Rick Boucher Runs Ad Attacking a Bill He Voted For!

Democrat Rick Boucher ran a 30 second ad, which in part attacked the Cap and trade bill, which will hurt the economy, and especially the 9th district. One problem, he voted for it! In response, Boucher's Republican opponent, Morgan Griffith told the Roanoke Times:

"It's clearly deceitful for an ad to suggest that Congressman Rick Boucher opposed coal-killing Cap and Trade legislation, when he in fact voted for it," Griffith, of Salem, said in a news release. "Cap and Trade will destroy the coal industry, raise electric bills and send more American manufacturing jobs overseas to China."

Maybe he was for it, before he voted against it..
