Rep. Allen West is being portrayed in an attack ad, which shows him hitting a white woman. The American Sunrise PAC, founded by Thomas Murphy Jr., uses a caricature of him portraying him as a boxer who smacks around women and takes away money from middle class families. I am no fan of Rep. Allen West, but damn. That’s a bit much.
In case you don’t know, Thomas Murphy Jr., who is the CEO of Miami-based Coastal Construction Group, is the father of West’s general election opponent Patrick Murphy. He reportedly kicked in $250,000 to the super PAC, Shark Tank reports.
The American Sunrise PAC has launched its first attack ad against Congressman Allen West. The political action committee was founded by the father of Congressman West’s general election opponent Democrat Patrick Murphy. Personally, I don’t like the mess these super PACs are causing. Anyone with the right amount of money and connections can start a super PAC for all the wrong reasons.
