Another Terry (R-NE-02) campaign ad is under fire; candidate's camp defends it
Source: Omaha World Herald
By Joseph Morton
WASHINGTON — Another campaign ad from Rep. Lee Terry has drawn fire.
Critics call the ad a brazen mischaracterization of his actions and a group quoted in the ad says it was misrepresented.
The Terry campaign defended the commercial, which touts the Omaha Republican's work in 2007 on fuel efficiency standards for new vehicles. His legislation is known as “Hill-Terry” because he authored it with former Rep. Baron Hill, D-Ind.
The ad opens with a powerful scene — an angry mob burning the American flag.

It looks like the ad has been pulled. The link to the ad in the story appears to be dead.

2. It's about time
Evidently the people here in Nebraska are a helluva lot more informed about terry than he thought they were.
They're starting to realize that this turd bucket has done absolutely NOTHING for the state or his district,
and everything to line his pockets. He originally said he'd do two terms, He's been there for at least 6.
Anyone remember "Why'd you get me so drunk"? Google it if you don't.
Too bad it might be too late to get rid of him before he can cash in on the 20 year pension though.
He tried to smear his opponent Ewing with some bogus claim of being over budget in his office and said,
Now get this:"We did our homework on this". Come to find out that Mr Ewing was not over budget and just proved
that terry has no idea how the gov't works in Omaha and the official he claimed he got the verification from said
that no one from terry's office or campaign has EVER asked him anything or contacted him.
And one of the county board members that terry had standing next to him when he revealed the #'s on Monday
backtracked his comments about the #'s on Tuesday. So that blew up in his smarmy smug face.
Now he's trying to coattail on a bill that he had nothing to do with and surprisingly the Omaha paper fact checked it
and the link is the result. This all started when one local TV station checked on the original ad.
Thank You KETV for doing what the repub owned paper(and the only paper in town) tried to ignore but couldn't given the
pub it got from KETV.
BTW the link worked when I just tried it.
