Skip to comments.Andy Beshear's campaign attempts to have GOP ad pulled; RAGA defends first ad of cycle
Posted on 07/18/2015 1:45:37 PM PDT by Republican Wildcat
The campaign of Democratic attorney general candidate Andy Beshear is attempting to have an ad by the Republican Attorneys General Association removed from Lexington airwaves.
The ad first was launched on Tuesday in the Lexington market where the 30-second spot is airing on: WLEX-TV, WKYT-TV and WTVQ-TV. As previously reported, the spot highlights Republican candidate Whitney Westerfield, a Hopkinsville attorney and the state Senate Judiciary chairman, as having spent time as a prosecutor who put criminals behind bars.
The ad targets Beshear for having a lack of law enforcement experience, having a campaign funded by special interests he would oversee as attorney general and that he would support Obamas policies.
By Wednesday the campaign for Beshear, the son of Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear, sent a notice via an attorney to stations which demand(s) removal of misleading and false advertisement.
The strongly worded letter warns stations that by airing the ad they expose the station to legal liability for which damages may be sought, we ask that you refuse to air the ad and/or immediately remove it from the air.
At the heart of the letter from DBL Law Practice is the remark on Beshear and Obama. DBL says the cited materials in the RAGA ad do not prove that Beshear would support Obamas policies, as the ad states.

On Friday, the RAGA responded with their own letter to stations defending their ad and the claims therein.
Attorneys for RAGA, with law firm Clark Hill in Washington, D.C., argue that (t)he letter from Beshears counsel is a desperate attempt to conceal Beshears lack of experience, questionable campaign contributions, and support for President Obamas policies. It is meant to intimidate stations...

So Beshear is a cry baby who doesn’t believe in the First Amendment?
The day will come, soon, when the “mainstream” media will simply refuse to run Republican campaign ads (except perhaps GOPe ads for leftist R’s in primaries vs. patriotic conservatives).
While still giving the democrats FREE advertising via their so-called news programs — and of course still running their ads, unquestioned, regardless of the ratio of lies & hate to actual truth contained therein.
Once these bastards enter the political arena it's all fair game, including Democrat lies.
If America starts down this path arrests and imprisonment of political enemies will be born.
Sorry Dem-Rats, you started this crap, embrace the Suck.
Attempts to silence dissent and criticism are now openly pursued. Free speech is in serious jeopardy.
The ad targets Beshear for having a lack of law enforcement experience, having a campaign "funded by special interests he would oversee as attorney general" and that he "would support Obama's policies." ...says the cited materials in the RAGA ad do not prove that Beshear "would support Obama's policies," as the ad states.IOW, he would support Obama's policies, but doesn't want anyone to mention it during the campaign, or be cornered into a put-up-or-shut-up situation. Here's a policy of Obama's -- support it? Here's another policy of Obama's -- support it?
