Liberal Senators’ Behavior Called“Shameful”

WASHINGTON – Progress forAmerica Voter Fund (PFA-VF) today announced a new television advertisement campaign in response to the liberals’ smear campaign in an effort to delay and thwart Judge Samuel Alito’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The television ad – entitled “Shameful” – will air nationally on FOX and CNN from Friday, January 13th through Friday, January 20th. The ad profiles two democrat supporters of Alito – former Attorney General Robert Del Tufo (D-NJ) and Yale law professor J.L. Pottenger.

“I’m a Democrat, actually I’m a very liberal Democrat and Sam’s qualifications to serve on the Supreme Court are unassailable,”  said Yale law professor J.L. Pottenger. “He understands that a judge is not a policy maker. I resent the political partisan attacks on Sam Alito.”

“He does not have a partisan bone in his body nor an ideological bent,” echoed former Attorney General Robert Del Tufo(D-NJ). “He would certainly be a credit to this country.”

With a substantial ad buy of almost $250,000, PFA-VF has spent a total of $750,000 – since January 3rd alone– to support Judge Alito against liberal attacks.

To coincide with “Shameful,” PFA-VF unveiled a banner ad campaign on important websites like National Review , Human Events , National Journal and a host of blogs including: Media Bistro’s fishbowl DC, Powerline, Captains Quarters, Professor Bainbridge, Right Thinking from the Left Coast Red State

The banner ad campaign will create over 13.2 million impressions by January 20th.
