Democratic Rep. Dan Maffei has a new Web ad out that highlights the past efforts of his GOP opponent, Ann Marie Buerkle, as an anti-abortion activist and deems her “too extreme” to represent NY-25.

The video uses old news clips to detail the extent of Buerkle’s work in the pro-life movement, adding: “She even marched in a rally where a dead fetus was carried through the streets of Syracuse.”

It goes on to dub Buerkle “the Tea Party darling of upstate New York,” noting she has questioned the veracity of the science on climate change and accepted the endorsement of former Alaska Gov./2008 VP candidate Sarah Palin.
