Low politics as a congressman is linked to child abusers in TV advertisements released by rival

  • Home Republicans launch a TV ad linking Democratic Rep David Cicilline to a child rapist, murderer and predator
  • Cicilline worked as a defense lawyer twenty years ago and defended hardened criminals
  • Advertisement designed to boost GOP's hopeful Brendan Doherty, former head of state police, while making his first run for the office

What do a child rapist, murderer and predator have in common?

Democratic Rep David Cicilline, according to House Republicans who released a TV commercial in Rhode Island this week.

The advertisement refers to the age of freshmen as a lawyer two decades ago when he defended hardened criminals and was designed to stimulate GOP's hopeful Brendan Doherty.

In the past, the head of state police, Doherty makes his first tenure.

The ad echoes an attack on Doherty's own campaign that was launched last week and shows a picture of Cicilline on the screen next to the words & rapes, pedophiles and murderers & # 39 ;.

At the national level, democrats are not expected to regain control of the House in Tuesday's elections. But the seat of Cicilline in small, liberal Rhode Island would be a victory for the Republicans, who since 1992 have not captured a seat in the house that represents the state.

The GOP sees their best shot this year since then and both national parties have poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into TV ads in the last week of the race.

The NRCC ad is & # 39; one of the toughest ads I've ever seen in Rhode Island politics & quot ;, said former Democratic congressman Bob Weygand.

He said defense lawyers do not always love their clients, but their job is to defend them, and that should not reflect on them personally.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee called the ad & # 39; the worst type of gutter politics & # 39 ;, while Cicilline Campaign Manager Eric Hyers said the voters deserve a debate on the issues.

The Cicilline campaign published an advertisement on Republican advertisements on Wednesday and said that Doherty & # 39; does not want to talk about his agenda. & # 39;

Asked about the honesty of an ad attacking a lawyer for defending crimes accused, NRCC Cicilline spokesperson Nat Sillin criticized for choosing to fight for violent criminals & # 39; above the victims.

& # 39; David Cicilline chose to represent convicted child abusers and murders. He chose to make a career in that, & he said.

It's & # 39; one of the toughest ads I've ever seen in Rhode Island politics & # 39 ;, former Democratic Congressman Bob Weygand told the Washington Post and added that Cicilline's job should not reflect him personally .
