Surprise: It's getting ugly in a local Congressional race.

In the political ad above, Weston businessman Ozzie deFaria photoshopped a dog collar on Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. No surprise: He's not apologizing for it.

"We need to send her back to the pound," he said in a recent speech.

Never heard of deFaria? Well, he's got next to no chance against Wasserman-Schultz, who has often been the target of ugly ads and stunts (remember the "DWS" target at the shooting range?).  What he's doing here is playing up to the rabid Tea Party base. And the really sad thing is it just might work.
