Padgett trashed Terry Anderson in '04. Her tactics come back to bite her.
In her 2004 bid for a second term in the Ohio Senate, Padgett was challenged by Democratic Terry Anderson of Athens, Ohio, who in the 1980s had been held hostage by Islamic radicals in Lebanon. During her race against Terry Anderson, Padgett accused Anderson of being a member of the "Blame America crowd", and campaign fliers showed a photograph of Anderson in a meeting with a leader of Hezbollah. In response, Anderson said, "He and his brothers were the ones who kidnapped me, chained me, blindfolded me and beat me. My political opponent uses a picture of that interview to try to win an election." <1>

Congressional candidate Joy Padgett held an angry conference call today with reporters to denounce a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee ad that says she was investigated by Ohio's Inspector General for abusing her former position as head of Ohio's Office of Appalachia to help her own business.

The ad fails to mention the investigation exonerated her, and Padgett said her lawyers would ask television stations to stop running it.

"This is an absolutely slanderous commercial," said Padgett, who is running against Democrat Zack Space for the congressional seat vacated by disgraced GOP congressman Bob Ney. "It absolutely misleads the voters."

The DCCC doesn't plan to pull the ad off the air, despite a cease and desist letter it received yesterday from Padgett, said spokeswoman Adrienne Elrod.

"We stand by our ad 100 percent," Elrod said. "The ad speaks for itself."

1. I really hope she loses, then burns in h*ll
Has she ever apologized or explained her remarks about Anderson? She's beneath contempt, I hope failure follows her for the rest of her days.
