior of Congressional Candidate Jeffrey Sossa-Paquette, which came as a surprise since DeCoste got a perfect score on the 2014 VoteCoreValues Questionnaire and voted the right way against pro-homosexual legislation.
29
We previously scored DeCoste as Yes on this issue as he earned an endorsement from MCFL in his (2014), (2016) & (2018) campaigns. However, we recently downgraded him to Maybe after carefully considering his March 2019 vote to provide state taxpayer funds to abortuaries to replace cancelled federal funds to underwrite family planning activities and his July 2018 vote for the NASTY Women Act (Roll Call 409), which legislatively decriminalized abortion in Massachusetts. We noted his opposition to the ROE Act, and the abortion and sex change sanctuary bill which kept him at a Maybe score instead of a No or NO-.
30
Reps Gifford, DeCoste, Frost, Muradian and McKenna earned an A rating from (Gun Owners Action League), but voted for the 2017 Bump Stock Ban (H3951, Amendment 1). This led us to score them as Yes instead of YES+
31
DeCoste donated to conservatives like Duncan Hunter and Avi Nelson in their intraparty contests and supported McMahon against Brown in the 2020 Special State Senate Primary, Tom Keyes against Xiarhos in the 2020 State Rep Primary and Diehl against Lindstrom/Kingston in the 2018 U.S. Senate race (good) but he did support Charlie Baker against Scott Lively in the 2018 gubernatorial primary (bad). In the contested State Committee Man races, he endorsed the reformer Steve Fruzzetti in the Norfolk, Bristol & Plymouth race (February 2020 Boston Broadside, Page 6 Print Edition), then endorsed his Establishment-backed opponent Myles Heger a few weeks later. When our Co-Founder asked DeCoste about it, he said he did not realize that they were running against each other for the same seat. He also endorsed the Ethically Challenged Establishmentarian Matt Sisk against his reform-oriented, service-over-self-enrichment challenger Stephen Tougas, which surprised us considering that Sisk endorsed David's Establishment-backed opponent Lou Valanzola in the 2014 5th Plymouth State Rep Primary. UPDATE, December 2022: We had to downgrade the Supports Others score of David DeCoste to No from Maybe because although he voted for Diehl and Allen for the gubernatorial ticket at the MassGOP Convention, his signature on the letter defending the failed electoral record of the Establishment-backed Massachusetts Republican National Committee Man Ron Kaufman and his signature on to the letter calling for the resignation of the moral values conservative State Committee Woman Deborah Martell when Martell spoke out against the sexually abominable behavior of Congressional Candidate Jeffrey Sossa-Paquette outweighed those votes.
32
Frost earned an average score of 82.8% from MassFiscalScorecard (2013-present). However, he ran against the anti-establishment, reform-oriented former Worcester RCC Chairman Jim Knowlton for State Committee in 2020 and his votes for the Community Benefit Districts Neighborhood Tax House Roll Call 362 and the Car Rental Tax House Roll Call 351 resulted in him violating his ATR Taxpayer Protection Pledge, forcing us to score him as Maybe instead of Yes. His co-sponsorship of the the streaming services tax reinforced our decision to score him as Maybe on this metric as did his vote for the bloated FY 2024 spending bill.
33
Frost earned a Thumb Down_No when he voted for the 2016 Bathroom Bill and the 2018 and 2019 Reparative Therapy Ban bills. He earned a further downgrade to Thumbs Down_NO- (NO Negative) when he voted forH5090, the Abortion and Sex-change Export and Sanctuary Act and signed on to the letter calling for the resignation of the moral values conservative State Committee Woman Deborah Martell when Martell spoke out against the sexually abominable behavior of Congressional Candidate Jeffrey Sossa-Paquette
34
We're trying to figure why Mass Citizens for Life endorsed Frost for reelection in 2018 and scored him as Pro-Life considering that he did vote to legislatively decriminalize abortion when he voted for the NASTY Women Act Roll Call 409. At least MCFL adjusted the score to Mixed with a D grade in 2022 when he voted for the Abortion and Sex Change Sanctuary Bill.
35
Frost earned an A rating from (Gun Owners Action League), but voted for the 2017 Bump Stock Ban (H3951, Amendment 1). This led us to score him as Yes instead of YES+.
36
Frost would have earned a Yes or YES+ on immigration from us based on his four good votes against providing taxpayer-funded benefits to illegal aliens but his vote against the 2018 Lyons Immigration Enforcement Amendment dropped him down to Maybe/Mixed, plus we do not know where he stands on other immigration issues such as DACA, H1Bs, legal immigration quotas etc even though he serves a Republican State Committee Man. Our decision to score him as Maybe/Mixed on immigration was reinforced in 2023 when he voted for the FY 2024 budget, which included subsidized college tuition for illegal aliens.
37
Frost earned a No score primarily for his 2006 vote for the RomneyCare socialized healthcare programme. Other votes resulting in him earned a No score on this metric include his violating the ATR Taxpayer Protection Pledge (footnote 32), his votes for the Reparative Therapy Bans (footnote 33), his vote for the Bump Stock Ban (footnote 35), and his vote against the Lyons Immigration Enforcement Amendment (footnote 36).
38
As a legislative candidate, Dooner campaigned on tax cuts and cutting wasteful spending. As a Taunton City Councilor, she voted for soaring spending budgets and the 2023 debt exclusion tax increase.
39
Kelly Dooner is an admirer of the homosexual Taunton City Councilor Jeff Postell and liked Alex Hagerty's post heralding the return of the LGBTWTF-Oriented Log Cabin Republicans of Massachusetts as an organized political chapter group. Probably explains why she liked how the Log Cabin Republicans endorsed the homosexual congressional candidate J.P. Moran and the reestablishment of the Massachusetts Chapter of the Log Cabin Republicans. At least she is not a self-described genderqueer like Democratic State Rep Samantha Montano of the 15th Suffolk District, otherwise we would have to score her as NO-.
40
Based on Dooner's answers to NewBostonPost. We can see she opposes the gruesomely brutal "practice" of late-term abortion however she seems to lean towards acquiescence to court-mandated decriminalization of abortion. This is a markedly disappointing contrast to what we learned about abortion and the courts from the Boston Broadside and VoteCoreValues Founder Lonnie Brennan, American Right to Life and the abolitionists at Free the States, who have written extensively as to why the first step towards abolishing abortion was ignoring Roe and defying judicial tyranny. Like most Republican candidates, Dooner's website says nothing about where she stands on abortion.
41
Dooner gave time, talent and treasure to the Massachusetts RINO Governor Charlie Baker's gubernatorial (reelection) campaign. Probably explains why Baker endorsed her campaign. She also voted for the Establishment-backed Chris Doughty/Kate Campanale gubernatorial ticket against the Diehl/Allen ticket at the 2022 convention. We recognize that she serves on the board of a party-chartered organization (the Massachusetts Young Republicans), but our standard to earn a Yes/YES+ score on this metric requires a candidate to support conservative candidates in contested intraparty elections against their liberal challengers.
42
We found it inexplicable that Sweezey attended the first meeting of the Log Cabin Republicans of Greater Boston. At least they gave him a shiny, shiny swag pin
43
Sweezey supported the high-energy moderate Geoff Diehl against his low-energy RINO opponent Chris Doughty, but supports the low-energy Establishment RINO Jesse Brown for Congress against his anti-establishment primary opponent Dan Sullivan.
44
Timilty used to be a reliable moral values conservative (as measured by VoteCoreValues) when serving as a State Representative, but since he first ran for State Senate, he has voted for the Bathroom Bill (House Roll Call 276), the Gender-Bending Drivers Licenses (S2203), the Reparative Therapy Ban and the obscenely graphic sex-ed curriculum and href="https://justfacts.votesmart.org/candidate/key-votes/18998/walter-timilty/76/sexual-orientation-and-gender-identity" target="_blank">the abortion and sex change sanctuary bill, five horrifically anti-family, anti-traditional moral values pieces of legislation. Timilty managed to be all things to all people on the new marijuana legalization law (he opposed the 2016 ballot initiative, but voted for the a href="https://justfacts.votesmart.org/candidate/key-votes/18998/walter-timilty/101/marijuana" target="_blank">amended legalization law in 2017)
45
We previously scored Timilty as YES-Thumb Up because he maintained a near perfect voting record with Massachusetts Citizens For Life from 1999 to 2017. We are downgrading Timilty to Maybe (Thumb Up/Thumb Down) because we recently found that he earned a B+ from NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts in the 2017-2018 legislative session for his votes for the PATCH Act (aka the Secret Abortions Act), the ACCESS Act (aka the Insurance Coverage for Abortifacients Act) and the NASTY Women Act (which resulted in Massachusetts legislatively decriminalizing abortion even if the supreme Court of the United State ever overturned Roe v. Wade). We noted he at least refrained from co-sponsoring the ROE Act and voted against providing state taxpayer funds to abortuaries to replace cancelled federal funds to underwrite family planning activities. We are pleased to share that MCFL recently downgraded him from Pro-Life in their 2018 legislative scorecard to Mixed in their 2020 legislative scorecard. We downgraded him to No-Thumb Down in 2022 when he voted for href="https://justfacts.votesmart.org/candidate/key-votes/18998/walter-timilty/76/sexual-orientation-and-gender-identity" target="_blank">the abortion and sex change sanctuary bill.
46
On one hand, moral values voters should applaud MacRae for speaking out against the Drag Queen Dance on the North Shore (good action). On the other hand, moral values voters should be disappointed that MacRae and her campaign manager attended the January 2022 meeting of the Log Cabin Republicans and the June 2022 meeting of Grand Opportunity USA, a group founded by the homosexual political operative John Paul Moran (bad actions). She recognizes that homosexuality is a sin, but is hesistant to appear too judgemental against it in a conversation she had with our Co-Founder. We acknowledge she opposes the post-Obergefell mutations of the homosexualist movement as measured by her answers to the Renew MA Voter Guide
47
Muratore earned an average score of 82% from MassFiscalScorecard MassFiscalScorecard during the last four legislative sessions. However, his votes for the Community Benefit Districts Neighborhood Tax House Roll Call 362 and the Car Rental Tax House Roll Call 351 led us to score him as Yes instead of YES+ in the 2018 legislative session. We then downgraded him to Maybe in 2020 when we found he co-sponsored the streaming services tax and the excise tax on vaping products and e-cigs. Probably explains why he did not even bother to sign the ATR Taxpayer Protection Pledge (aka the No New Taxes Pledge). As of August 1, 2020, we further downgrade his score to No based on his vote for S2500, which included a new Carbon Tax. He also voted for the new tax on natural gas customers in 2022. In the 193rd Legislative Session, we take note of his votes for the bloated FY 2024 and FY 2025 budgets.
48
Muratore voted against the Bathroom Bill (Roll Call 293) (good) but voted to retain it when it went before the voters as a referendum in the 2018 general election (bad, Flip-Flop Alert). Muratore also voted for the 2018 Reparative Therapy Ban and the 2019 Reparative Therapy Ban (bad 2X). We downgraded him to NO- (NO Negative) when he signed the letter that condemned the conservative Catholic State Committee Woman Deborah Martell for speaking out against the sexually abominable behavior of MA-2 Congressional Candidate Jeffrey Sossa Paquette.
49
In 2018, Muratore co-sponsored five bills to regulate abortion which did not pass but also voted for the big three pro-death bills (NASTY Women Act, ACCESS Act and PATCH Act) that session which passed. He voted against the ROE Act in 2020 but voted for the budget bill containing the ROE Act amendment and voted for the abortion sanctuary legislation in 2022 Source: Votesmart At least he's trying to be all things to all people on this issue.
50
Muratore scored an 87% from the NRA in 2018 but both voted for the 2018 ERPO Gun Grab and the 2017 Bump Stock Ban (bad). We think the NRA lives up to their reputation for Negotiating Rights Away by giving Muratore an 87% score. He voted against the 2022 gun grab amendment, but voted for the judiciary technology bonding bill which contained the amendment. At least he voted against voted against the 2023 gun grab bill, which shows that he is able to be all things to all people on guns.
51
Vieira, Howitt, Wong, Muratore, Ferguson, Berthiaume, Muradian and Kane voted against Lyons's 2018 immigration enforcement amendment. At least they voted against giving illegal aliens drivers licenses in 2022.
52
By virtue of his weak scores on taxes (footnote 47), gun rights (footnote 50) and immigration enforcement (footnote 51) as well as his votes for the Reparative Therapy Bans (footnote 48)
53
Blog post from Weymouth community activist Bob Montgomery Thomas highlighting how Mariano lives the high-life on his campaign finance account. Yes folks, he is living living La Dolce Vida while his constituents struggle economically (due to his rubber stamping of every new tax, every bloated spending bill, every imprudent bonding bill and every draconian productivity retarding regulatory bill that #BaconHill vomits up as well as his donations to candidates who support such economically destructive legislation).
54
We previously scored Ayers as Yes-Thumb Up because he voted against the abortion buffer zone bills. We downgraded Ayers to Maybe in 2020 when we found that he earned a B+ from NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts in the 2017-2018 legislative session for his votes for the PATCH Act (aka the Secret Abortions Act), the ACCESS Act (aka the Insurance Coverage for Abortifacients Act) and the NASTY Women Act (which resulted in Massachusetts legislatively decriminalizing abortion even if the supreme Court of the United State ever overturned Roe v. Wade). We downgraded him to NO- (Thumbs Down, NO Negative) in December 2020 when he voted for the ROE Act and the Abortion Sanctuary bill in 2022. We disagreed with MCFL scoring him as Pro-Life in their 2018 legislative scorecard and were glad they corrected it in their 2022 scorecard.
