Remember March 11, 2014 when Senator Mitch McConnell posted a political web ad called “Working for Kentuckians” consisting of B-Roll and strange music?

When I saw the ad I couldn’t figure out why Senator Mitch McConnell would post a video like that. It seemed so out of place until I saw a Kentucky Opportunity Coalition ad called "Deserve." When you watch the Kentucky Opportunity Coalition ad called "Deserve" you will notice it includes some of the B-Roll In Senator Mitch McConnell’s “Working for Kentuckians” ad.

We all know Senator Mitch McConnell’s campaign can’t supply a friendly super PAC with video B-Roll to make a Mitch McConnell friendly ad, it’s against the law, but it would be OK to download B-Roll from Senator Mitch McConnell’s Youtube Channel. So we’re back to asking why did Senator Mitch McConnell upload a Youtube B-Roll political ad? Could it be Senator Mitch McConnell was coordinating with a friendly super PAC?

The Kentucky Opportunity Coalition’s treasurer is Caleb Crosby. Does that name ring a bell? It Should because Caleb Crosby is also the treasurer of Karl Rove’s American Crossroads, Crossroads GPS and Kentuckians for Strong Leadership.

I’ve always believed that Senator Mitch McConnell and his campaign is working hand in hand with friendly super PAC’s as I have documented here and here and Senator Mitch McConnell’s B-Roll web ad only strengthens that belief.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
