After the release on NH Journal of an explosive video showing her violently snatching a video camera from an opposing campaign’s tracker and cursing him out, Democratic Congressional candidate Ann Kuster has taken to referring to the use of campaign trackers as “political bullying.” According to today’s Concord Monitor:
“Political bullying like this is exactly what is wrong with Washington, and we need to send a clear message that this attempt to distract New Hampshire voters from Congressman Bass’ positions on the issues is desperate and unacceptable,” Kuster wrote in an email to supporters.
But an analysis by NH Journal shows Kuster herself is running a negative campaign ad against Rep. Charlie Bass (NH-02) that contains footage apparently obtained by Democrat campaign trackers.
The ad is titled, “Medicare” and was loaded onto youtube on September 25th, the same day NH Journal revealed the damaging video of her hostile behavior toward Bass’ tracker. An image from the ad is posted below.
NH Journal has contacted the Kuster campaign to seek an explanation for the campaign’s apparently hypocritical position on the use of campaign trackers. As of the filing of this story, there has been no response.
