ANCHORAGE- U.S. Sen. Mark Begich's campaign is pushing back against an ad featuring a woman who speaks of Begich like he's her senator when she's actually an actress. Campaign manager Susanne Fleek-Green called the ad a "phony attempt to snooker Alaskans."

Americans for Prosperity has launched ads targeting Begich and other Democrats over the federal health care law. The group began with money from billionaire businessmen David and Charles Koch.

The woman in the Alaska ad says she trusted President Obama and Begich on the health care law but now "millions are losing their health care." Viewers are told to call Begich and "stop Obamacare."

Begich faces re-election next year. Republicans have seen winning his seat as critical to their efforts to reclaim the Senate.

O!M!G! politicians used an actress to pretend to be a constituant so they could slam another politician?!? Shut up! No way! Really? I'm shocked I tell you, shocked.

Begich has been a criminal since his first day as a politician. The truth has never crossed his lips. He should be punished for his solicited support of obamacare. I would support it too for millions in campaign dollars and a nice committee seat. His support of diluting American sovereignty with amnesty to illegal aliens is further proof that Begich is looking out for himself, not the US or Alaskans. Allowing people that have entered the country illegally, then granting them access to a multitude of welfare programs which cost tax payers trillions a year is using your tax dollars to illegally buy votes. We need to return Begich to the rock he slithered out from under this election.

Begich is really upset the rubber stamp local media cannot protect him from this outside group. Scary for him with a election year coming up in a red state. Maybe George Soros can counter this ad?
