Service Employees Union Ad: Angle Makes Life Worse for Women

More
The Service Employees International Union is spending $250,000 to air a new ad attacking Sharron Angle in Nevada. The message: she makes life worse for women, from childhood to old age.

The union, which lists its Nevada membership at 18,000 workers across the hospitality, entertainment, and health care sectors, is backing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in his Senate race against the Republican Angle. The union says it is spending $750,000 to support him, including a $500,000 donation to the Patriot Majority Fund, which is doing field work to help Reid.

The ad points to Angle's stated opposition to abortion in the cases of rape and incest. Angle has expressed that opinion in radio interviews, saying that "two wrongs don't make a right."

The ad also hits Angle for her views on Social Security. On the old version of her campaign website, before it was revamped after her primary victory, Angle supported phasing the program out.
