Trayvon Martin's Death Used in Anonymous Attack Ad Against Frederica Wilson

wilsonflyer1.jpg
Last Monday, Banana Republican came across a glossy flyer on our windshield that featured a photo of President Barack Obama next to the now iconic image of Trayvon Martin wearing his hoodie. Printed below the slain teen's chin were the commander-in-chief's statement on March 23, "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon." Was this some guerrilla marketer who wanted to subliminally induce us with weak-kneed liberal hyperbole about the boy's death at the hands of an overzealous neighborhood watch captain? Not really. Once we flipped the card over, we realized it was just a not-so-clever, anonymous attack ad against Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, who is running for reelection against her old foe, physician Rudolph Moise.

A big bold yellow headline proclaimed, "Don't Be Fooled!" The flyer jabs Wilson's reply to WPLG political reporter Michael Putney's question about why she voted for the Stand Your Ground law while in the Florida House. The card urged us to call Wilson's Miami district office and ask her, "Why did you vote YES for the bill that protects Trayvon Martin's killer?"

Of course there is no way of knowing who produced the flyer because it doesn't say who paid for it, which is illegal under federal campaign laws.

Wilson's camp has a sneaky suspicion it may have come from Moise. But we couldn't reach him for comment about the ad. The number to his campaign office is disconnected and he didn't return a phone message left at his clinic.

"If the flyer is tied to Rudy Moise, it is an FEC violation," says Wilson campaign spokesman Alexis Snyder. "It is a misrepresentation of the congresswoman. Shame on Rudy Moise."

This woman belongs in a circus, she is a clown, a racist and a disgusting hater of white people, just like her president and his ugly assed wife.

Mrs. Fredrica Wilson has ,and continues to be a pillar of strenght in her community.She carries the burden of representing those who cannot be heard.I have been a witness to her deeds both in the public eye,and behind closed doors. As a child I had the opportunity to be around Mrs Wilson and her family,the same affection that she gave to her dear son Pauley Wilson is no different then what she offers to her district. Its easy to make negative comments about those who you dont know,but its impossible for those who do know Mrs Wilson to ever make such negative remarks.She's a remarkable person,who continues to do remarkable things.

LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! I dress like an idiot for attention! I go to Washington and expect to be treated equally even though I go out of my way to be different. The Marlins should name the ugly statue in their ballpark Frederica Wilson.

Florida Democrats can be just as bat-shit crazy as the Republicans. Frederica, Alcee Hastings and of course our own illiterate, ghetto pig with a Masters in Education of all things, Corrine Brown takes the cake.

I do not understand how the flyer "is a misrepresentation of the congresswoman" as it sounds pretty much right-on to me...

silly little fliers are against the law, but anonymous million-dollar campaign contributions are OK?  How pointless are our laws?

Why are you so angry? You can use that energy to say exactly what you mean. What is a racist? How did she become a racist? Are you calling Congress a circus? What does that have to do with the president? What makes anyone ugly? 

Only a coward would start the hatred and racism of the world and then at every little opportunity accuses his victims of hatred and racism because his motive would be to conceal his evil heart.

LOL.  They gotta dress that way to disguise how incompetent they are.  Im surprised she can read and write.  These are the imbeciles that are destroying this nation, voted in by a minority who are as stupid as she is.
