So we're watching the local evening news tonight before trick or treating.
I'm not really paying attention, but my 3 1/2 year old old sees a Lois Murphy (D) ad attacking incumbent Jim Gerlach.
She says "Daddy, Lois Murphy has a dirty little secret."
"She has a dirty secret. What is it?"
I have no idea what she's talking about.
But now I do.
I found the NRCC ad on YouTube.
"Veronica, I found out what Lois Murphy's dirty little secret is."
"What is it?"
"She wants to raise daddy's taxes."
"Raise daddy's taxes."
"What are taxes?"
"If she gets her way, we'll have less money. Less for clothes, less for toys, less for stuff."
*an astonished sigh*
Another conservative cemented.
I'm working on teaching her that "Republicans cut taxes and kill terrorists."
She's not homeschooled (no plans to), but you can see why liberals hate homeschooling.

PA - 6th House District
This is a bit of a revelation.
Extensive research and documentation proves that Lois Murphy, in a premeditated fashion, plagiarized her ethics reform plan and stole it from another candidate in California's 50th District.
In Lois Murphy's news releases as recently as yesterday and correspondence to Congressman Jim Gerlach, which she personally signed, Ms. Murphy repeatedly calls the stolen ideas "my ethics and lobbying reform plan" and claims that her plan "goes beyond anything proposed by either party," even though the plan was proposed two months earlier by another Democrat candidate in California. Murphy also doctored the acronym for the stolen "CLEAN House" plan to disguise who originally created the ideas, and then reshuffled main tenets of the pledge in an unthinkable and sad attempt to make the plans appear different.
There is also a 20 page PDF available that goes blow-by-blow with evidence.
That's pretty embarrassing. But it probably won't sink her candidacy. After all Joe Biden is still in the Senate.
Full Disclosure: PA-06 is my district, and I am volunteering for Congressman Gerlach.
