Simmons Releases Second Round of Attack Ads Against Deely

New round of ads shows Deely as a puppet, Simmons touting 'promise' to constituents.

A new round of ads is hitting the airwaves later today from the Friends of Rep. Justin Simmons campaign. 

The new ads are the latest in a series of "offense" and "defense" ads run by the Simmons campaign. The first shows challenger Kevin Deely as a cartoon while talking about his time as a teachers union representative. The second ad shows Rep. Justin Simmons speaking about his record in the House of Representatives. 

"This television advertising will allow me to communicate that message in a broader manner," Simmons said in a statement released early Wednesday.

The first of the original two ads shows Simmons talking about his record on education in Harrisburg, while the second shows a smoking $100 bill as a voiceover talks about challenger Kevin Deely's time as a teachers union representative.

The Simmons/Deely race has been named a "race to watch" in a recent Politics PA article. The two just met in their first of two scheduled debates Tuesday Oct. 9 at DeSales University.

Well he did vote for the impact fee that charges a per well fee every year on gas wells. Before you even say "Oh well that isn't high enough" (implying it isn't high enough to cripple the industry) remember that PA does still have the highest corporate income tax rate in the nation, and that every one of the gas drilling companies pays that tax. Not to mention the impact fee that is in place is better then anything that the democrats were able to do, so there is that too. Also I called Simmons' office about that ultrasound bill when I heard that he withdrew his sponsorship and I was told that the bill as originally intended was much different from the bill that got published and THAT is why Simmons withdrew his sponsorship. Either way you should be happy, either way his withdrawing of support was for the right reason. He either actually DID think that the bill went too far, or he listened to the will of his constituents... Which of those entirely valid reason will you try to refute?

So how did the name Justin Simmons get on the bill if he was not in agreement? By the way, really enjoying the guessing game on my identity. In the past 5 days I have been called Kevin Deely, Mark and Sue Arnold. Sorry folks you all missed the target. I doubt any of you have ever met me but please keep it going.

I put up a photo of a Jr. Lawmaker Form that my small 9 year old little girl filled out BECAUSE of Justin Simmons. He is such a posotive influence on children. Please read what she wrote. He has helped to inspire her to help children in wheelchairs and/or children with disabilities. He is a great role model. Thanks Justin!

it seems that informed consent before making a weighty decision is good

John, it must be nice to have time to troll strangers' facebook accounts and try to determine their political affiliation. Funny thing is, if you would try a little harder, you would see that I publicly support President Obama as well as *Republican Charlie Dent. You, my friend, need to find a more productive way to occupy your time.
