• NE-02: We’ve written extensively about how politicians who run ads trying to tie their opponents to heinous crimes often wind up bitten in the ass, but no one’s gotten their buttocks chomped as hard as Lee Terry just did:
Convicted killer Nikko Jenkins offered his take on the race in Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District at a hearing to determine his mental status Wednesday.Jenkins, 28, shouted “Hey you guys, vote for Lee Terry! Best Republican ever!”
The NRCC, of course, aired an infamous, Willie Horton-esque ad that accused Democrat Brad Ashford of wanting to release Jenkins from prison earlier. The ad received national criticism and Democrats demanded it be taken off the air, but both Terry and the NRCC stood behind it. Talk about getting what you deserve. Best Republican ever!
