U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, has been railing against the Koch brother for months, accusing them of everything from global warming to original sin. His political action committee is now making claims that earned four Pinocchios from The Washington Post.

Senate Majority PAC is running an ad in Louisiana directed against Sen. Mary Landrieu’s probable GOP opponent, U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy. Landrieu finds herself in a vulnerable position because of her support for the Affordable Care Act.

Her campaign is as desperate as the ad, which is shown here via The Washington Post, together with its commentary pointing out the lies and deceptions.

“Television stations in Louisiana should be ashamed of falling for such an obvious gambit,” The Post said. “Individual lines may be true, but the net effect is highly misleading. Surely, the standards for political advertising in Louisiana need to be higher if residents are going to have a civil political debate.”

The Post added that lack of truth has been an ongoing problem with political ads coming from Senate Majority PAC.

“This is the third time in a month that the Fact Checker has given Four Pinocchios to an ad sponsored by Senate Majority PAC,” The Post said. “That’s a pretty dreadful track record, and does little for the organization’s credibility more than six months before the midterm elections.”
