The Michigan Truth Squad has been keeping tabs on political commercials running throughout the state, and in it's latest review (read here) they call a pretty big foul on the Michigan Republican Party for their commercial entitled "Jocelyn Benson Caught Red Handed".
The commercial, which I already dissected myself here, makes all sorts of outlandish claims about Benson in an attempt to label her as some sort of political operative for a secret liberal conspiracy.
The Truth Squad calls out the ad for making numerous leaps in logic to imply Benson was involved in these "liberal" conspiracies when, in reality, she wasn't.
The ad ... attempts to use thin trails of circumstantial evidence to draw the voters to a conclusion. This requires a major unsupportable leap on the part of the viewer who actually has the facts.
As Benson has stated numerous times, partisan politics have no place anywhere near the Secretary of State's office, so it's especially disappointing to see this level of a smear campaign being run against her by the Michigan GOP.
It's time for this level of partisanship to end and for Michigan to elect someone who's actually qualified for the job to the Secretary of State's office. Tell everyone you know to vote for Jocelyn Benson.
