SpeechNow.org Attacks Feingold Over Free Speech to the Tune of Curb Your Enthusiasm
SpeechNow.org, which won a major victory against the Federal Election Commission in a case that came on the heels of Citizens United and expanded the scope of campaign finance deregulation, is up with a new advertisement attacking Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) in his uphill Senate re-election battle against Republican Ron Johnson. Not only does the ad take a subtle jab at Feingold for being the father of campaign finance regulations, claiming he “attacked our First Amendment right to free speech” — it also borrows the theme music from Larry David’s hit show, Curb Your Enthusiasm. A subtle attempt to link Feingold to the cantankerous Mr. David? You be the judge.
