First campaign ad featuring Foley hits the airwaves

October 6, 2006
By Mark Preston

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The first campaign television ad featuring disgraced former Rep. Mark Foley, R-Florida, hit the airwaves Friday in southern Indiana, as a Democratic challenger sought to link the ongoing page scandal to the Republican congressman.

Former Rep. Baron Hill, D-Indiana, criticizes Rep. Mike Sodrel, R-Indiana, for refusing to return $77,000 in campaign contributions "from the House leadership who knew about but did nothing to stop sexual predator Congressman Foley.

"Millionaire Mike, he says nothing and refuses to return the money," an announcer says in the ad that is scheduled to run at least through the weekend, a Hill campaign spokeswoman tells CNN. (View the Hill add)

Foley resigned his seat a week ago after it was learned that the Florida Republican sent inappropriate e-mail and sexually explicit instant messages to teenage congressional pages.

A Sodrel spokesman denounced the ad as being "completely untrue," and noted that the Indiana Republican has not yet decided to whether to ask television stations to refrain from airing it.

"Democrats work to help people who need help.
That other party, they work for people who don't need help.
That's all there is to it."
