Veterans Day Weekend Ad Discusses Sean Casten Attacking Veteran Dan Crenshaw
On Friday in Facebook, 6th congressional district Republican candidate Jeanne Ives launched a digital attack ad against Congressman Sean Casten over Casten’s comments last month calling Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw a “racist” at a town hall meeting on October 5th.
The Facebook video of the ad is embedded below, and you’ll need to click the sound icon to hear the ad:
If the gentleman doing talking in the ad looks familiar, he should. In late September, the Jeanne for Congress campaign introduced 4-time Purple Heart recipient Paul Hall as a supporter for her campaign, who is Congressman Casten’s next door neighbor in Downers Grove.
A clarification of what Mr. Hall said in the ad. Crenshaw was introducing an amendment to a bill, H.R. 1, the For the People Act, through a Motion to Recommit, and not a bill.
The full context of the Casten-Crenshaw dispute can be viewed in this article from mid October, which includes video of what exactly both Casten said on October 5th and Crenshaw said on the floor of the House back on March 8th.
