Springfield – For the second time of his campaign, Governor Pat Quinn was forced today to pull his latest attack ad from the airwaves for misleading attacks against Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Brady.
Yesterday, Brady for Illinois was notified by two television stations in the Springfield-Decatur/ Champaign market of a decision forcing the Quinn campaign to pull its latest TV attack ad for falsely charging that Brady missed 58 percent of the session days in the Illinois State Senate.
“Once again, Pat Quinn’s smear machine has been caught lying about Bill Brady’s record, misleading voters with yet another ad that distorts the truth, and offers no ideas for fixing the fiscal mess on the Governor’s watch,” said Brady Campaign Manager Jerry Clarke.
The move comes after an earlier ad by Pat Quinn, the first of his campaign and funded by the Democratic Governors Association, was pulled after the Daily Herald reported the ad “crossed ethical lines,” by lifting footage from the taxpayer funded General Assembly's website, and was misleading to viewers.
Brady (R-Bloomington) is a small business owner who has represented his community as state Senator since 2002. He is running for governor to bring a clean break to Illinois and build a job-growing environment. More information can be found at bradyforilliois.com.
