Nancy Johnson uses 9-11 for political purposes

(crosspost from Hat City Blog)

Oh man, this is sick. REAL sick.

Nancy Johnson shows that she'll do anything to get re-elected, even going as low as using the tragedy of 9-11 for her own political gain!

From the amazing blog "No more Nancy"

Well I didn't think it was possible, but Nancy Johnson has reached a new low. In her new TV ad, Johnson attempts to use the tragic events of September 11th for her own political advantage. The commercial features a woman who lost her son on 9/11 explaining how Nancy Johnson was there for her and "really cares." The most despicable part of the ad, however, comes when Johnson recreates the memorial service in order to show herself comforting the grieving woman.

No shame.

Make no mistake; my heart goes out to anyone who lost loved ones on 9/11. But Nancy Johnson taking advantage of someone else's loss for political purposes is the worst form of exploitation and pandering. How does Nancy Johnson's conscience allow her to ask a grieving mother to recreate her son's memorial service so that it may be used for a television commercial?
Watch the disgusting ad.


Enough is enough.

Please check out Chris Murphy's new site and contribute to his campaign.

Lets give Joe Lieberman's buddy Nancy Johnson her pink slip in November.
