Recently, everyone has been piling on Miami Heat star Lebron James due to a myriad of things but I didn’t think that someone would use him in an attack ad against democratic attorney candidate Richard Cordray.
We get more from Cleveland.com:
LeBron James may be gone, but he’s not forgotten — even by those playing politics instead of basketball.
James is the face of an attack mail piece aimed at Democratic Attorney General Richard Cordray that is headed for some area mailboxes.
The mail campaign, launched by Americans United for Safe Streets, uses a photo of James on the cover with a tagline asking, “Florida took Lebron. What did we get in return?” On the mailer’s flip side, the punchline: “They sent us 92 illegal guns and gun-toting criminals. And Richard Cordray is letting them do it.”
The LeBron ad is one of a trio of mail pieces the anti-gun group is sending out against Cordray as well as three pieces being sent out against congressional candidate Tom Ganley. The group said it is sending the mailers to 175,000 homes and spending about $350,000.
The Washington D.C.-based group said Cordray is being targeted because he’s allowed Florida concealed carry gun permits to be accepted in Ohio even though Florida’s law allows people convicted of violent misdemeanor crimes and people charged with drug crimes to obtain the permits.
Eh, we’ve seen it all now and we learned another thing, Ohio will never get over Lebron James.
