Know why you shouldn’t ever allow yourself to be filmed dancing topless in a Darth Vader helmet? There are actually many acceptable answers to this question, but the one we’re looking for is: Because it may eventually be used against you in a campaign ad. 

The Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF) super PAC announced on Wednesday that they would pour $1.1 million into an ad targeting Democrat Jon Ossoff.

Aimed at undercutting his readiness for Capitol Hill, the video shows Ossoff singing in glee club and dressed up in Star Wars costumes during his college days. More seriously, it also alleges that he lied about once serving as a “national security staffer.”

“It is sad that the hope of the Democratic Party rests on someone who has spent his adult life living outside of Georgia’s 6th district, inflating his experience, and playing dress-up with his buddies,” said Ruth Guerra, CLF Communications Director.  “The truth is Jon Ossoff simply isn’t being honest with Georgia voters.”

Ossoff’s old boss, Rep. Hank Johnson, said that Ossoff had indeed received “top secret security clearance from the Department of Defense” for his work on “National Security issues.”

“Washington political operatives are coming into Georgia to spread false personal attacks – it’s what the American people are sick and tired of,” Johnson told the AJC in a statement.

The ad is set to run beginning today and will air until April 18 on “TV and online platforms.” CLF also seems be suggesting that more embarrassing ads may be on the horizon.

“If you like Jon Ossoff playing Han Solo, just wait until you see what we release next,” Guerra said.

Last week, a zpolitics and Clout Research poll found that Ossoff currently leads the 18-person race with 32 percent support. Behind him is former Republican Secretary of State Handel, who holds 25 percent support, while John’s Creek Councilman Bob Gray was favored by 11 percent of respondents.
