Card Check: Welcome. Welcome. Now Dance!

From Politico, “Labor presses Specter on EFCA,” video and the script of a new ad by American Rights at Work airing in Pennsylvania targeting Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA). The script:

Pennsylvania backed Specter when he was the deciding vote for President Obama’s stimulus package. It’s already bringing new jobs. Specter usually does the right thing. Two years ago; he supported the Employee Free Choice Act, to help working people join together for fair pay and benefits. So now, where will Specter stand? With Obama, Biden, and the working families of Pennsylvania… Or with greedy CEOs, and Big Business lobbyists? Call and Tell Specter Pennsylvania’s for him…..As long as he’s for the Employee Free Choice Act.

Subtle people, these American Rights at Work operatives. Although we’re disappointed the union front group decided to illustrate “Greedy CEOs and Big Business lobbyists” with grainy photos of Wall Street buildings. Couldn’t they have found a George Grosz caricature or something more evocative?

American Rights at Work… American Rights at Work…. They were in the news recently. What was it? Oh yes, “Labor Advocate to Join Biden’s Middle-Class Task Force.” You would think Mary Beth Maxwell would want nothing to do with the the Middle Class Task Force.
