The Bradys are planning on running this TV ad:
" Announcer: "On September 13th, President Bush turned his back on the safety of all Americans."
(Video: same words as audio.)
Reporter shouts question: "Mr. President, why allow the assault weapons ban to expire without a fight?"
(Video: President Bush turns around and leaves.)
White House Press Staffer: "Bye, guys, thank you."
(Video: Press staffer steps in front of camera.)
Announcer: "He turned his back on the victims of violent crime."
(Video: Crime scene photos, President Bush turning around.)
Announcer: "On police officers gunned down on our streets."
(Video: Police funeral photos, President Bush turning around.)
Announcer: "On the fight against terrorists."
(Video: Photos of suspected terrorists)
Announcer: "When he let the assault weapons ban die,"
(Video: President Bush turning around, words on screen.)
President Bush turned his back on all of us.
(Video: Freeze frame of President Bush, words on screen - FEC legal statement.)
Announcer: "The Brady Voter Education Fund is responsible for the content of this advertisement."
How are they able to get away with this under the McCain/Feingold bill (Campaign Finance Reform Act)?
At the end of the video there's a "FEC legal statement", but it's illegible in the video on the website.
Anyone know what "loophole" enables them to do this?
It unless the viewer is a hardcore anti-gunner, it will be forgotten like yesterday's wet dream after the elections.
