CD6: DCCC Robocall Attacks Rep. Roscoe Bartlett for Ties to Rep. Todd Akin's Rape Views // Taped Call Tells Voters to Call Bartlett

According to, this is a national campaign targeting a number of vulnerable U.S. House Republicans. See the DCCC press release and robocall script below:


DCCC Launches New Advertising Linking Congressman Bartlett
To Congressman Todd Akin's Extremism

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) continued on offense today, launching new automated phone calls targeting Congressman Roscoe Bartlett (MD-06) for the extreme agenda that he shares with Congressman Todd Akin. At the Republican National Convention in Tampa this week, Congressman Bartlett’s Republican Party platform will include a ban on a woman’s right to choose with no exceptions for rape, incest or if the life of the mother is at risk.

In a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released last week, 54 percent of voters believe Republican candidates are “out of step” while only 38 percent believe they’re in the main stream.

An example of an automated phone call Congressman Roscoe Bartlett’s (MD-06) district follows:

Hello. This is Julie calling from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.  By now, I’m sure you’ve heard Congressman Todd Akin’s unbelievable comments about rape and his outrageous beliefs about women’s rights.

You know what’s even more worrisome? He’s not alone.

Republicans like your Congressman Roscoe Bartlett share some of these radical, right-wing beliefs– that the government should take away a woman’s access to making informed decisions about her own pregnancy.

It’s outrageous. This week, Congressman Bartlett’s Republican Party platform will include a plank that says no to a woman’s right to choose without any exceptions even in cases of rape, incest or when the mother’s life is at risk.

If you’re tired of this right-wing social agenda from Congressman Todd Akin and Congressman Bartlett then call him now at 301-694-3030.
