PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM

At the height of the pandemic, Susie fought to support our families, keep the doors of small businesses open, and put southern Nevada on track to make a full and strong recovery. As a member of the Problem Solvers Caucus, she played a key role in bringing Democrats and Republicans together to negotiate the CARES Act and establish the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to give over 40,000 Nevada businesses the support they needed to pay their employees and stay afloat.

April Becker opposed this kind of critical relief, yet hypocritically took more than a million dollars in loans for her own business. Not only that, but the corporate interests attempting to take advantage of families and derail our economic progress are spending millions to elect Becker and continue to price gouge southern Nevadans.

Susie has never used her position to serve her own interests. In fact, she supports a ban on Members trading individual stocks.

Meanwhile, Becker is distracting voters from her own shady record of dodging taxes and ignoring ethics rules. While Becker led her family company, she failed to pay over a million dollars in taxes. Additionally, Becker has repeatedly broken ethics rules and federal election laws by attempting to hide her investments and income.

Susie will never use her position in Congress for her own personal gain, but Becker has proven that she is untrustworthy and will sell out southern Nevadans if it serves her.

FACTS VS. FICTION ON STOCK TRADE SMEARS

Fiction: Congresswoman Susie Lee profited from stock trades she made using insider information.

Fact: Congresswoman Lee never traded stocks. All stock trades were done by an independent financial advisor or her husband, from whom she has since filed for divorce.

Fiction: Congresswoman Susie Lee is corrupt and out for herself.

Fact: Congresswoman Lee supports a ban on members of Congress trading individual stocks. She is continuously fighting for the interests of Nevada families, not her own—unlike her opponent.

FACTS VS. FICTION ON PPP LOANS

Fiction: Congresswoman Susie Lee fought for PPP loans to benefit her husband’s company and received special treatment in the process.

Fact: Congresswoman Lee advocated for PPP loans to keep over 40,000 Nevada small businesses afloat at the height of the most widespread economic crisis in our nation’s history. Her husband, from whom she has since filed for divorce, applied for PPP loans, and the government determined that his business was eligible to receive them. Congresswoman Lee had no input in that decision, just like she had no input in the government’s decision to approve April Becker’s PPP loans.

Fiction: Congresswoman Lee had a conflict of interest while advocating for this program.

Fact: As travel and tourism ground to a halt during the pandemic, Nevada’s gaming industry hit rock bottom and 34% of workers were out of a job and needed relief. Susie joined the rest of Nevada’s federal delegation to support the state’s gaming industry and keep as many employees on payroll as possible.
