The New Willie Horton – Nikko Jenkins Ad by Republican

Good old Republican racist fear mongering…Again.

NRCC releases Willie Horton-style ad in Nebraska House race

National Republicans are hammering Rep. Lee Terry’s (R-Neb.) Democratic opponent, state Sen. Brad Ashford, with an ad tying him to a convicted murderer.

Within hours of its launch, national Democrats were demanding Republicans take it down and apologize for the “repellent, race-baiting” ad.

The National Republican Congressional Committee’s ad tells the story of Nikko Jenkins, who committed four murders in 11 days after getting out of prison early under the state’s “good time” law.

“Brad Ashford supported the good time law, and still defends it, allowing criminals like Nikko Jenkins to be released early,” a narrator says in the ad.

The ad has evoked comparisons to the controversial “Willie Horton ad” that ran during the 1988 presidential election. That ad hit former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, the Democratic nominee, for furloughing Horton, who was already serving a life sentence for murder.

Horton was let out for the weekend under a state furlough program, but ran away from authorities and later kidnapped and stabbed a couple.

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spokeswoman Ashley Lewis decried the ad, saying it “has no place in America” and demanding the NRCC take it down.

“Republicans should be ashamed that they have resorted to divisive rhetoric, playing up racial stereotypes and fear-mongering to save their sinking candidate,” she said in a statement.

The Nebraska law automatically reduces prisoners’ sentences based on how much time they have served. Critics say it effectively cuts inmates’ sentences in half.

Terry, who has emerged as one of this cycle’s most surprisingly vulnerable House incumbents, hit Ashford on the issue last week, saying he should have added restrictions to the good-time law when he served as chairman of the state legislature’s Judiciary Committee.

“I think that one of the egregious votes and efforts of my opponent is letting violent criminals out of jail through good time, which in Nebraska is just a straight half time,” he told The Hill. “My opponent prefers criminals over law abiding citizens, putting people in jeopardy.”

Ashford called the accusations “baseless and desperate attacks” from a “flailing campaign” in a statement to The Hill last week.

During a debate last week, Ashford blamed corrections officers, whom he said could have reversed Jenkins’s sentence reductions after he got into trouble behind bars.

The content of the ad underscores just how vulnerable Terry is heading into the final weeks of the election. There’s been scant polling of the race, but a survey Ashford released in August showed the two essentially tied.

The NRCC’s choice to go nuclear, by tying Ashford to a convicted murderer, is likely fueled by an urgent need to shift momentum in Terry’s favor.

NRCC spokesman Tyler Q. Houlton last week said Republicans are not worried about Terry’s campaign and insisted the strategy is to merely shine a light on Ashford’s record.

“This is why we are helping Lee Terry and helping the voters get to know who Brad Ashford is because as soon as they see all this stuff and realize what this guy stands for, there’s no way they’re going to vote for him,“ Houlton said.

That Right Wing Racism Thing… Again

This is a political ad produced by an outfit called “Turn Right USA” for a Los Angeles Congressional Race –

Is This Most Racist, Sexist Political Ad Ever?

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is blasting what could be the most stunningly racist, sexist campaign ad in history. The web ad, produced by the ultra conservative Turn Right USA PAC, features machine-gun toting black ganstas ordering “bitch” and “ho” Democratic candidate for Congress Janice Hahn to give them money to fund their crime sprees. The Los Angeles candidate is represented by a stripper at a stripper pole who gets money stuck into her waistband as she grinds, and who gives oral sex to one of the gangstas. The ad is aimed at a program supported by Hahn as a City Council member to pay reformed former gang members in her Los Angeles district to act as “gang intervention specialists.”

“Give me your cash, bitch, so we can shoot up the streets,” chant the black actors as they wave guns. The ad is so over-the-top it appears more like an Onion spoof than anything resembling a legitimate political presentation. The GOP candidate in the special election, Craig Huey, has also condemned the spot. “The Internet video is inappropriate, highly offensive, and has no connection whatsoever to the Huey campaign,” said a spokesman, calling Turn Right “very fringe.” A Turn Right spokesman refused to discuss the ad with the Huffington Post, saying: “You’re a bunch of liberal idiots.”

Set out a cooler full of water bottles and Gatorade for the Lawn Jockey black conservative types who will be spinning and buckdancing over this one overtime!
