Christine O'Donnell launches FUD YouTube campaign

Posted by STARR KESHET

Delaware Republican Senate hopeful Christine O'Donnell is running a FUD-based YouTube campaign against Democratic rival Chris Coons.

So, forget about O'Donnell's broomstick affinity for witchcraft, her issues with evolution and opposition to self-lovin'.

That's right. Because all you need to know is that Coons...is the Tax Man!

"In America...Where jobs are being lost and wages cut, in Delaware where the economy is suffering and families are losing their homes, there is one man who stood against the tide and raised taxes," intones a melodramatic narrator.

"Hide your will. Hide your lights. Cause he's taxin' everything out here. Chris Coons is...the Taxman. He [even] taxes your grandma."

Unsurprisingly, Coons spokesman Daniel McElhatton told Politco that O'Donnell was "shamelessly distorting" Coons's record.

"Ms. O'Donnell is now doing what desperate candidates do - attack-and-run negative campaigns.

"The fact she been running for US Senate for eight months and has not offered any plans on getting the economy back and people back to work is an [absolute] insult to Delawareans."
