Alan Grayson's brutal new attack ad on Dan Webster



The ad, drawn from Webster's 28 years as a state legislator, follows a previous attack that accused Webster of dodging the draft in Vietnam, which Webster says is totally false. He got educational deferments and then failed a physical, he said. A veterans group has condemned the use of military imagery in the ad.

UPDATE: The Webster campaign released a full video clip that Grayson used for the ad. It shows that Webster says the opposite of what Grayson's ad suggests.
