SEIU runs from Obama, dumping $142,000 on Tim Burns ad attacks
Trying to keep is purple fingers
on the throats in the pockets of the late Jack Murtha’s constituents, the SEIU is dumping $142,000 on ads trying to defeat GOP candidate Tim Burns in Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District.
The SEIU’s ad tries to tie Burns to “special interests” because of campaign contributions.
The commercial matches up with other Democratic-aligned groups advertising in the district: it avoids any mention of the policies of the Obama administration or the Democratic Congress, focusing instead on a purely economic message that depicts Burns, a former businessman, as out of step with the struggles of working class voters.
Oddly, the SEIU ignores the fact that the SEIU is…well...a special interest.
