In 2006 with all the terrible shootings that have occurred, a politician who claims to be responsible and wants your vote thinks this ad is responsible.
(Harry Mitchell ad: J.D. Hayworth in the cross-hairs)
There is wrong and then there is wrong. Political ads are as negative as ever; however, this one crosses the line beyond words. Democrat Harry Mitchell’s latest ad against Arizona US Rep. J.D. Hayworth depicts Hayworth in the cross-hairs of a rifles scope. WTF is Harry Mitchell thinking? This is not a political paid for ad by some independent action group. This is a paid ad by Mitchell’s campaign. Could you imagine the hue & cry throughout the land if a Republican ever did and ad like this against a Democrat?
The DC sniper gripped the Washington, DC area for months. Charles Carl Roberts just gunned down 5 Amish school girls. Somehow “Dirty” Harry Mitchell thinks it OK to show a picture of his opponent through the scope of a rifle in a political ad. Seems to me that it would be this type of poor judgment that would discredit Mitchell from being elected.
Harry Mitchell, you need to take this ad down and publically apologize to Rep. Hayworth and his family. You should be ashamed of yourself to think that this is acceptable behavior.
