Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn), who has crossed party lines to endorse Republican candidate Bob Turner for New York’s 9th Congressional District seat, slammed the Weprin campaign on Friday afternoon. As can be seen in the attached video and photos, the Weprin campaign ran a TV ad on Friday morning, which used an airplane heading toward buildings – just two days before the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The airplane has the words “Bob Turner For Congress” written on the side.
“Is this sick, is this nuts, who is running their operation”, Hikind demanded to know.
Hikind continued his rant: ‘Right before September 11th, this is the most irresponsible, despicable behavior. As a New Yorker, as a Democrat, I am calling on the other side to not just remove it as commercial, but I am asking for an apology to New Yorkers – it is Chutzpah, ultimate audacity!
