Watch What You Say, or the Voters Will Watch it in Commercials

Rep Jean Schmidt (R-OH) is upset because something she said on the House floor is being used in a campaign ad against her. There's a House Rule against that sort of thing.

Opponent Victoria Wulsin (D) ain't a member of the House, so the rule doesn't apply to her. Well, not yet.

Dr Wulsin is using the infamous rant where Rep Schmidt refered to retired Marine and combat veteran Rep John Murtha (D-PA) as a "coward."

Rep Schmidt was booed on the House Floor for her comments.

By the way, someone needs to tell Rep Schmidt it's also against House Rules to refer to another lawmaker by name or disparage him on the House Floor. Oops! (Cincy Enquirer)
