Dem's Lawyers Seek to Silence Cancer-Stricken Woman's Anti-Obamacare Ad

If all else fails, silence the cancer-stricken woman. That seems to be the approach that Democratic Rep. Congressman (R-Mich.) - and Senate candidate - Gary Peters is taking against Julie Boonstra.

Why? Well, Julie publicly ripped Rep. Peters a new one over his vote for Obamacare, which gutted her of health insurance plan - a huge problem for a person afflicted with leukemia with only a 20% chance of survival.

As a result, Peters has lawyered up to silence the television ad of Julie telling her story.

AFP-Michigan State Director Scott Hagerstrom issued the following statement:

"The fact that Representative Peters would sic his legal team on a Michigan mother battling cancer to muzzle her tells you everything you need to know about his record of putting politics over people.

"Julie Boonstra was brave enough to tell her story about how Obamacare is making her life worse and instead of offering compassion and solutions, Rep. Peters responded with intimidation.

"Rep. Peters is an unwavering supporter of Obamacare and now he won't take responsibility for the devastating impact it's having on millions of Americans just like Julie.

"This attack on her credibility is disgusting, unwarranted, and inexcusable.  Congressman Peters and his indecent campaign team should be ashamed of themselves."
