Ad insensitive, offensive

May 9, 2014

Let me begin by saying that I’m not all that big on politics. But I heard an advertisement on the radio recently that I need to say something about.

The ad is talking about an accident that occurred on U.S. 23, where a mother and her three children lost their lives. As a mother who has suffered the loss of her only child, I find that the ad is disgraceful.

How could anyone use such a tragic event for a political ad? This family has suffered and will continue to for the rest of their lives. John Hunt should be ashamed of himself.

I can only speak for myself, but I would never vote for aanyone who would use a tragedy for political gain. I don’t know Mr. Hunt, but I think he made a mistake running this ad. It’s very insensitive to the family and anyone who has lost a loved one in a tragic accident. Personally, I find it very offensive.
