Joe Sestak Launches Doggy Doo Attack Ad

(Gateway Pundit) - The most offensive ad of the year…

Pelosi-Democrat Rep. Joe Sestak actually flings dog sh*t at Pat Toomey in final attack ad of the year. Classy Joe, real classy.

Townhall reported on Toomey’s response:

In his final push against Republican Pat Toomey in the Pennsylvania Senate race, an advertisement from Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak features a bag of feces collected from his family dog. Sestak swings the bag into the trash can, and equates it with the policies of his opponent.

Toomey’s response to this ad is more moderated at a recent campaign event in Sewickley, Pennsylvania. With that advertisement as the baseline, though, it’s hard to think of a response that wouldn’t seem measured.

“The DCC is spending more money attacking me with lies and dishonest ads than they have in any other state,” said Toomey. “That’s how badly they want to win this race.”
