During Linda McMahon's last Senate run the group Mothers Opposing McMahon posted on YouTube a collection of World Wrestling Enterprise videos depicting violence and sexual degradation against women and sadly, mentally disabled people.
McMahon called it acting, but so is pornography.
McMahon also donated $23,000 to former Obama aide Rahm Emanuel - now mayor of Chicago - and the Democratic Party. Remarkably, for a person seeking a high office, McMahon has no public service experience.
Christopher Shays, her opponent in a Repbulican primary for the Senate nomination, is a soft-spoken, dignified man respected by former constituents and colleagues from both parties.
He served in the Peace Corps, Connecticut General Assembly, U.S. House of Representatives, and as co-chairman of the Commission on Wartime Contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
During the last debate, McMahon's "I will create jobs" response to a question on Syria was chilling. Regardless of her inappropriate response, creating jobs will not come from repeated robotic words, but from a cohesive plan to lower the tax base on businesses that do the hiring, and cutting spending. Shays will facilitate that.
Several weeks ago, when questioned about BRAC and 31,000 jobs at stake here in Connecticut, McMahon appeared ill-informed.
We need a person with experience who has fought against shutting down the submarine base and will continue do so.
Vote for Shays Aug. 14.
