Black Republicans start a nasty ad campaign
The National Black Republican Association has started running a hard-hitting radio attack ad against Democrats in Maryland. It is meant to benefit black GOP Senate candidate Micheal Steele. It alleges that MLK Jr. was a Republican and that Democrats founded the KKK. Ouch. These allegations are being disputed by Democrats and historical experts.
The Washington Post spoke to a University of Maryland political scientist who slammed the ad's "distortions."
"It is a totally fallacious rendition of the platform of the parties because, in effect, what happened is, the two parties essentially switched ideology," Ronald Walters said.
