Going Nancy Pelosi one better, Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid called for both the super PAC and Donna Edwards ad to be pulled today. Press release from the Van Hollen campaign:
“Congresswoman Edwards and the Super PAC supporting her are engaging in politics at its very worst. I join President Obama and Leader Pelosi in urging this Super PAC to pull this misleading ad. The DISCLOSE Act had nothing to do with gun control — not a single thing. I also urge Congresswoman Edwards to take down her ad that leads voters to believe Chris is anything but totally committed to ending the scourge of gun violence. These kind of tactics are just out of bounds, and they have no place in this campaign.”
Still waiting for someone to defend Edwards and her mendacious ads. . . . .
