New Mexico Senate Candidate Allen Weh may win the award for most tasteless commercial ever.
There is nothing sacred. Even Twitter and Facebook vowed to ban anyone who posted pictures of James Foley's execution, even if it wasn't graphic. That would include photos of his killer pulled from the tape.
The masked man who beheaded journalist James Foley appears in a web video created in support of New Mexico Republican Senate candidate Allen Weh.
The ad, released by the New Mexico Republican Party, is a combination of clips of President Barack Obama golfing and smiling paired with violence. The video also features Weh's opponent, Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM).
Halfway through the one-minute video a still shot of Foley's not-yet-identified killer is displayed for a few seconds. Foley's image does not appear in the video, just the image of the jihadist, holding a knife.
Text at the end of the video reads "to change Washington, you must change your Senator."
Conservative radio host Lars Larson told Fox News on Tuesday that it was "perfectly fair" for Republican candidates to use images from a video of an American journalist being beheaded in campaign ads attacking President Barack Obama.
