Steele Calls for Black Republicans to Drop Ads
Thursday September 21, 2006 11:06am
BALTIMORE (AP) - Republican Senate candidate Michael Steele is calling on a group running radio ads encouraging black Marylanders to vote Republican to take their ad of the air.
The National Black Republican Association's radio ad that aired in Baltimore identifies Martin Luther King Junior as a Republican and blames Democrats for founding the Ku Klux Klan. Democrats are complaining that ads distort history.
Steele calls the ad "insulting to Marylanders."
Steele, a black Republican running for Senate, says he has not heard heard the spot, but does not oppose Republican efforts to assert the party's real place in history.
Why does he hate the ad? It says "vote Republican" and was pissing people off with it's lies
