Who is harold ford jr dating
Coming from Tennessee, a place that wouldn't even send their own native son, Al Gore, to the White House, Ford had his work cut out for him. He had to make sure that Cleland's honor was destroyed as well.
Portraying Cleland as soft on national defense would seem a laugh.
Unfortunately, it worked and Senator Cleland lost his seat.
But remember Scott Howell's slogan: "now they are senators." He got the job done. Also being the ad man for Senator George Allen, Terry Nelson hired him at some point to take care of Harold Ford, Jr.
He and Nelson pulled out all the stops for this one.
The ad Howell produced lies on every account about Harold Ford, Jr., but it doesn't stop there.
Howell reaches into the deep, dark, dirty message of the south we are all trying to leave to history, resurrecting the racial prejudice one more time to get his client elected. Unfortunately, it had done it's dirty work and tied the race.
The ad is complete with a naked blonde winking into the camera as she asks Harold to "call me." The ad is pure race baiting, bringing to mind the image of an old stereotype of a black man dating a blonde woman. The ad has made it from coast to coast, cheapening everything about Ford and causing a riot of criticism, until the ad had to be pulled. Scott Howell took a Super Bowl party thrown by Playboy magazine, which was attended by over 4,000 people (some estimates even higher), including conservatives, and turned it into the insinuation of some private, smutty affair that no decent Tennessean supposedly would ever attend.
ACCURACY The mention of the Playboy party is related to reports that Mr.
Ford went to a party given by Playboy magazine in Jacksonville, Fla., at the time of the 2005 Super Bowl.
