George LeMieux's "Two-and-a-half Macks" video seeks to make Connie Mack a mockery

In the increasingly tough Republican race for U.S. Senate, George LeMieux released a scorcher of a web video that seeks to make Connie Mack an object of mockery for all his past court troubles (Background story here). Two errors stand out:

1) It says Mack "stiffed his lawyer." She said he didn't. He paid her $30,000 tab after she filed a charging lien

2) It says Mack "failed to pay his child support." Actually, Mack was late with a temporary support payment of about $1,700.

Regardless, the web ad could be the precursor to a devastating line of attack by LeMieux, who's fending off Mack for his role as a top advisor to former Gov. Charlie Crist. It also dovetails with a Super PAC's whack at Mack (here). Right now, this is just baseline chatter, something aimed at the news media, donors and activisits. The question: What happens if LeMieux puts money behind this?
