DOUG OSE RELEASES HYPOCRITICAL NEW AD, DESPERATE TO DISTRACT FROM OWN PARTISAN RECORD OF PUTTING SELF, WALL STREET OVER MIDDLE CLASS

Former Congressman Doug Ose is out with a new ad that is full of misleading claims but short on accomplishments because he doesn't want to talk about his failed record in Congress.

"Former Congressman Ose voted with his political party a shocking 94% of the time and turned a record surplus into a record deficit," said Bera spokesperson Allison Teixeira. "It's no surprise that Congressman Ose is desperate for Sacramento County voters to forget his partisan record of putting politics ahead of people and helping himself at the expense of middle class families."

OSE AND FRIENDS STEP UP DISHONESTY IN NEW ATTACK ADS

Washington D.C. interest groups continue to try to prop up former Congressman Doug Ose, who is desperate to distract from his record, by running deceptive attack ads against Dr. Ami Bera. The latest from the National Republican Congressional Committee’s (NRCC) is particularly outrageous in its attempt to distort Bera’s clear record of championing No Budget No Pay, a law that says if Congress doesn't do its job, members shouldn't get paid, and of voting for the bipartisan Murray Ryan Budget agreement.

Endorsement: Rep. Ami Bera has earned a second term against worthy opponent Doug Ose

By the Sacramento Bee Editorial Board

A physician and former academic, Democratic Rep. Ami Bera never will be a smooth politician.

His Republican challenger, former Congressman Doug Ose, showed during their one and only debate last week that he can be more comfortable before an audience. But Bera is thoughtful, hardworking and has displayed a willingness to be bipartisan. For policy reasons and for the region’s future, Bera deserves to be returned to Congress for a second term.

OSE TOUTS ROLE IN CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM WHILE BEING BACKED BY MILLIONS IN OUTSIDE SPENDING, LATEST FROM LOBBYIST FOR SAUDI GOVERNMENT

In this week's debate, former Congressman Doug Ose touted his support for McCain Feingold campaign finance reform legislation, but he has no problem relying on his own personal wealth and more than $7 million in outside spending from Washington D.C. special interest groups to prop up his candidacy, including one headed by a lobbyist for the government of Saudi Arabia. At least $2 million in spending from shady conservative attack groups has been announced just in the two days since the debate.

NEW AD HIGHLIGHTS BERA'S RECORD OF PROTECTING SOCIAL SECURITY, OSE'S RECORD OF GAMBLING SOCIAL SECURITY ON WALL STREET

The Bera for Congress campaign released its third TV ad of the 2014 general election today, a 30-second commercial called "Security."
 
The ad highlights the clear difference between Dr. Bera, who has kept his promise to refuse his Congressional pension until Social Security and Medicare are secure for this and future generations, and his opponent, former Congressman Doug Ose, who voted to privatize Social Security and gamble seniors' retirements on Wall Street, helping his own bottom line.
