PA-12: Is Democrat Mark Critz Pennsylvania’s Martha Coakley?

Not just his general lack of charisma, undynamic personality and lackluster campaign skills, but also the sleaze factor:

The ad quotes former Pennyslvania state treasurer Barbara Hafer, a Democrat who opposed Critz’s nomination and in March said of the former Murtha aide:

“This is a flawed candidate that has a lot of ethical problems, and he’s going to have to answer to them. . . Someone can do opposition research and find a lot of skeletons in his closet.”

Trying to elect their buddy Critz, the SEIU is spending $142,000 for attack ads against Tim Burns. The special election is Tuesday, but it’s not too late to get involved. Visit, or e-mail the campaign or call 814-619-3414.
