The Senate Conservatives Fund, an outside group working to unseat some Republican incumbents, is out today with a new web ad hitting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
The Web commercial, exclusively obtained by ABC News, is titled Bully and draws parallels between the Kentucky Republican and last years IRS scandal, in which tea party and conservative groups were given extra scrutiny on their tax-exempt applications, saying he too is bullying conservatives.
The ad comes just one day after McConnell introduced legislation that would prevent the IRS from enacting regulations that would restrict the way some of these groups, from both sides of the aisle, engage in political activity.
The SCF is actively working to elect McConnells primary challenger, Matt Bevin. SCF says it is putting $100,000 behind the Web ad and that it is also going to send it to its email list of 1 million across the country.
Watch the Ad Here
SCF is an outside grassroots group that is not affiliated with the Republican Party or its campaign committees, but it is promoting conservative candidates and working to unseat some GOP incumbents. They have already put $1.2 million in the McConnell race.
Bullying. Threats. Intimidation, the narrator reads over footage of former IRS director Lois Lerner testifying before Congress before moving to images of McConnell. The IRS? No. Try Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican Leader. Thats right. Mitch McConnell is trying to bully and intimidate conservatives just like the IRS is.
The video claims McConnell is trying to silence conservatives and that he tried to intimidate conservative Matt Bevin to stop him from running.

Such great “leadership” from the cave in party. Cave in leaders like bonehead, cantor and McConnell have got to go.
Yesterday bonehead and cantor said the they were not going to support a budget deal unless blah,blah, blah then 33 minutes later they caved.
This type of incompetence is not taught or aquirered through experience it is something that comes natural as these leaders so clearly show.
Very good ad.
“Want to vote like a democrat, then join the democrat party.”
“Want to bully like the IRS, then find a job with the IRS.”
My sentiments exactly.
