Sarah Silverman isn’t the only funny Jewish lady making suggestive political videos for Obama.

Now comes Lena Dunham, creator of the buzzy HBO show “Girls,” with a video about her first time…voting.

“You want to do it with a great guy,” Dunham says. “You want to do it with a guy who brought the troops out of Iraq.”

Unlike the Silverman videos, which were produced by the Jewish Council for Education and Research, a super PAC, the new Dunham video is out from the Obama campaign itself.

The mildly suggestive video has drawn some criticism from Republicans online. In a widely quoted tweet, Breitbart contributor wrote : “How could a president with two, young blossoming daughters release an ad as disgusting as this[?]”
