The Service Employees International Union has objected to the airing of this anti-union, anti-Free Choice Act on Arkansas TV stations. It's aimed at keeping Sens. Lincoln and Pryor in the anti-union fold on the legislation.
I saw the ad on cable last night. Of course it's misleading to the point of dishonesty. But I really wondered watching it whether it was so over the top with its hokey depiction of a heavily accented labor goon that even the average Arkie -- generally indisposed toward the labor movement -- might dismiss it as nonsense.
