Kendrick Meek's new ad: Jeff Greene is a 'flat-out liar'



Kendrick Meek's new TV ad starts out nice, with shots of President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton, but then turns dark real fast with attacks on Jeff Greene. But Meek is bending the truth himself with the attack on credit default swaps. Some background here from PolitiFact. See jump for Greene's response.

"Kendrick Meek continues to launch false and vicious attacks against Jeff Greene because he doesn't have a record to run on - he's a failure. He hasn't passed one single bill in 8 years, but he has given himself 3 pay raises and uses tax payer dollars to lease a $977 per month SUV. Warren Buffett has rebuked Kendrick Meek for his lies. Kendrick Meek's lies and false claims won't create one single job for the millions of Floridians who have lost their jobs while Meek was in Congress."
