(VIDEO) Janice Hahn Tries To Rile Up Supporters By Comparing Craig Huey To Sarah Palin
|Not on the ballot, but worth attacking anyway...|
To win, Hahn needs to get Democrats riled up. But how? What could motivate an apathetic Democrat to get off the couch and cast a ballot?
Green jobs? Pictures of wind farms? Quinoa subsidies?
No, no and no.
In a new TV spot out today, Hahn attacks Huey by comparing him to Alaska-governor-turned-liberal-bogeywoman Sarah Palin:
Sarah Palin and Craig Huey
Which would ban a woman's right to choose in every case? Both Palin and Huey.
Ahhhh! Scared yet?
This is an unusually negative way to start a campaign, especially for a front-runner. But with low turnout expected for the July 12 runoff, and Huey's large checkbook, Hahn is leaving nothing to chance.
Dave Gilliard, Huey's campaign consultant, fired back:
"It is a shame that Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn would choose to launch her run-off campaign with a nasty, negative attack ad that twists and distorts the truth. It says a lot, especially about Hahn's disregard for the intelligence of the voters in the 36th district and her understanding of her own vulnerabilities."Well, it ain't beanbag...
