The Daily Kos and other sources have complained about incumbant Jim Gerlach's attempt to "smear" Lois Murphy for her connection to MoveOn.org and its proven track record of hate speech at its disgraced Action Forum. We reiterate: the truth is not a smear. Gerlach's use of the following radio ad (excerpt shown) obviously didn't hurt him and may well have decided the election.
The very same Lois Murphy who has accepted a quarter of a million dollars in support tied to the radical extremist group, MoveOn.org, who has been called anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic. Jewish leaders called an ad posted by MoveOn, featuring Hitler, as vile and shameful. Both Jewish leaders and the Catholic League have demanded candidates return money tied to MoveOn, and Lois Murphy hasn’t returned one cent. Zip. None. Pretty telling about Lois Murphy, isn’t it?Lois Murphy got what she deserved for accepting MoveOn.org's support.
Named one of the most vulnerable Republican members of Congress in this election... Gerlach defeated the odds. Here are the latest numbers.. 51- to 49-percent- just 3-thousand votes separating the two candidates. Gerlach doing very well in Berks County which was considered the swing county - he picked up two more percentage points here than he did in 2004. Today- Murphy has shiedNeedless to say, thanks to MoveOn.org, a solid Senate seat in Connecticut is now Independent despite the Democrats' pick-up of several other Senate seats. It's quite likely that the Democrats would have done even better without the MoveOn.org albatross around their necks.
away from the media... but Gerlach says she did call his office this afternoon to concede.
