Ad Watch: Chris Coons is… ‘The Tax Man’?

ABC News’ Devin Dwyer reports:   ‘Tis the season of scary movies.

In Delaware, Christine O’Donnell’s campaign is pushing a spoof movie trailer they hope makes voters very afraid.

The video ad, posted HERE, uses Democrat Chris Coons’ record as New Castle County Executive to cast him as an advocate of higher taxes for average Delawareans.

Cue suspenseful music and creepy narrator voice.

“There is one man who stood against the tide and raised taxes; one man who thought that a 911 call should be taxed; one man who thought property taxes should be hiked almost 50 percent; one man, who as county executive drove New Castle County to the brink of bankruptcy…

“Hide your will. Hide your lights. Cuz he’s taxing everything out here. Chris coons is… the Tax Man.”

O’Donnell’s attack on Coons follows two recent polls that show the Democrat holding a double digit lead.  Both candidates will face-off in their first debate Wednesday night at the University of Delaware.
