Liz Cheney Attempts To Stop New Attack Ad

Liz Cheney's campaign team wants that new television attack ad claiming she supports same-sex marriage to be removed from broadcast schedules. The tv spot, funded by right wing super PAC the American Principles Fund, began airing in Wyoming earlier this week.

The U.S. Senate candidate's team has sent letters to several television stations in the region asking them to pull the ad.

Caspar Star-Tribune reports that the PAC's own team has not wasted any time with a response to Cheney's request.

Legal counsel for the American Principles Fund, the conservative super PAC funding the ad, sent a rebuttal to operators and stations that received a letter from the Cheney campaign. The super PAC’s legal counsel claimed every aspect of the ad was correct and all facts were available for the public to see.

“In making these statements, the (Cheney letter) attempts to divert the station's attention away from the actual text of the Advertisement, all of which is entirely supported by the public record,” wrote American Principles Fund attorney Douglas Chalmers Jr. “Indeed, the principle (sic) source for the advertisement is Ms. Cheney's own recorded words, as broadcast on national television.”

The ad has not been pulled and is still scheduled to run through next week. In case you missed it the first time, watch it, AFTER THE JUMP.

  2. Caught! And not just another 'deer in the headlight'; caught as in 'dropped her pants', and it's not a pretty sight.

  3. Waaaaaaaa! I'm Liz Cheny and I thought I could just buy my way into a Senate Seat. Waaaaaa! Why aren't people just giving me what I want?

    It is sort of hilarious that for the tea-baggers even APPEARING on MSNBC is enough to get you banished.

  4. She probably supports Sharia law, too, in their eyes. It's always amusing to see red-state right-wingers try to out-right-wing each other. I wonder how many years after there's national marriage equality they'll keep trying to use it.

  5. She could have said : "Instead of evolving, I am devolving on this issue."

  8. As a voter wouldn't you want to know? It's more valuable information than her favorite color.

  10. Hate to see a 'FURTHER' to the right PAC using her (true or not) 'support of equality' as a tool to smack her down with, definitely not the Right Reason for her failing to win, it's the only thing about her worth supporting!
