So God Made a Trial Lawyer

America Rising PAC, the same group that caught Congressman Bruce Braley saying disparaging things about U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley and Iowa Farmers, is now out with a spoof on Paul Harvey’s classic, “So God Made a Farmer.”

The group will begin an online campaign featuring the 60-second ad beginning on Friday.

Congressman Braley has had a dreadful week. The news of his remarks about Grassley spread across the state quickly. In an effort to smooth over things with the ag community, the Braley campaign sent out a press release beating up Republican Mark Jacobs while stressing Braley’s ag background. There was only one problem. Instead of spelling “detasseling corn” the correct way the release spelled it “detassling corn.” Instead of “baling hay”, the Braley campaign wrote “bailing hay.”
I guess lawyers don’t know all the answers.
