As Green Day once sang: “Do You Know Your Enemy?”

If not, we need to have a talk about the Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPac).

THEY ARE THE ENEMY of the 2018 Midterm Elections and they WILL cost us seats IF we let them.
The CLF is a right-wing SuperPAC spearheaded by Paul Ryan. It’s goal is to lie about and smear as many Democratic candidates as possible.

They have raised more than $100Million from billionaires looking to keep the GOP in power.…
Back in May, Paul Ryan personally solicited billionaire Sheldon Adelson for $30Million for the CLF. He made the pitch and then walked out of the room so that someone else could make the actual “ask”, in order to avoid campaign finance violations.…
The Adelsons have since given ANOTHER $25Million on top of the original $30Million. They are single-handedly trying to buy the next Congress for their own personal gain.…
And what has that money paid for? Lies. Distortions. Slander.

The good news, however, is that money doesn’t vote. PEOPLE DO!

But we still have to fight those lies so that people aren’t duped again.
How do we fight back?

*Donate. Even $5 can help counter their message.
*Know Your Enemy and what they're saying. If someone repeats a CLF lie, correct them.
*Call them out on their Twitter (@CLFSuperPac) and Facebook (…) accounts, but do NOT amplify them.
In #NY19, the CLF has issued racist attacks against Antonio Delgado for <gasp> releasing a rap album 10 years ago. A disgusting scare tactic in this majority white District.…
In #VA07, the CLF used ill-gotten information to spread lies about Abigail Spanberger and her service to this country.…
In #KY06 the CLF used a “random” woman in their ads to lie about Amy McGrath. This “random” woman just so happened to work for Mitch McConnell and just so happened to have a racist social media history.…
In #ME02 the CLF lied about Jared Golden’s voting record.…
In #NE02 the CLF lied about Kara Eastman’s stance on the tax cuts for the wealthy (who in turn funded the CLF).…
In #KS02 the CLF lied in their ads about Paul Davis.…
In #KS03 the CLF used a “random” woman in an ad to trash Sharice Davids…and that “random” woman turned out to be a Kansas GOP official.…
In #OH01 the CLF is blowing that racist dog whistle as they try to tie Indian-Tibetan Aftab Pureval with Libyan terrorism. Seriously.…
These are just a few examples of what we are up against.

Lies and smears and scare tactics backed by $100Million.

Do You Know Your Enemy?

Ya GOTTA Know Your Enemy.
Just came across yet ANOTHER misleading CLF ad in which a random "concerned wife and mother" takes shots at Katie Porter in #CA45.

Except I did some research and she's not so random. She's a GOP operative/consultant according to her OWN LinkedIn page:…
Oh look, another pathetic CLF ad torn to shreds, this time for blatant lies about Jason Crow in #CO06.

We can’t shame them, but we can expose them.…
