The National Republican Congressional Committee has waste no time pouring on Rep. Annie Kuster and her considerable tax issues (or lack thereof), using Monday morning to release a 30-second web ad taunting the lobbyist to congresswoman.
Turning her own words against her, the ad replays a shot of a campaign TV spot in which Kuster decried Congress for “living by their own set of rules,” with a narrator following that up by saying “after just one month, she fits right in.”
Last week, the news finally broke that Kuster owes almost $11,000 in late fees for property taxes. The revelation has sparked a barrage of criticism and drawn early speculation on potential 2014 opponents.
“It is just the first hint of what might be to come for Kuster, a freshman in a district that has a recent history of swinging back and forth between Republican and Democratic representatives,” reads WMUR’s report of the NRCC ad’s release.
