MO GOP Senate Candidate Pulls Video Showing Smoldering Remains Of 9/11
Roy Blunt’s campaign for U.S. Senate removed a video from its website showing the smoldering remains of the World Trade Center alongside audio of opponent Robin Carnahan saying she doesn’t want to tell New Yorkers what to do about the lower Manhattan Islamic Center (via Greg Sargent). Blunt says he didn’t know about it, and a campaign spokesperson blamed it on an unnamed staffer. (One can only imagine what they would be saying if Carnahan came out strongly in favor of the proposed structure).
This comes the same week that New York gubernatorial candidate Rick Lazio is using 9/11 footage to promote his troubled campaign. An Islamic center is offensive to the families of the bereaved, according to these Republicans, but no sensitivity is needed when using Ground Zero for political purposes.Click here for reuse options!
