Dueling Ads in District 9 race
Phyllis Busansky launched two mini-ads yesterday attacking Bilirakis' stance on GOP leaders' handling of Foley scandal. Today Bilirakis' campaign attacked the attack ad for miscasting Bilirakis' comment as a reaction to Foley's indiscretions. Excerpt of the statement from Liz Hittos, Bilirakis' Deputy Campaign Manager, (quoting herself):
“Phyllis Busansky is clearly a desperate candidate willing to blatantly distort the truth in order to salvage her struggling campaign....In her attempt to make political hay out of one member's aberrant and quite possibly criminal behavior Phyllis has lied to the very people she hopes to represent in Washington—she should be ashamed."
Bilirakis also launched new ad today, blasting Busansky as a "negative campaigner and a high taxer."Download bilrakis_bulldozer.mpeg
