Republican Congressman Touts "Greatest Moments" Working With President Clinton
Rep. Clay Shaw (R-FL), in a tight battle with Democrat Ron Klein, is touting the record he amassed ... while Bill Clinton was president.
Shaw, who has distanced himself this year from the Bush Administration, has a new radio advertisement touting times he crossed party lines to work with Democrats during the Clinton era.
"(T)he greatest moments of the Clinton years came when Democrats and Republicans worked together. ... How about Social Security? Bill Clinton signed a law getting rid of the earnings penalty for senior citizens who work, and that law would never have passed without the leadership of our Congressman Clay Shaw," the ad script reads.
Shaw's South Florida congressional district has voted for both John Kerry and Al Gore in recent presidential elections.
