FL-25: The Most Slanderous Ad of the Cycle

We didn't think Mario's desperation could get any worse. We were wrong. Way wrong.
Mario just launched the biggest lie and personal slander in an ad I have ever seen, falsely trying to link Joe Garcia to an FBI investigation, the Enron collapse, and corruption. You can watch the shameful ad below and then give us the resources to fight back by contributing here:
Let's be clear:
1) Joe Garcia is not, and has never been, under investigation by the FBI. This is an extremely dishonest and outrageous implication.
2) Joe Garcia never worked for Enron, never tried to get a job with Enron, and was even rebuked by Ken Lay because of his strong views on utility regulation. In fact, Joe Garcia took on the utility companies to save Florida families $1 billion.
3) Not one of the articles they cited in the ad mentioned Joe Garcia. None.
4) This ad is completely, 100% false.
We're taking every legal recourse we can to get the TV stations to pull this ad from the air. But we need your urgent help to defeat these lies on the airwaves.
We're polling neck-and-neck with their campaign, and we can't let these blatant lies and desperate attacks beat us on TV.
I know this community has already given our campaign a lot, but we need you now more than ever. Please donate whatever you can, right now.
