American Future Fund Ad - Fork in the Road - Stephanie Herseth Sandlin SD
New Ad from special interest American Future Fund repeats false attack - Mark Schauer MI
Do you notice a pattern?
American Future Fund has already spent over $4,000,000 on such Ads, this Campaign season (4th bar from the left, in the graph); $7 Million Total, according to Keith Olbermann.
They are not alone, among the many well-funded Front Groups -- out there Shilling for Billionaires!
Of course Front Groups are NOT about to let a few pesky Facts -- get in the way!
Of course Stephanie Herseth Sandlin has a "few facts" she'd like you to know about her Candidacy too ... StephanieForSouthDakota.org
But thanks to Citizens United decision, "Special interest groups outside the Democratic and Republican parties" are out-spending themselves, when compared to the previous midterm election cycle, by about 500% -- and they aren't done yet.
And GOP Front Groups are outspending the Dem Response Ads trying to set their records straight -- by a 7 to 1 margin.
Dems are being outspent by Corporate Speech. Period.

American Future Fund's Cookie Cutter Ad formula --
Get flashy graphic, and a menacing announcer;
Cut and Paste in -- the Name of the Candidate, your backers dislike and have paid to replace!
Don't Fact Check anything -- make your Opponents waste their Time and Money trying to combat your baseless accusation. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
It helps when the Same Cookie-cutter format can be used over and over again, all across the nation. That makes their "special" money -- go even further, as clearly displayed next:

20% of ALL Front Group Ad Expenditures this season are AGAINST Alan Grayson -- most of which are from out of state groups -- perhaps even out of the country. According to Rep Grayson, in this Schultz show appearance, today:
Alan Grayson is their Number One Target
This is a Spoof-Ad [or is It? ] making light of the Scare Campaign being waged against Alan Grayson:
Alan Grayson: Hates Children, Hates Seniors, Loves Satan
This is an actual Ad attacking Grayson, which is NOT quite so funny:
Isn't it amazing what bottomless, deep pockets can do -- when our Traditional Media does SO little to Call BS on this piece-meal erosion of Democracy -- occurring right before our eyes?
SOOOOO ... what can YOU DO to fight back against these tactics of the Factless, Faceless, Front Groups?
Here's one way to fight back:
Alan Grayson -- Congressman With Guts
Here's Another way:
Tell your Friends and Family to Vote too -- yes, it's that important.
Just ask the American Future Fund; or better yet the Friends of John Boehner to see what they think about Getting out the Vote.
