‘Stain’ Ad Against Rehberg Aimed at 5 Others
Clean Energy Vote
A clever attack ad against U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg, blasting him for his vote against the American Clean Energy and Security Act, is in fact running in five other states against Congress members there. The Rehberg ad says it's paid for by the Montana Conservation Voters, while other ads are paid for by the national League of Conservation Voters, Sierra Club and others. According to Ben Smith's POLITICO blog, the ads are also running against Reps. Michele Bachmann, John Boehner, Lee Terry, Blaine Luetkemeyer, Roy Blunt and Jason Altmire. All of which explains why the dude in the commercial lacks Rehberg's mustache – a detail that threw me the first time I saw it.

Here's the ad against Rehberg:

And here's the ad against Blunt:

It’s good to see that progressive political activists are turning up the heat against Rehberg.  Montana deserves a better representative in Congress than Denny.
