Just Awful– Coakley Uses Image of World Trade Center in Attack Ad to Symbolize Greed

Democrat Martha Coakley used a photo of the World Trade Center in her latest attack ad against Republican Scott Brown.

Did she use the image to suggest that she would be tough on terrorists?
No, she used it to represent American greed.

American Power saved a copy of the video attack ad.
Ben Smith reported:

The image in the attack on Scott Brown for his alleged closeness to Wall Street pictures the Trade Center and the destroyed Marriott Hotel on its western side.

A National Republican Senatorial Committee spokesman, Brian Walsh, attacked its use.

“Using the image of a site where over 2,700 Americans died in a terrorist attack to distort Scott Brown’s position on regulating Wall Street is both distasteful and disrespectful. Martha Coakley should immediately renounce this ad and call for it to be removed from the airwaves,” he said.
