This is creepily similar to something that came up during the 2006 Senate battle here in Connecticut.
In 2005 Scott Brown, as a Massachusetts state senator, co-sponsored a bill that would have exempted hospital personnel, on religious grounds, to inform victims of the availability of the "morning after pill", otherwise known as emergency contraception or "Plan B".
Anyone remember Joe Lieberman's stance on Plan B?
Well, there's no doubt that the Massachusetts Democratic Party played hardball with this mailer that went out over the weekend:
There's more details on Greg Sargent's blog.
And "Short-ride Brown's" campaign responded to the mailer, calling it “negative,” “flailing,” and “malicious.”
But the one thing they didn't call it was "untrue". Interesting.
