Congressional candidate Ken Sukhia's first TV ad highlights prosecution of Danny Rolling

North Florida Congressional candiate Ken Sukhia's first TV ad touches on a dark time in Florida history: The serial killings of Danny Rolling.

The ad glosses over an important distinction, however. Sukhia prosecuted Rolling for charges other than the murders, which happened in Gainesville.

David Bishop, a strategist for Suhkia, said in an email: "The state went to the feds asking them to prosecute Rolling on the bank robbery charge, which in turn allowed them to build the forensics case that was used in state prosecution. It was a key component because it placed Rolling in Gainesville at the time of the murders."
