Dan Kapanke is getting more assistance from big money groups trying to influence our house race.
A few weeks ago the National Federation of Independent Business spent nearly $400,000 on TV ads.
Last month the 60 Plus Association spent well over half a million dollars attacking Ron Kind for his vote on health care reform. How far right is the 60 Plus Association? Spokesman Pat Boone (that Pat Boone) compares the LGBT community to “jihadists.”
Now the NRCC is dropping $150,000 on ads featuring baseless allegations from two doctors claiming Ron Kind charged them to meet to discuss a bill. Undermining the doctors claims;
- The alleged incident happened three years ago
- The doctors can’t seem to remember the name of the Kind aide who did the “strong-arming”
- Kind supposedly showed up in a black Suburban, when it’s common knowledge he drives a maroon minivan with his name and 3rd Congressional District on the side
- One of the doctors has given a considerable sum to Kapanke’s campaign
Funny the NRCC would choose to go after Ron Kind’s ethics when Dan Kapanke has a huge list of violations, from his aides using state resources to benefit his and other Republican campaigns, to the $32,000 taken from a charity to improve the Loggers baseball stadium, among others.
