Yesterday The Campaign for America’s Future and the Public Campaign Action Fund released a new TV ad campaign to tackle the rampant culture of corruption in Congress. The television, radio and billboard ads are targeting Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas, and Rep. Bob Ney, R-Ohio, for their “central roles in one of the worst congressional corruption scandals ever.”
The Campaign for America’s Future reports thats the television and radio ads will began airing today in “Reps. DeLay and Ney’s districts and the billboard looms above Rep. Ney’s hometown exit on Rte. I-70 in Heath, Ohio.”
The Tom DeLay ad asks Rep. DeLay to “resign from Congress.” It has been scheduled to run throughout the Houston media market on broadcast and cable stations KHOU-CBS, KRIV-FOX, KPRC-NBC, KTRK-ABC, CNN, FOX, CNBC and CNN Headline News.
Toby Chaudhuri of The Campaign for America’s Future sent out an alert earlier today that Tom DeLay got a little huffy under the collar over the news about the ads and has threatened to “sue any station” that runs the ads.
