Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today released a new ad, “Madigan-Machine Politician,” in Illinois’ 6th Congressional District. The ad describes Sean Casten as a Madigan-machine politician who is ready to raise taxes on Illinois families. The ad will run on television in the Chicago media market and on digital platforms throughout the district.
“As a CEO, Sean Casten lined his own pockets with corporate welfare, now he’s a Madigan-machine politician who is ready to raise taxes on Illinois families,” said Michael Byerly, CLF spokesman. “Casten says he’s open to a $32 trillion government takeover of health care that would rob from Medicare and almost double the debt. Shady Sean Casten is wrong for Illinois families.”
In addition to the ad campaign, CLF previously opened a field office in Illinois’ 6th Congressional District. Each CLF field office is supported by a full-time staffer and hundreds of interns and volunteers who engage with voters on a daily basis through hyper-targeted phone banking and door-to-door canvassing.
Paul Ryan, a fascinating example of the Wisconsin invertebrate weasel.
The spot is money on the nightstand for Roskam, who greased through Ways and Means the fiscally-indefensible, deficit-busting, GOP-donor tax break that stuck it to his own suburban-homeowner constituents.
Enjoy peddling yourselves for money on K Street, boys.

It’s nothing but lies, innuendo and half-truths twisted to make Sean Casten appear to be the devil himself. In other words, typical national political garbage.
Will it be effective? Probably, if people really are morons and will believe anything. More likely, it’ll just be more background noise that makes everyone wish it was November 7th already while they change the channel.
