Disgusting… Lib Markey’s First Attack Ad Links GOP SEAL Opponent to Bin Laden (Video)
Liberal Massachusetts Representative Ed Markey released his first attack ad against GOP opponent Gabriel Gomez. In the ad he links Gomez, a former Navy SEAL, to Osama Bin Laden.
Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA), who is running for the Senate seat abandoned by Secretary of State John Kerry, has released a new ad attacking his Republican opponent, businessman Gabriel Gomez, who trails by just four percentage points in the latest polls. The ad links Gomez with Osama bin Laden.
It opens with an MSNBC host talking about the group OPSEC ripping President Obama for revealing national security secrets for political purposes. OPSEC said that Obama’s willingness to reveal that information turned the killing of bin Laden into “an intelligence disaster.”
Gomez, a former Navy SEAL, was a member of OPSEC, and appeared on MSNBC to talk about the ad. Markey chose to juxtapose Gomez’s face with Bin Laden’s by playing the OPSEC ad next to a picture of Gomez from MSNBC.
That doesn’t even make sense.
UPDATE: U.S. Medal of Honor recipient Tom Hudner called the ad dishonorable and said Markey should take it down.
