A PAC dedicated solely to stopping Hillary Clinton from becoming president launched a new ad campaign in important primary states Tuesday, slamming Clinton for a “legacy” of corruption and scandal.
Hillary Clinton has been in the public spotlight for decades,” the 60-second spot from Stop Hillary PAC begins. “Her legacy of corruption and scandals go back for more than 30 years.”
The primarily black and white ad mentions her termination as an attorney investigating Watergate, investigations into the Whitewater real estate scandal and Travelgate as first lady, her handling of Benghazi and the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens, donations the Clinton Foundation has received from foreign governments, and her recently discovered private email account kept on a private server when she was Secretary of State.
“We want to make sure that we are reminding the voters who Hillary Clinton is and what her history of corruption and obstruction of justice is,” Stop Hillary PAC Chairman Ted Harvery told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We want to ensure that the mainstream media is not successful in defining who Hillary Clinton is and what her past is all about.”
The ad ends by showing an exasperated Clinton responding to a question about the government’s botched explanation for the attack in Benghazi. “What difference, at this point, does it make?” she had asked.
“What difference, indeed,” the narrator says as the view switches to a Hillary for 2016 campaign poster.
Stop Hillary PAC spent an initial $20,000 to air the 60-second spot and a condensed 30-second spot on TV and online, including social media, in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
“Hillary cannot be trusted, and should not be trusted to be president of the united states,” Harvey told TheDCNF.
She quietly announced her candidacy for president over the weekend. Here are the full-length version of the ad:
