This morning, Carly Fiorina, a Tea Party–backed political neophyte running against California Senator Barbara Boxer, a three-term Democratic incumbent, released two new ads with the same message: her opponent represents the failures in Washington and she represents change.
What’s left unsaid is what Fiorina’s disastrous tenure running Hewlett-Packard represents. The company’s stock price dropped by 50 percent during her reign , only to rally 10 percent on the announcement of her firing. And despite touting her business experience, as company CEO she laid off 30,000 employees and shipped their jobs overseas. But now she claims that, as a senator, she’ll be a catalyst for creating jobs!
Watch this new video from Brave New Films for a detailed report on Fiorina’s record as CEO of Hewlett-Packard and meet some of the people who worked for her.
