The Republican National Committee called out Pennsylvania Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman on Wednesday for lying about his views on crime.

Fetterman says in a new ad that Mehmet Oz’s claims about him supporting the release of a third of Pennsylvania’s prison population have been “proven false,” but the RNC brought the receipts, reminding the Democrat of 11 times he's on video advocating for just that.   

  1. 2020: Fetterman said “1/3 of the prisoners in PA state prisons” could be released and “we wouldn’t be any less safe.”
  2. 2020: Fetterman again said "we could release a third our inmates and not make anyone less safe.”
  3. 2020: Fetterman tweeted “we absolutely must” “reduce our prison population by 1/3.”
  4. 2020: Fetterman excitedly claimed Pennsylvania “could release a third of our inmates.”
  5. 2020: Fetterman tweeted “we could reduce our state prison population by 1/3.” 
  6. 2020: Fetterman tweeted “we could relaxes [sic] 1/3 of our inmates, make us *no* less safe.”
  7. 2020: Fetterman said “I agree … we could reduce our prison population by a third and not make anyone less safe in Pennsylvania.” 
  8. 2020: Fetterman said “we could reduce our prison population by a third.”
  9. 2020: Fetterman told Pennlive “the state could cut its inmate population by one-third.” 
  10. 2020: Fetterman said “we could release a third of our prison population and not make us any less safe.”
  11. 2021: Fetterman “I agree … we could release one-third of our inmate population and not make anyone less safe.”  (RNC)

Releasing one-third of Pennsylvania's prison population would amount to 12,000 convicts.
