VoteVets PAC compares Toomey to Ahmadinejad, a PAC that lobbies to elect veterans to public office, announced Wednesday it would be canvassing for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate and former U.S. Navy Admiral Joe Sestak with these hangers comparing Republican candidate Pat Toomey to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. 

According to the VoteVets Web site: “Every time the price of oil goes up a dollar, Iran gets another $1.5 billion.  Yet, rather than work to lessen America's dependence on fossil fuels and drive down the cost of oil, Pat Toomey voted to give handouts to Big Oil and expand drilling , while opposing an energy reform bill in Congress.  The flip-side of the piece explains that Joe Sestak, as a war veteran, understands what it takes to protect America, and has supported policies that would break America's dependence on oil.”
“Comparing Pat Toomey to the president of Iran is disgusting and way beyond the pale of acceptable political debate,” said Toomey spokeswoman Nachama Soloveichik. "Congressman Sestak should denounce such efforts from his supporters."
The Sestak campaign has not commented.
