Former Disney Exec Promises Voters He ‘Gets Sh*t Done’

That’s what you get for hiring a Hollywood actor to run your political campaign.

Thanks to Sean Astin, son of Patty Duke and star of such films as Lord of the Rings and The Goonies, California Congressional primary candidate Dan Adler has taken to YouTube with some go-for-the-gusto, four-letter word 30-second spots. Adler, a former Walt Disney Imagineering vp, has his kids and even Duke herself swearing that he is a man who “gets sh*t done:”

Adler is also running less salty TV ads ahead of Tuesday’s all-party primary. If there is no majority vote getter on May 17th, the top two finishers will advance to a July 12th, 36th district runoff for the seat vacated by Jane Harman.
