Rove Protégé Behind Racy Tennessee Ad

Controversial RNC Ad Against Harold Ford Jr. Produced By Rove Consultant

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 26, 2006


Quote:
"In a Southern state like Tennessee, some stereotypes still exist. There's very clearly some racial subtext in an ad like that."

Hilary Shelton, director of the Washington bureau of the NAACP

(CBS/AP) A protégé of White House political guru Karl Rove produced the controversial Republican National Committee ad targeting Tennessee Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Harold Ford Jr., that some have called racist, CBS News has learned.

The ad, in which a white woman with blonde hair and bare shoulders looks into the camera and whispers, "Harold, call me," and then winks, was produced by Scott Howell, the former political director for Rove's consulting firm in Texas.

This is very interesting. Maybe Rove knows lots about the Foley instant messages. :wink:

Some have called racist? Of course it is racist!

Isn't it amazing how the people who are guilty of whatever, point their fingers at the other side and accuse them of the dirty deed? Around here the Rs are all saying the Dems are going to ruin Social Security--in the south I am sure mixing races is the big NO!

At least Rs are very aware of the prejudices of their constituencies.
