Former judge Ann Cal­lis re­leased a TV ad cri­ti­ciz­ing Rep. Rod­ney Dav­is (R) on con­gres­sion­al perks. The ad men­tions that he re­por­ted spend­ing $40,000 in Wash­ing­ton D.C. steak­houses and that he “voted to chop Medi­care, but not perks for him­self, like first-class flights, pen­sions, or health care for life.”

“Hey, steak is great, Con­gress­man,” a butcher says in the ad. “But it’s time to trim some fat in D.C.”

The Na­tion­al Re­pub­lic­an Con­gres­sion­al Com­mit­tee called the ad “dis­hon­est and fac­tu­ally in­cor­rect” in a state­ment, say­ing Dav­is has voted to end con­gres­sion­al perks. (re­lease)
