It's more than eight months until Election Day but Congressman Blunt and his friends have already started running TV ads attacking Robin. That's right: TV ads in February. What's worse - the ads are paid for by Congressman Blunt's 7th Congressional District Committee, a committee that just six months ago received $100,000 from the largest Swift Boat attack ads funder, Robert Perry.
The misleading ads they are running against Robin are a clear attempt to distract voters from Congressman Blunt's very public Washington record of reckless government spending and voting to protect the interests of big banks, big oil and big insurance over Missouri families.
It's going to take a lot of resources to distract folks from his enormously troubling record, so we can only assume that Congressman Blunt's Swift Boat friends are just getting started.
Now, we are working hard every day to make sure Robin can fight back and get out her message of bringing common sense, accountability and reform to Washington. But we can't do it alone - we need your help.
Congressman Blunt just got $100,000 of help from Swift Boat funders. But that doesn't mean we should let them have smooth sailing on their mission to attack Robin. Help us raise our own $100,000 to fight back by donating $20.10, $45 or even $100 today.
