Kratovil airs ‘quite misleading’ ad

If this is the way that Frank Kratovil is going to run his campaign to keep his House seat away from Andy Harris from here on out, expect it to be a nasty battle – but count on it being a campaign which hides some of the key facts.

An ad that’s so far only been seen on the internet claims that Andy Harris supports a 23% sales tax increase. But when even – hardly a friend of the conservative movement – cries foul on a similar advertisement, you know you’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel. Yet the Kratovil campaign is standing behind the statement made in the ad.

(continued on my page…)

By the way, here’s the ad Kratovil did:

And the original AFSCME ad, as shown on

It also leads to a coordination question, but I’ll leave that for another day. Suffice to say that the commercial isn’t exactly above board – then again, that’s how Kratovil ran his last campaign too.

  1. That commercial is a flat-out bald-faced lie and they damned well know it. Correct me on the ammendment number if I’m wrong (I am no Constitutional scholar by any means), but the Fair Tax would only go into effect if, among other things, the 14th ammendment is repealed, the IRS is abolished, etc. The tax would not be on top of existing taxes, it would REPLACE existing taxes. Of course, Kratovil can’t be bothered with little details like the truth.

  2. 16th Amendment. Another question is about coordination since those two commercials seem eerily similar. I’m sure there’s a link somewhere between AFSCME and Kratovil’s campaign.
