Lies upon layers of lies is what Democrats are marching out in advertising during the final weeks of the presidential campaign.
A long-time Democratic donor is playing himself off as a Republican convert in a video advertisement for Hillary Clinton, but fails to disclose how his money says more than his mouth.
This cross-over voter, as he’s portrayed, is actually a lobbyist who ponied up thousands of dollars in donations to Democrats long before the current election.

From The Daily Caller:
The “Republican” featured in an ad released by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign Monday in an attempt to attract GOP voters has been donating to Democrats since 2004.
The 30-second television spot, which is set to air in key swing states, features former Reagan administration official Doug Elmets, who spoke at the Democratic National Convention, discussing how he can’t vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump despite having voted for the party in the past.
“When I see him bullying people trying to divide us, that’s not the kind of country I want my kids to grow up in, so I’m putting party aside and voting for Hillary Clinton,” he tells the camera. “I don’t agree with Hillary on everything, but know she has the judgment and the experience and she knows you need to bring people together to get things done.
What this silver-tongued lobbyist fails to tell the public is how he’s supported Democrats for years. Public records expose the extent of his support.
Despite the claim he’s new to throwing his support behind Democrats, campaign finance documents indicate otherwise.
In 2006, Elmets again decided to throw financial support behind Democrats, this time giving $500 to Dave Jones’s campaign for state assembly for California’s 9th district and another $250 toward Democrat Janet Reilly’s assembly campaign.
The pattern continued in 2010 when he decided to give a $1,000 to Montana Sen. Jon Tester’s campaign and an additional $100 to Dickenson. In 2014 he once again gave $100 toward a Democrats state assembly race, this time Darrell Fong.
He upped the ante in his bet against the GOP in this year’s election.
Unsurprisingly, Elmets dumped $1,000 into Clinton’s campaign during the 2016 election cycle.
Republican Donald Trump was correct in his characterization of his opponent that there’s a fighter within, and the Democrats have fight in them. The problem is they’ve been fighting dirty for decades and getting away with it.
Now, each time lying Democrats spew their nonsense or prop up a false person in an advertisement they likely will be exposed through public records or leaked secret documents they’ve been hiding. They just keep the political spin going to see what they can get away with next.
Clinton has been spinning a web of deceit her entire political career, and the more she gets caught in a lie the more her web crumbles.
