Skip to comments.The Brutal New Attack Ad About The Senator Who Doesn't Live In Kansas Anymore (Amazing ad)
Posted on 02/17/2014 6:29:16 PM PST by Viennacon
The ad opens with a photograph of Sen. Pat Roberts' home in Alexandria, Virginia and proceeds to a La-Z-Boy recliner in Kansas it says he rents at a donor's house. On a golf course.
Pat Roberts doesn't live in Kansas, the new web ad from Milton Wolf, the conservative doctor who happens to be President Obama's cousin, says.
Wolf's campaign gave Breitbart News an exclusive first look at the ad.
As first reported by the New York Times, Roberts established his voting address at a donor's house the day before Wolf announced his primary bid against him. He previously rented out a house he owns in Kansas to tenants. His wife is a real estate agent in northern Virginia.
Roberts pays $300 a month to his campaign donors to occasionally stay at their house and suggested to the Times he sleeps on a recliner.
After the story came out, Roberts' campaign said his recliner rental does count as a residency.
The campaign put out a radio ad pushing back, saying that people outside the state are trying to influence the election and noting that many of Wolf's campaign donors are in Texas.
However, Roberts has refused to answer questions from the media about how much time he does spend in Kansas.

All this being said, I have yet to see a more effective ad this cycle, being run by anyone. This is well put-together and razor sharp in its cutting power. Wolf has not wasted a dime, and has gotten a great result witth his ad. Of course, its effectiveness will depend on how many T.V. screens he can get it on.
But I really hope our candidates in Mississippi, North Carolina, Alaska, Kentucky, and South Carolina can do something similar.
This is a devastating ad.
This guy is Obama’s cousin??
Yes, the connection is distant though. It’s not as straightforward as just ‘cousin’ I think. Maybe something like second cousin twice removed.
That tears it. Roberts is not getting my vote. Wolf will get it.
When I wrote an email demanding an explanation for Roberts’ obamacare exemption, he didn’t even have the decency to write back and lie.
~~~After the story came out, Roberts’ campaign said his recliner rental does count as a residency.~~~
47 years is easily 25 years too many.
Question: What if Dr. Wolf was a Democrat PLANT? Saying all the right things and voting conservative until the Rats really needed him for any particular vote. They can call it a Profile in Courage. I think that the Tea Party can be easily infiltrated and our movement compromised and we wouldn’t know it. Unknown upstarts may not be the answer. Look at the ‘Libertarian” in Virginia who helped take out Cooch. We may not be smart enough to be careful. I mean Akin and Mourdock had the proper ‘experience’ -just not the brains.
Yep. He is white.
Why did the people re-elect him? No one knew?
I'd vote for a requirement that congressmen have to stay within their state 50 weeks a year and who ever proves they left even for an hour would get the congressman's forfeited yearly salary.
I want my congressman in the line with me at the Piggly wiggly and driving the potholed roads with me, not eating a $100 steak in DC with a 'K' street lobbyist...
“Question: What if Dr. Wolf was a Democrat PLANT?”
What if Dr. Wolf is just trying to fix the damage done to his family by his female cousin’s whoring around with a Kenyan layabout which resulted in her getting knocked up? There is no way to equate Dr. Wolf with either Akin or Mourdock (or O’Donnell or Angle either). He looks to be a very solid conservative candidate. The business in VA WAS a third party candidate, who, in all probability, WAS a RAT plant.
Danger in throwing in with someone about whom you know mostly nothing (you know nothing because the guy's done absolutely nothing with which any conservative can identify - or remember) but wants to gain national office because ...........wait for it, he's a distant cousin to Barack Obama, oh, and he thinks Roberts has served long enough!
Fair enough on Roberts but who is he, what has he ever done to assist in conservatives getting elected, getting pro-life bills padded, getting Defense of Marriage bills voted on, oh and how long has he actually been a registered Republican?
There are actually some great conservatives who deserve the nod after working in the KS conservative trenches but not this one!
Using your logic, I very well could be gay, but I'm not.
What the heck is wrong with your head? What makes you seek to smear someone with such a tenuous connection?
People like you really should seek professional mental help.
We conservatives would have met, heard of or known the guy before last fall.
When was the last conservative event Wolf attended before he went out to collect money for his campaign?
Really? Based on what? You have admitted you have nothing to base your concern on, save for things you admit you don’t know. However, you seem to believe you can call this guy a “phony.”
Your profile makes you out to be a GOP fundraiser. Thank you for whatever good you’ve done. However, it makes me believe you are likely a RINO sympathizer. Your support for Roberts and for what some of his votes over 47 years were tell all you gladly support a RINO. By the way, McCain has voted for some good things over the years, too, but that doesn’t mean his butt should continue to stay, either.
The Senate Conservatives Fund backs this guy.
I’ll take that over your self-professed words of your own ignorance, any day.
“When was the last conservative event Wolf attended before he went out to collect money for his campaign?”
Don’t know since I don’t live there. Roberts is part of the “old guard” in the GOP and after 47 years, he needs to go if we are to have any hope of making the GOP work. For the most part, I vote against incumbents, which is easy for me because all of them are RATS where I live.
I support Pat Roberts. This primary challenge is a waste of resources.
You support the RINO who doesn’t live in Kansas?
I think we are playing with fire with this whole “doesn’t live in Kansas” thing.
If Roberts manages to win the primary anyway... I could see the Democrats trying to take him to court over the residency issue to get him removed from the ballot, with a liberal judge saying no replacement will be allowed and the Democrat wins by default.
I don’t put ANYTHING past the democrats, especially if control of the Senate rests on this race.
it is RIDICULOUS to expect ANY member of Congress to maintain duel, full time homes in more than one location. WHO CARES? This is petty and stupid.
It is also CLEAR evidence that Roberts votes correctly, as NO argument is made about his RECORD!
47 years is 43 too many.
Robertz is a RINO and a way too many years in DC mole.
Don’t know but Roberts exemplifies a whole lot of what’s wrong.
Supporting a fake like Roberts will not go with me. If the other guy is bad, let the stuff come out on him, too.
~~~President Obama’s cousin~~~
Frankly sounds like the whole election is rigged with ringers.
After Kathleen Sebelius, anything is possible. Who knows what machinations they are pulling behind the scenes?
Landrieu doesn’t live in Louisiana, and we really don’t want her.
I have done more for the conservative cause in Kansas than ANYONE you know.
Crawl back under your bridge, troll!
Let some Kansas Ted Cruz represent the peeps of the State.
The "facts" I have is that Wolf has been nowhere to be found, including our latest Kansan's for Life event, the most important conservative event in the state. It would seem the only benefit Wolf deems worth, is himself!
I know about the Conservative Fund, however Ted Cruz endorses Roberts, so, that combined with a bunch from Texas that I do not know, I'll stick with the facts that I know, Wolf has done nothing at all other than now to beg others for money to support himself, but PT Barnum said there's a sucker born every minute and that's what Wolf is hoping.
I am no RINO, nor do I support them.
I will not support an unknown whose only claim to fame is his relationship to Obama!
Wolf is worse than a blank piece of paper, he's running around claiming his conservative roots that are nonexistent.
At best he's a limp Libertarian, but one whose never supported anyone but himself!
Did you watch the ad that is the subject of this thread? Seems to me it speaks very effectively about his RECORD as you put it.
“Did you watch the ad that is the subject of this thread? Seems to me it speaks very effectively about his RECORD as you put it.”
Maybe this guy Kansas58 is a corporate farmer. He’d love Roberts. You know the song: “I don’t plant cotton, I don’t plant taters, cause I get paid by the legislators, for growing nuttin.” Seriously, this is our problem in this country! For anyone to think that voting for someone to be your legislator for 47 friggin years w/o even a year off is why we are in the deep doo doo we are in today! This guy clearly doesn’t understand the intent of the framers when they wrote the Constitution. Being a lifetime elected representative was the farthest thing from their minds when they crafted the document. It’s the syndrome that says that the Congress is full of turds, except for my guy, he’s a keeper. Here’s hoping Dr. Wolf wins!
Do you also stay at Holiday Inn?
Your main complaint seems to be that he is unknown to the GOPe power brokers, that is a plus in this Freepers mind, and I am pretty sure I am not alone in that thought.
KS SEN. PAT ROBERTS R 90% KS 1 REP. TIM HUELSKAMP R 89% KS 4 REP. MIKE POMPEO R 86% KS 3 REP. KEVIN YODER R 72% KS 2 REP. LYNN JENKINS R 70% KS SEN. JERRY MORAN R 66%
I drove through west Kansas and can’t blame the guy.
Carpet bagger like Hitlary in New York?
We, in the grassroots have never heard of him but then you're not from Kansas, are you, or you would know better!
Those of us in "Kansan's for Life," were the TEA Party before there was a TEA Party and with the exception of those who have supported Ron Paul (who also didn't care anything about the Life issue in Kansas), we all know one another and Wolf was and is totally unknown, never has appeared at anything until he began telling us how great he is and how he really needs our money to "fight back against Washington!"
Try coming to Kansas some time, Toto, and you'll find out just how unknown Milton Wolf really is!
Huh? If a candidate doesn’t maintain a home in his state, how on Earth can you legally meet the residency requirements to ever run for any political office?
You make it sound like the Senators sent to DC are too poor to follow the law.
WTF? Your words are idiocy in the highest!
I’m looking forward to quoting you in the future.
You are absurd.
Under Federal AND State law, you LIVE where you SAY you LIVE for voting purposes.
What I have stated on the subject is accepted law.
There is NOTHING illegal about what Senator Roberts is doing.
In fact, it is COMMON practice.
All I care about is how Roberts votes.
Roberts IS a Conservative.
Silly, wasteful, egotistical people who waste our time, money and efforts fighting against good conservatives annoy most true conservatives.
You can not argue with Roberts on his voting record, that is WHY you have nothing else but this stupidity.
The campaign put out a radio ad pushing back, saying that people outside the state are trying to influence the election...
-——————— -——————— -——————— -———————
Well, yeah. Roberts would the “people outside the state” since he doesn’t live there.
Every conservative we can get in place is a step in the right direction. And as for the big important list, I’m pretty sure we’ve gotten rid of Cornyn here this year :)
What’s up with Moran is that he’s a joke. I’d have preferred Wolf build a groundgame tokick that guys ass out.
How much did you know about Kathleen Sebelius? I knew more about A.J. Cripe than I know about Wolf, but I do not accept that a Kansas Senator who hasn't lived in the State he represents for over 30 years, is the best choice.
Right. The guy with the rock solid 95% conservative rating, who has stood with Ted Cruz on every major issue, is a "RINO". I'm sure "Barack Obama's cousin" is MUCH more "conservative", because he appeared in the public spotlight for the first time a few months ago and says he is. If he SAYS so, it MUST be true!
>> I think we are playing with fire with this whole doesnt live in Kansas thing. <<
It's hard to keep track of the rules on these issues. According to the Mark Levin fans and RedState.com people, it's a "deal breaker" if Pat Roberts isn't living in Kansas, but it was fine and dandy when Liz Cheney wanted to represent Wyoming when she hadn't lived there since she was 12. I think their talking points make more sense if they didn't change from candidate to candidate.
There’s no need for hysterics.
Anyway this “doesn’t live in Kansas stuff” is a bunch of crap cooked up by the NY times and launched on to by a desperate opponent with little real rational for convincing anyone of voting for him.
You support the random guy who’s only way of drawing attention to himself is to keep mentioning a distant relation to Obama over the proven conservative Senator?
I agree. Pat Roberts has sided with Ted Cruz on EVERY major issue (oftentimes being only one of a handful Republicans to stand firm), so Kansas voters ALREADY have such a Senator representing the peeps of the state.
His challenger, on the other hand, has NEVER been known for promoting conservative causes until he announced his Senate candidacy.
KS has plenty great conservative candidates and I will support one of them, not a phony like Wolf!
I do know what I'm talking about here and no one who's not been here in the trenches knows the truth so toss invectives away and flame away, I do have a track record that I can defend.
I'm supposing all of you who think I'm a RINO are now happy with your money and your votes going to "TEA Party saviors," say, Kelly Ayotte and Ron Johnson just for starters!
Hey, no problemo they told us they were the "real conservatives" and even some conservative groups got behind them but I'll just bet there were some folks at home who knew who these people really were, they hoped it wouldn't be but it was and now you can regret the opportunity to get behind better and genuine candidates.
