Spotlighting Frankel’s mayoral bathroom, Hasner ad features woman on toilet

by Andrew Abramson | October 19th, 2012

Adam Hasner is going after Lois Frankel in a very personal way — right in the bathroom.

Earlier in the District 22 congressional campaign, when the Young Guns Super PAC was running anti-Frankel ads, Hasner was able to stay away from negative ads against Frankel.

But with the Young Guns now shifting its resource to the West-Murphy race, Hasner is spotlighting the posh bathroom in Frankel’s West Palm mayoral office, pay raises and an expensive helicopter ride.

  1. GO LOIS! Says:

    R U 4 Real?

    Hasner. You are a JOKE.

    Lois stands with Seniors on Medicare.

    Hasner wants to END Medicare.

    And he’s trying to muck up the waters with this bogus attack about a bathroom?

    NOBODY cares.

    EVERYBODY cares about Medicare.

    Looking forward to having Lois Frankel represent me in Congress. Compared to Allen West, she is going to be a VERY welcome bit of sanity to those of us in FL-22.

  2. Younger Says:

    @GO LOIS, you were doing fine until you got to the part about Lois bringing sanity to Congress. Sorry, it’s just not true. Those of us who have dealt with Lois over the years know just how unstable she really is.

  3. Mr. Whipple Says:

    Bathroom analogies with Lois are spot on. Lois is soft and squishy, like Charmin.

  4. Truth Teller Says:

    Sometimes, even when it is uncomfortable, the truth needs to be told. Lois is about Lois, Always. After running a negative attack campaign against Hasner, the real truth about Lois is coming out for all to see or smell for that matter. Lois, close the door on your campaign and use some spray, the stench is killing me.

  5. Downtown Danny Says:

    Lois Frankel is mentally not fit for any public office.
    She is a lunatic, completely unstable, abuses everyone once she gains power, and is a pathological liar.

  6. GO LOIS! Says:

    @Younger,

    Compared to Allen West, she will be a breath of fresh air of sanity.

    Compared to Hasner’s insane support for ending Medicare as we know it, Lois Frankel’s support of Medicare is completely sane.

    Lois is quirky. She is not a polished politician. But we don’t need a slick-talking liar like Adam Hasner to soft-peddle the horrific future — devoid of a Middle Class and a social safety net — the GOP are promising to foist on us.

    This election is NOT about personalities.

    It is about ISSUES.

    It is about the FUTURE.

    And if we vote for Hasner, we are voting to have a future WITHOUT MEDICARE. Without a middle class. Without opportunity. Without solid education. Without access to affordable health care. Without our women being treated fairly in their place of work. Without our women having coverage of contraception they need to let them lead full, reqarding lives as productive members of society.

    It is as simple as that.

    The future Hasner is promising IS INSANE, and we would be too to expend just a single vote for such a bleak, nightmarish society as one that doesn’t care in the slightest about anyone but people with millions of dollars.

  7. Younger Says:

    @GO LOIS, in my humble opinion, the true Lois is just as mean-spirited and vile as West. Believe me, I’m no Hasner supporter. But it’s an indisputable fact that Medicare cannot survive much longer in its current form and Lois offers no plan on how to fix it. To accomplish all of Lois’ social and educational programs by “taxing the rich” is unworkable. Even the Post admits that. Lois talks big but has no real substance.

  8. Can't stand frankel Says:

    I’m a registered democrat, but Lois Frankel is the most crooked politician I’ve ever had the misfortune of seeing up close. Her adds insist, “she’s always on our side” — as long as theres a kickback or incentive in it for her. Like I said first, I’m a registered democrat, but if the republicans were running a goat with an Abraham Lincoln hat and beard, I’ll be voting for the Lincoln goat without hesitation

  9. ED THEPALMBEACHER Says:

    FACT IS THIS PEOPLE! We ALL know that EVERY POLITIAN IS A LIAR!! They promise Us everything under the sun, going to do this and going to do that, AND WHEN THEY GET IN OFFICE, they seem to forget everything they said!.THE POLITICAL MACHINE SUCKS THEM IN LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. They get a taste of LIMO RIDES, EXPENSE ACCOUNTS, AUTHORIZING THEMEELVES PAY RAISES etc etc..YOU WONDER WHY SOME senators and congressmen are in office for 40+ years?? THEY HAVE THE SCHEME DOWN TO A SCIENCE, AND IF HASNER, FRANKEL THINKS THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE THEY ARE FOOLING THEMSELVES! AND WHO SUFFERS?? Yes, us taxpayers, THE IDIOTS WHO BELIEVED THEIR LIES!!!

  10. LOL Says:

    I wish we could flush Lois Frankelstein down the toilet. Though she’d probably clog it with her big ass head.

    I’m with “Can’t stand frankel”, I am by no means a Republican but there’s no way I’m voting for a self-promoting, self-serving SELFISH piece of CRAP like LOWis!!!

  11. In The Know Says:

    Downtown Danny – you need to go back on your meds…you are mentally unstable and we who know you – KNOW IT. GO TO CONGRESS LOIS FRANKEL! There is no one better to represent the 22nd Congressional seat! Adam Hasner SHAME ON YOU. You need to put your face in the toilet and flush it down there a few times. You are DISGUSTING and so is this ad!!!

  12. GO LOIS! Says:

    @Younger,

    Really?

    Has she compared her own constituents to Nazis?

    Has she been demeaning towards women?

    Has she said that gays can actually change themselves to no longer be gay?

    Has she said that anyone who disagrees with her can “Get the hell out of the United States?”

    Has she dissed half of America by saying — falsely — that half of Americans pay no taxes at all?

    Has she said anything even remotely as insensitive and hurtful as these comments?

    Of course not. Don’t be ridiculous.

    As to your comment that she has no plan on Medicare, she DOES in fact have a specific plan to dramatically slash fraud in Medicare. It is on her website. Here it is:

    http://www.loisfrankelforcongress.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/The-Frankel-Plan-1.pdf

    You don’t sound like a far right extremist, and that is to your credit. However, you should really read up on the facts before you start casting aspersions.

    Go to Adam Hasner’s “Issues” page and he doesn’t even have Medicare as one of his top issues!

    Again, his candidacy is a joke.

    He is nothing but a shill for the same corporate interests who are trying to Voucherize Medicare and hold Middle Class tax cuts hostage for tax cuts for the richest people in America.

    So, again, I appreciate your tone, it is nice to hear someone on the right drop the froth at the mouth insanity… But I wish you would actually look at what the two parties are proposing on Medicare. One party wants to privatize, voucherize and end the guarantee. The other wants to cut down fraud, cut down overpayments to insurance industry and protect the guarantee for everyone in America regardless of how old they are right now and for all of those in the next generation to follow.

    If Hasner were to come out tomorrow and pledge not to voucherize Medicare — and disown the insane right wing pledge to Wall Street lobbyist Grover Norquist, then and only then would I consider him to not be a threat to our future. But as it stands right now, the policies he supports are simply dangerous to Americans and our well-being. I am not retired, I am a middle class worker with a college degree, and I am paying in to Medicare and Social Security with every single paycheck. Those programs had BETTER be there for me when I’m done with my working career.

  13. OMG! Says:

    People people what are you turning in to and who are you turning to? An A-H like Adam Hasner who would rather spend your contribution money talking about a toilet than to tell us his polished politican bullet points about how he is going to represent us in Washington? Oh my…how LOW CAN YOU GO? I SAY LOIS FRANKEL FOR CONGRESS!

  14. Had Enough Says:

    It is Obamacare, a democrat, that is destroying medicare. How can you add 13 million illegal aliens to the system and not take benefits from one to give another? Wait until the doctor shortage!I have seen first hand the damage frankel can do in a city, now you want her in the state business. I’m not that crazy about Hasner but in my mind he is the least of two evils.Go Lois, are you her mommy?

  15. GO LOIS! Says:

    “Had Enough”,

    I’m simply a constituent in FL-22 who wants what is right for myself , my family and our future.

    As I said, I pay into Medicare and Social Security, and they had both better be there for me when I need it. Republicans want to END these programs and always have, for decades they have tried to destroy the safety net while doing anything they can to benefit the wealthy. We fought these battles already. That is why we have a safety net in the first place. Before these programs existed, poverty among America’s Senior Citizens was a given. We simply CANNOT go back to those days. It is as much an economic issue as one of caring for our most fragile members of society. Middle Class families used to have to house, feed and clothe their seniors. It was a drain on families. It was solved by Medicare/Medicaid/Social Security and we are NOT going back.

    As for your claims that Obamacare is “destroying” Medicare and that it added “13 million illegal aliens” to the system…

    If I were you I would go find the person who told you those lies and give them a piece of your mind for spreading blatantly dishonest lies.

    First of all, any illegal immigrant who needs care is ALREADY in the system because they use our emergency rooms for care. Guess who pays for that? YOU. Obamacare gives all American citizens the opportunity to get access to affordable health care. By doing so, the amount of money that WE ALL pay for people who abuse the system will be dramatically reduced. That is what Romneycare does in Massachusetts and people there are very happy to have access to affordable care.

    So, again, you really should look into the facts. You are being taken for a ride by politicians who have made a PLEDGE to a WALL STREET LOBBYIST named Grover Norquist!

    Our elected officials and public servants need to be looking out for US, the Middle Class, and NOT the rich Wall Street fat cats… America needs solutions for the Middle Class, not more corporate welfare at our expense.

  16. jebamoni4 Says:

    Hazaardous Hasner has gone down in the toilet!!! Take Downtown Danny with you!!

  17. Pay to Play Says:

    Two Grand Jury investigations that said, “West Palm Beach has a Pay to Play atmosphere. Lois celebrated she was not indicted, even though developer after developer said they were afraid their projects would not be approved if they didn’t give to her campaign.
    She started building a new City Hall while the issue was is legal to build it was in the courts and she lost. However, the project was too far along to be stopped, so she cut a deal with the plaintiff.The residence of WPB are paying for a building that should have never been built. The one that has her $13,000 bathroom.
    She stopped two projects in the Northend of West Palm Beach because she thought she could build more highend condos on the properties. Both sites are vacant today. One site was going to be for a Publix.
    The list goes on.

  18. TS Says:

    $1,000 says GO LOIS is on her campaign team. Whenever a negative article appears on here GO LOIS is immediately all over it spewing ridiculous and false claims. I wonder it that’s even legal

  19. Registered Independent Says:

    I can’t stand Lois Frankel, but I’ll be damned to help give one more seat in Congress to the ReTHUGlicans. The Republican Party is OUT OF CONTROL and they must be stopped. The Republicans refuse to work across the aisle. And they are to blame for much of the stalled progress that could have taken place. As much as I hate the thought, I’m going to vote for Frankelstein… sad but hopefully there is so much of a power struggle within the Republican Party, I’m hoping they will implode. Too much Religious Zealots and failed Give to the RICH Ideology there for the regular folks. I just hope people are not stupid enough to listen to any of the Super PAC ads which much of has no basis of truth. There ought to be a law against the Super PAC ads. They are also out of control.

  20. Maximus Says:

    Watch the movie 2016!

  21. Obamahater Says:

    @golois You my insane friend are an idiot! I wouldn’t vote for a bull dyke like LOIS if she was the only one running!! You are always posting on her behalf!! Are you the women or the man? LOL Or one of her high paid hacks?

  22. Evernia Dweller Says:

    It’s a freakin’ political ad folks. It’s SUPPOSED to be provocative. And based upon the amount of press it’s getting, it looks like a pretty smart move.

    @GoLois is just freaking out because his/her girl is blowing this election. Sure sounds like a staffer too – who else would be so on point and be lurking here constantly unless you were paid! Bottom line is they took Hasner lightly, didn’t understand his media strategy and now they are scrambling.

    Lois couldn’t run WPB, and she can’t seem to run a real campaign either. Funny, no actually sad, to watch.

  23. fplbob Says:

    This ad is actually being TOO KIND in regards to Lois Frankel. She is a pathetic, worthless pile! For those of you who keep bringing up your stupid medicare…then of course Lois is always on your side. But since you made it to your medicare year, unfortunately for the rest of us, LOIS IS NEVER ON OUR SIDE….NEVER!!!! We need jobs or we are NOT going to make it to medicare! But since you are being selfish about what you want, then so will I! It’s too bad Allen West didn’t go up against Lois. She would have lost by DOUBLE DIGITS! She doesn’t even deserve to be on the same ticket as Allen West. He will easily beat Murphy, that’s already for sure. Double digit lead according to a NON-PARTISAN POLL. Not some dumb, stupid democrat poll. So I applaud Adam Hasner for going up against this piece of work. Since you medicare patients don’t know what it’s like to work next to this worthless pile, then of course you’re going to spew out MEANINGLESS crap about your own self-centered needs. Forget about every who is out of work in Palm Beach county! Just think only about your self.

  24. BLAH DE BLAH Says:

    I have to say…nice cleavage shot of the girl on the loo.

  25. HAHAHA Says:

    STOP WITH THE STUPID “2016″ MOVIE. IT’S A TOTAL PIECE OF PROPAGANDA $HIT. STAY CLASSY HASNER. WHEN YOU LOSE, TAKE WEST DOWN THE TOILET WITH YOU.

  26. GO LOIS, really just go Says:

    Who said Lois is not a polished politician…can you tell me what job she has held other than that of a politician in the past 20 to 30 years?
    GO Lois has to be Giorgio or someone similar from her camp. And why all the comparisons to WEST? She’s not running against West she’s running against Hasner. And I haven’t heard anyone accuse Hasner of bullying residents, pulling police from neighborhoods to Clematis Street and City Place to promote city funcions while the neighborhoods have driveby shootings, or making sweetheart deals with Catalfuomo, or the Related Group. I’m voting anyone but Lois

  27. petert Says:

    THE FIGURES ARE OUT MORE PEOPLE ON MEDICAID AND MEDICARE THE SO-CALLED POOR RETIREES AND DISABLED THEN WORKING TAX PAYING AMERICANS,SO LOIS SCHMOLIS,IF WE DON’T EITHER RAISE ELIGIBILITY AGE A COUPLE OF YEARS IT’S ALL OVER FOR EVERYBODY AND THIS ADMINISTRATION SPENDING $11FOR EVERY $7IN REVENUE.WE NEED MORE JOBS TO CREATE MORE TAX PAYERS WE CAN’T SURVIVE 4 MORE YEARS OF THIS, VOTE WITH YOUR BRAIN NOT YOUR HEART

  28. GO LOIS! Says:

    Yeah, how DARE I actually try to make some sense out of the perpetual right wing lies.

    How DARE I have an opinion!

    How DARE I speak my mind about issues that concern me and my family’s future!

    Fact remains, I pay into Medicare with each paycheck. That program had BETTER be there when I retire!

    I’m sorry you disagree and are ready willing and able to throw the next generation of Seniors onto the streets all because of some right wing lie that has been proven false again and again and again!

    I’m sure you Republicans want to vote for Romney too. This is the same guy (Romney) who said that he wants to roll back regulations opn the Big Banks so they can screw us all over again on housing/mortgages.

    Anyone who lives in this state — with our massive Bank-created housing problems, foreclosures underwater homes, etc — and who votes for deregulating Wall Street is such an idiot for voting against your own financial security.

    Seriously, you trust the Big Banks to self-regulate? That worked out SO well!

    And you’re going to trust the same people who want to deregulate the Big Banks to “protect Medicare”?

    LOL. Again, it’s just STUPID!

  29. butch Says:

    Go Lois…right to jail ..don’t collect 200 bucks..you already got thousands under the table..

  30. petert Says:

    HAHAHA-YOU MAY BE BLINDED BY THE IN THE TANK MEDIA BUT THE FACTS ARE FACTS AND OBAMA AND HIS SUPPORTERS HAVE BURIED AND SEALED ALL HIS HISTORY AND RECORDS HIS OBJECTIVE IS TO BRING DOWN AMERICA AND SO FAR THE ONLY THING HE IS SUCCEEDING IN HIS 4 YEARS

  31. Forgone Conclusion Says:

    Hey petert, keep drinking the kool aid. Never bother with facts or specifics, just keep making outrageous claims that apparently, you pull out of your a**! They could not have come from anywhere else. Keep listening to Rushbo, Billo and Beck who have contributed to the dumbing down of America like no one or anything else. Yipes, so many idiots with NO brains!

  32. butch Says:

    Rush has nothing to do with Lois belonging in jail for taking money under the table.

  33. One of the 47% Says:

    I just dropped a deuce in the marble toilet and getting a kick out of these comments.

  34. Annette Says:

    Lois is just trouble. Hopefully she just loses and goes away.

  35. Ray Aronson Says:

    Hasner will enrich private insurance carriers while killing, Medicare and the middle class. Frankel is not perfect but he’s the least worst.

  36. Go Hasner Says:

    Lois is an old school entitlement Palm Beach County crook like all her entitled compadres in jail. All she wants is to spend OUR money on all her no good projects. Medicare is her scare tactic. Only lemmings would vote for her!

  37. novote Says:

    that is without a doubt the best campaign commercial i have ever seen…

  38. Once and For All Says:

    Gross

  39. Edmund Burke Says:

    So Lois over spends on the great lawn with no use, over spends on city hall, destroys the historic library, gives free money to digital domain, gives $5 million away for open sky radio that will not be used in the city, treats people like dirt, lies, feels entitled, is investigated by the state attorney office and cause the IG to open an nvestigation, crushes the little city employees, ruins the fire department, police department from the best to the lowest morale across the city with its employees, And now she wants more, say no to career politicians.

  40. bhd2801 Says:

    Lois Frankel received 20K immediately after she gave Digital Domain the land in WPB. Now, after she got caught with her hand in the cookie jar, she wants to give it to charity? Sounds noble on the surface, but it’s NOT. The simple fact that she wants to give it away, right there, should tell everyone that it was wrong to take it in the first place. You don’t steal a turkey from Publix, get caught, and then say your going to give it to the local soup kitchen. Give the money back to the City or give it to the Contractors who haven’t been paid for building the D.D. offices. She is a crook. More of what we don’t need from a polititian.

  41. Bryan Says:

    Lois is a loonie. Still trying to figure out how she escaped all that corruption in West Palm with all of her free perks including a free membership at a Country Club?

  42. Evernia Dweller Says:

    What’s gross is Lois’ record. That’s what stinks.

    Betcha GOLOIS! Disappears on Nov 7th. That’s what campaign trolls do.

  43. Past History = Future Action Says:

    Post Times continue their record number of polotical endorsements for democrats.

    All democrats are endorsed by the Post Times except for 1 republican, Rooney.

    This is history repeating itself election after election in Palm Beach County.

    That’s why when you read articles in the Post Times; you have to know the paper has a huge biased and slant in their ‘reporting’ for democrats!

    DOES ANYONE HAVE A PERCENTAGE COUNT FOR PAST ENDORSEMENTS COMPARING THE NUMBER OF DEMOCRATS ENDORSED OVER REPUBLICANS FOR THE POST TIMES?

    There should be a caveat under every Post Times endorsement informing the reader of the number of endorsements for democrats decade after decade.

    That would be TRUTH IN REPORTING, ETHICS.

    Palm Beach Post Times = BS = Biased and Slanted

    Keep an eye out for more democrat endorsements.

    Now, whom do you think the Post will endorse for President? Hmmm, the wait is unbearable. Who will it be?

  44. Common Sense Says:

    Everybody, democrat and republican and other political parties or non-parties, can all agree that Medicare is in trouble.

    So, why steal $716 billion from a failing Medicare program and gave that money to Obamacare?

    Bank, save that $716 billion for future use for seniors, and do not give it to another program!

    It doesn’t make sense to take billion$ from a program that is struggling to survive and give it to another program.

    That just does make sense. It’s frightening to think that so many people, especially seniors on Medicare, think it is alright to take billions in funds from Medicare.

    Please think about that!

    You do not steal money from anything that is having a hard time surviving.

    There is no moral reason for that.

  45. Dave K Says:

    Would Frankel please just go away, I’m so tired of seeing this dog!

  46. Favors Democrats Says:

    Vana, Levy, Berger – all democrats and endorsed by the Post!

    What’s new?

    Berman, Nelson, Pafford – all democrats and endorsed by the Post!

    How can anyone gain experience when the same old people are endorsed for political positions?

    Prediction: PB Post will endorse Barack Obama

    What do you think the odds are on that?

  47. The Before You Go Toilet Conditioner Says:

    Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed surfing around your weblog posts. In any case I will be subscribing for your rss feed and I hope you write once more very soon!
