Suburban Political Recount
U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam launched an ad blitz today aimed at destroying his opponents credibility.
Democratic challenger Jill Morgenthaler has yet to get on the air and the one-two punch of a 1 minute radio spot and 30 second TV ad threatens to define her as early voting starts next week.
The ads paint Morgenthaler as a "crony" of Gov. Rod Blagojevich who helped "convicted felon" Tony Rezko land Iraqi leases.
"That's shady," the ad says of Morgenthaler.
And to push it just an extra bit further, the ad blasts Morgenthaler for not living in the 6th Congressional District.
Morgenthaler served as Blagojevich's homeland security chief. She is a retired Army colonel who served in Iraq.
