Obama Campaign Targets Young Voters with Suggestive Lena Dunham Spot

Another celebrity is appearing in a get-out-the-vote video, this time “Girls” creator Lena Dunham who talks about voting for the first time — in 2008, for Barack Obama — like she would talk about losing her virginity.

As much as the spot, released by the Obama campaign, fits Dunham’s persona, it’s already creating a stir on the right. The Right Scoop called it ‘DISGUSTING” and one of its bloggers wrote, “Talk about desperation.”

The 1 minute video is below.
