AWC: "Sam Rasoul deceives NRA voters with Waynesboro campaign sign"

Jason over at the Augusta Water Cooler has a photo that shows Democrat Sam Rasoul's campaign sign with NRA stickers that proclaim something that is not true.

The Rasoul sign falsely sports "NRA Grade A" stickers. The NRA's American Rifleman magazine, November 2008, page 60A insert, ranks Sam Rasoul "AQ" which means, "A pro-gun candidate who rating is based on the cnadidate's response to the 2008 NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire and who does not have a voting record on Second Amendment issues."

Rasoul is challenging Bob Goodlatte for the 6th District Congressional seat. Congressman Goodlatte has a legitimate "A" rating from the NRA.

Check the American Rifleman for a complete list of NRA endorsements.
