GOP Senate Campaign Manager: "We're Going To Shove ... Ads Up His Ass"

Colorado Senate candidate Bob Schaffer's campaign manager goes off-message:

On Friday, Democratic Rep. Mark Udall voted with Republicans to keep Congress in session until lawmakers consider a crucial energy bill.

But on Wednesday, when the issue first came up for a vote, Udall didn't cast one because he wasn't present. ...

Dick Wadhams, Schaffer's campaign manager, said Friday's vote was "absolutely meaningless." He said the initial vote to recess was the important one because it sent a message. It passed by only one vote.

Udall missed the vote, Wadhams said, because "he was screwing around in Colorado raising money for his campaign."

"Udall did not keep any promise," said a fired-up Wadhams.

"He's not going to get away with it. We're going to shove a bunch of 30-second ads up his a-- on this issue over the course of the campaign. This guy was fundraising in Colorado and missing votes. That is reprehensible."

Schaffer has already gotten into some trouble during the race for pushing an Iraqi oil deal against U.S. interests.
