Illegal Unattributed Smear Palin Ads from the Same PR Firm Obama Campaign Uses

Posted by iusbvision on September 22, 2008

UPDATE: Fox News Megyn Kelly Covers the Story! comments HERE.

FEC rules require that political ads have to say who paid for them. These are totally dishonest smear ads that have been debunked by and other legit news outfits, yet Winner and Associates, a PR firm that has been used by David Axelrod and the Obama campaign has been making these illegal ads and posting them on youtube and other places on the internet.

  • Evidence suggests that a YouTube video with false claims about Palin was uploaded and promoted by members of a professional PR firm.
  • The family that runs the PR firm has extensive ties to the Democratic Party, the netroots, and are staunch Obama supporters.
  • Evidence suggests that the firm engaged in a concerted effort to distribute the video in such a way that it would appear to have gone viral on its own. Yet this effort took place on company time.
  • Evidence suggests that these distribution efforts included actions by at least one employee of the firm who is unconnected with the family running the company.
  • The voice-over artist used in this supposedly amateur video is a professional.
  • This same voice-over artist has worked extensively with David Axelrod’s firm, which has a history of engaging in phony grassroots efforts, otherwise known as “astroturfing.”
  • David Axelrod is Barack Obama’s chief media strategist.
  • The same voice-over artist has worked directly for the Barack Obama campaign.

Jawa Report has all the evidence HERE, Special thanks to Hotair for the heads up.
