Political Ad Exploits Beltway Gunman

A New Jersey congressional candidate is airing a campaign commercial that uses the image of Beltway Sniper suspect John Allen Muhammad. A gun control commercial produced for Democrat Anne Sumers notes that while her Republican opponent Scott Garrett "shouldn't be blamed for the sniper," Garrett's "positions are the problem." As the 30-second commercial delivers this swipe, an image of a mocked-up newspaper story appears, carrying Muhammad's photo and the headline, "Sniper suspects held; links to N.J. probed." A spokesman for Garrett, who's vying for the House seat of retiring Rep. Marge Roukema, blasted the Sumers ad as a "sickening" attempt to exploit the sniper murders for votes.
