Murkowski Says: Don’t Air Tea Party Ads

From a cheering Associated Press:

Murkowski to stations: Don’t air tea party ad

October 4, 2010

JUNEAU, Alaska — U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s campaign is warning Alaska broadcasters not to air ads by a national tea party group that the campaign says are "littered with lies and intentional mischaracterizations" about her and her write-in campaign.

Attorney Timothy McKeever, in a letter to broadcasters Monday, said they are under a "legal and moral obligation" not to air the new ads from Tea Party Express, which is supporting Joe Miller, the political upstart who defeated Murkowski in the August GOP primary.

A Tea Party Express spokesman said his initial reaction is that the group stands behind the ads.

At issue is an ad the group unveiled Monday, entitled "Arrogant Lisa Murkowski — You Lost!" It seeks to paint Murkowski as more interested in political self-preservation than in serving the interests of Alaskans.

It also claims she didn’t "earn" her Senate seat and that she "tried to manipulate the Libertarian party into giving her their slot" on the ballot — claims McKeever called "materially false."

Murkowski was appointed to the seat her father held when he became governor in 2002; she won it in her own right in 2004.

It still sounds like she didn’t earn the seat in the first place.

Murkowski has said friends — without her direction — approached the party to see what it would take for her name to appear as a Libertarian candidate and that she was not about to change her beliefs for political expediency

Don’t you hate it when your friends do that?

Murkowski has called Tea Party Express an outside "extremist" group that "hijacked" the state GOP

Yep, she sounds more like a Democrat every day.

    Her campaign should attempt to get a legal injunction to
    prevent the media from publicising things they don’t like.

    Lots of luck, girl.

    This sounds like the tactics the Democrats usually resort to.

    More like the political elite in general, who for the most part have been democrats since the industrial revolution. But this is the reason I think the tea party resonates with so many, people are tired of wishy-washy candidates only concerned with getting elected. And now a true tactic from the left: Term Limits NOW!

    It’s getting harder and harder to associate these people with the Human Race.

  4. Liberals Demise says:

    She deems that this was her election to steal and now she has a grudge against the American People in Alaska. Here is to her holding her breath until she turns jackass blue and passes out!
