Doherty's Tough New Attack on Cicilline

Republican Congressional hopeful Brendan Doherty is out with a new ad, "The Cicilline Cover Up," attacking Congressman David Cicilline for misleading voters about Providence's finances.

This is a tough ad - ominous music, dark skies, the words "incompetent, irresponsible, deceitful" flashing up on the screen at the end. Then, the kicker from a deep-voiced announcer: "we just can't reward that kind of deceit."

That, to me, is the crux of the argument against the incumbent: you may agree with Democrats on the issues, but what does it say about Rhode Island if we allow him to get away with a Big Lie?

What is more important, the ad seems to ask: Medicare or the truth? It's not an easy question.
