GOP Congressman Condemns Supportive Ad

An Arkansas congressman is condemning a political ad made on his behalf that says “white Democrats will be lynching black folk again.”

The radio ad in support of Republican Rep. French Hill’s re-election cites the contentious Supreme Court confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and the sexual assault allegations levied against him during the process.

“Our congressman, French Hill, and the Republicans know that it’s dangerous to change the presumption of innocence to a presumption of guilt especially for black men,” one woman said.

“If the Democrats can do that to a white justice of the Supreme Court with no evidence, no corroboration and all of her witnesses including her best friend say it didn’t happen, what will happen to our husbands, our fathers or our sons when a white girl lies on them?” another woman asked.
