Would a politician, especially an honorable Tea Party one, ever exploit their children for a cheap political attack ad?
If it’s Ben Sasse (candidate for the Nebraska Senate), then the answer is definitely yes.
Oh, and he really wants you to know that he and his family prays for all his political opponents at breakfast.
Even the conservative Daily Caller is a little grossed out by this guy:
[box type=”shadow”]And someone who’s willing to exploit his daughters for political gain would never do something as silly as changing his position on an issue just to get votes! Plus, the guy prays at breakfast! And probably other times too. So you know he’s completely trustworthy.[/box]
That was their best sarcastic tone.
But you seriously gotta love this guy’s hypocrisy, considering that he used to consult for a firm that’s is actually implementing Obamacare.
According to Politico, “Sasse provided early ‘strategic advice’ to former Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt’s health care consulting firm while the firm pitched itself to clients in early 2010 to help implement the Affordable Care Act. Sasse is listed, along with his photograph and biography, as a ‘senior advisor’ under the heading ‘Leavitt Partners team’ in PowerPoint presentations from April and May 2010 in which Leavitt’s firm sold its Obamacare expertise.”
But just to make sure people believe he’s trustworthy, he trotted out his kids for the cameras.
