16. Republican Lee Terry. He's even got Atwater's first name.

 

It's an age-old tradition in America.

Scare the white folk then get the votes of those scared and frightened white folks:



This GOP Ad Is Already Being Dubbed the New ‘Willie Horton’

by Andrew Kirell | 12:54 pm, October 17th, 2014

In the midst of a tight U.S. House race in Nebraska, the Republicans released a new ad Friday targeting the Democratic challenger for his support of a law that allowed a convicted felon to serve only half of his prison sentence.

Nebraska convict Nikko Jenkins was released early in 2013 as a result of “Good Time” laws allowing for good behavior reductions in sentencing. He had been serving time for an armed robbery and assault conviction. Several months after his early release, he was caught and convicted on four counts of first-degree murder.

Because State Sen. Brad Ashford — the Democratic challenger to incumbent Republican Lee Terry — supported that “Good Time” law, the GOP released the ad prominently featuring Jenkins.

“Brad Ashford supported the ‘good time’ law and still defends it, allowing criminals like Nikko Jenkins to be released early,” the 30-second TV spot stated, while tying Ashford to a menacing-looking Jenkins by putting their images side-by-side.
