Last Minute Attack Ads Underway
An outside group is airing a harsh ad in the Richmond television market that seeks to connect Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama to William Ayers, who has confessed to domestic bombings as a member of the Vietnam War-era Weather Underground.
Obama has admitted to cursory interactions with Ayers, who lives in the Illinois senators Chicago neighborhood and teaches at a local university. But a man in the one-minute ad suggests people should be afraid of Obama because of Ayers.
"Senator Obama, we live in a world where terrorists wish to destroy us. How can we, with a clear conscious, elect a president with such, close documented ties to a terrorist?" the man states. "Senator Obama, How can we trust you? What happens when we elect the colleague of a terrorist to the White House? Please America, lets never find out."
The ad notes that Obama and Ayers once served together on a nonprofit board that distributed educational grants in Chicago. The independent group PolitiFact.com has called the GOP attacks on Obama for serving on the same board as Ayers "malicious."
