Connie Mack accuses Bill Nelson of spending money on coked-out monkeys
With all the reports of questionable projects getting funded by the stimulus bill pushed by Democrats in 2009, it’s no real surprise that some of them are popping up in ads against incumbents like U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, reports the News Service of Florida. And U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, the front-runner for the Republican nod to take on Nelson, has chosen to go with primates to make his point. Oh, and cocaine.
It’s shocking to see the candidate accused of immaturity – Connie Mack – airing an immature TV spot.
The official Democratic response in accurate, if unsurprising: “This ad is as childish as Congressman Connie Mack’s campaign. The people of Florida don’t care about this monkey business. Florida voters want to talk about real issues like growing jobs and strengthening the economy. If this is the best they’ve got, they are in real trouble.”
