I’m seeing some folks comment that it’s reaching a bit – that the comparison is not accurate. And you might say that his radical agenda is fodder enough for any ad so why go for the John Doe investigation which will conclude in an unknown way.
Honestly, I find myself loving it.
Here’s the Wisconsin Dems statement on their ad:
“Our thirty-second television spot notes the similarities between the Watergate scandal that resulted in Richard Nixon resigning in disgrace, and the vast criminal network being uncovered by the ongoing John Doe criminal corruption probe,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Monday. “This ad will run in multiple markets across Wisconsin and will represent a rolling-buy supported by the small-dollar donations that have sustained our effort — in stark contrast to the sleazy piles of corporate cash on which Walker relies and, ironically, which highlight our belief that at the core of our “Walkergate” scandal is the idea that rules need not apply.”
