Sestak's Sleazy Campaign Tactics Exposed

A recent Sestak TV ad has used a video clip of Senator Specter which uses a phrase taken out of context -- a phrase that sticks out and "has a different meaning in its full context" according to an investigative report by Scranton's WNEP-TV.

In the new Specter ad Gov. Ed Rendell states, "When Arlen crossed party lines to vote for the Recovery Act it was one of the most courageous votes ever. Joe Sestak's TV ad playing a fragment of what Arlen said is the worst type of politics."

The text of the new ad is below and the radio spot is attached; WNEP-TV's investigative report and the radio spot can be accessed at http://bit.ly/bHzoPo.

YOU’VE HEARD JOE SESTAK’S ATTACK AD ON ARLEN SPECTER.

“My change in party will enable me to be re-elected.”




LISTEN TO WNEP'S INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER, DAVE BOHMAN, WHO’S UNCOVERED THE ENTIRE TAPE....

BOHMAN: The phrase that sticks out has a different meaning in its full context.

AS:

[Clip of Specter]

"My change in party will enable me to be re-
elected and I've heard that again and again and on the street: 'Senator we're glad you'll be able to stay in the Senate and help the state and the nation.'"




GOVERNOR ED RENDELL’S OPINION?....

Rendell: When Arlen crossed party lines to vote for the Recovery Act it was one of the most courageous votes ever. Joe Sestak's TV ad playing a fragment of what Arlen said is the worst type of politics.

ARLEN SPECTER -- ENDORSED BY PRESIDENT OBAMA, GOVERNOR RENDELL AND NEARLY EVERY MAJOR NEWSPAPER IN THE STATE.
