From the re-election campaign of Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., comes this controversial new campaign ad, accusing his challenger, Republican Daniel Webster, of being a religious fundamentalist comparable to the Taliban:
In comments to Mediaite, a Grayson campaign spokesperson defended the ad, saying, "The Taliban is an extremist government regime that forced its crazy right-wing views on the populace it governs. If elected, Dan Webster would force his extreme crazy right-wing views on Central Florida.”
In response, the Webster campaign has fired back, calling the ad "ludicrous."
“Alan Grayson is simply trying to distract voters from his record of higher taxes, increased debt, and rising unemployment. Central Florida deserves better than Mr. Grayson’s gutter-politics and dirty mouth.”
