Indicted Republican Duncan Hunter Runs A Racist 'Willie Horton' Ad

Duncan Hunter, the guy who threw his wife under the bus to answer for his campaign finance violations and affairs, is now running a viciously racist campaign.

Duncan Hunter is the guy who, indicted for campaign finance violations that include (allegedly) hotel rooms with five different "individuals"

...threw his wife under the bus as the person who handled his finances while he attended to congressional business.

Then he told reporters to "leave my wife out of it!"

Then he blamed "The Deep State."

And now, perhaps in the hopes that Republican voters have forgotten all about his impending TRIAL on December 3, Duncan Hunter is going full racist on his opponent. NPR:

As the race grows tighter, Hunter is attacking his Democratic challenger for his Palestinian heritage. A controversial television ad accuses Ammar Campa-Najjar of trying to "infiltrate" Congress. It says that Campa-Najjar changed his name to hide his family's connection to terrorism.

"He changed his name from Ammar Yasser Najjar to Ammar Campa-Najjar," said Hunter, "so he sounds Hispanic. ... That is how hard, by the way, that the radical Muslims are trying to infiltrate the U.S. government."

Actually, Ammar Campa-Najjar is Christian. And Campa is his Hispanic mother's family name.

This philanderer thief (allegedly) is running a racist campaign (not allegedly, for a fact). California voters should kick him out on his ass.
