Homobigot Musgrave has to pull her lying TV ad

Ahhh…desperation in the air. Ms. Marriage Protection Amendment herself, Colorado’s Marilyn Musgrave, had to pull a bottom-feeding ad after it was found to contain false allegations against challenger Angie Paccione.(9NEWS):

The attack ad, targeting her Democratic Party opponent, State Rep. Angie Paccione (D-Fort Collins) for her positions on illegal immigration, contained evidence which did not support the allegations.

Guy Short, Musgrave’s Campaign Manager, said the allegations included in the commercial called “Welcome Mat” were accurate, but the citations graphically included in the ad were not.

The Paccione camp jumped all over that stumble in a press release.

Ever since Marilyn ran her first radio ad, she has been using bald-faced lies and distortions to attack Angie. This latest TV attack-ad is just more of the same. Even the revised ad that Musgrave ran later in the day contained statements that were “not fact” and were “false,” according to 9News. Here’s the bottom line:

* Marilyn’s voting record is terrible.
* Marilyn will say anything to keep her job.
* The only way Marilyn can win is to drag Angie down to Marilyn’s level.
* As Angie has been saying, “If Marilyn keeps lying about my record, I’ll keep telling the truth about hers.”
