Akin Hires Swift Boat Political Consultant

The Todd Akin Missouri US Senate campaign says it has hired the man behind the 2004 ‘Swiftnoat’ ad campaign.
Chris LaCavita’s third-party campaign commercils helped damage the Vietnam Nam War record of then Democratic Presidential Nominee Sen John Kerry.
The Akin campaign says among LaCivita’s early successes included his work as campaign manager of George Allen’s successful bid for Senate in the 2000 election cycle.

Mo-2 Congressional candidate Ed Martin says LaCivita also handled his 2010 race against Rep. Russ Carnhan. that was for the Mo-3. That was  before redistricting. 

Akin is facing former State Treasurer Sarah Steelman, and possibly other candidates in an effort to beat first term Democratic incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill.
