"Classless" Attack Ad Shows Allen West Beating Women and Seniors

Congressman Allen West's Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy set up American Sunrise PAC with his rich daddy's money, and produced the uber-tacky ad below. Papa Tom Murphy, Jr (owner of Coastal Construction) donated $250,000 to the PAC.

Note, Patrick didn't even have the guts to enable comments or ratings. Afraid of the response, Patrick?

West had this to say about the "sad state of politics":

"The ad being run against me by my opponent's family depicting violence against women and senior citizens is reprehensible," West said. "It plays on stereotypes and fear to divide Americans, and it cheapens the very real and tragic occurrences of violence against women and seniors. The American people are suffering from crushing debt, horrific tax and regulatory policies, and epic unemployment. This classless ad shows a lack of regard for the issues plaguing our nation."

This year's election has turned very ugly.
