Donkey Ad Watch: New Feingold Spot

In 2010 Midterm Elections, Donkey Ad Watch, Politics on July 13, 2010 at 7:56 pm

We posted on this race a few days ago here.

And an update from Think Progress on Feingold’s opponent, Ron Johnson, and a sampling of the lunatic positions this man has taken which his Republican allies can’t quite fathom:

“He (Johnson, e.d.) has been criticized recently for opposing an anti-sex offenders bill, the Child Victim Act, and for saying that he is “glad there’s global warming.” Last month, when asked if he would support drilling for oil in the Great Lakes, Johnson — who owns more than $100,000 in BP stock — replied, “I think we have to, get the oil where it is.” At a town hall on Wednesday in Howards Grove, Wisconsin, ThinkProgress asked Rep. Tom Petri (R-WI) — who was sporting a Ron Johnson for Senate bumper sticker — if he agreed with Johnson’s support for Great Lakes oil drilling. Petri said he personally hasn’t supported Great Lakes drilling, but seemed genuinely baffled by Johnson’s radical views, and refused to comment.”

UPDATE: The Raw Story reports that Ron Johnson owns at least $116,000 in BP stock here:

Ron Johnson, a leading Republican challenger for Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate seat, owns at least $116,000 in BP stock plus substantial shares in two other oil companies. Recently released campaign finance documents show the Oshkosh businessman has between $116,000 and $315,000 in BP PLC stock.
