New ad slams Roy Blunt for trying to cash in on 9-11 bill

A new ad by Majority Forward attacks Roy Blunt's unsuccessful attempt to add an amendment favoring his lobbyist girlfriend's big tobacco client in the 9-11 legislation in 2001. That lobbyist, of course, later became Blunt's wife.

The ad, which accompanies this post, came from a $1.3 million buy by Majority Forward and the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees.

Blunt's actions were written about in the Turner Report's 2010 post, The Seduction of Roy Blunt.
