The story posted here yesterday regarding two allegedly “conservative” Super PACs running false flag attack ads against a conservative candidate, and in support of a liberal Republican has generated quite a bit of chatter.  Claudia Tenney, the Tea Party Marine mother who has had her record distorted by questionable groups, is starting to get national attention.

Earlier today, RedState Editor Erick Erickson officially endorsed Tenney, citing the false flag article and referring to these Super PACs as “coin-operated consultants” for the GOP establishment.

Via RedState:

… it is worth noting that some supposedly conservative Super PAC’s are pouring money in the 22nd congressional district to defeat Claudia Tenney. These “conservative” groups, really coin operated consultants, are accusing Tenney of being less conservative than the liberal Richard Hanna.

Claudia Tenney is actually to the right of Richard Hanna and would be a vast improvement for that district and a better vote in Congress. If you like in the 22nd Congressional District, you absolutely want to vote for Claudia Tenney. Do not let the coin operated consultants tell you differently.

Stand up for Marine mom Claudia Tenney. If you can spare some cash, help fund her as she battles the coin operated consultants of people lying about her. She needs all the help she can muster. And those of you who live there need to tell your friends and family to vote for her too.

The news of the disingenuous attacks on Tenney has riled up other conservative pundits as well.  Laura Ingraham took to Twitter to call out ‘GOP establishment hacks.’

Michelle Malkin has retweeted the article, as well as Erickson’s endorsement.

Meanwhile, despite the fact that Legal Insurrection was able to demonstrate how and why these Super PACs were distorting the truth about Claudia Tenney, her opponent used an online Q&A to complain that she was “someone who is incapable of a forthright debate about the reality of my record.”

The reality is that Tenney is to the right of her opponent on a majority of issues.  Efforts to paint her otherwise are merely distortions of that reality, enabled by two false flag Super PACs with ulterior motives.
