In election scandal, Rep. Joe Garcia targeted in NRCC Spanish-language radio ads

@MarcACaputo

The National Republican Congressional Committee announced it's running Spanish-language ads on three Miami stations bashing Democratic Rep. Joe Garcia for the election scandal that engulfed his office (some background here).

The script:

"Voter alert.  Political corruption and fraud are looking to plague our community. The Chief of Staff for Congressman Joe Garcia and his campaign manager are being investigated for carrying out an unprecedented plan to falsify hundreds of absentee ballot requests with the intention of manipulating Garcia's election. What's Garcia's reaction?  He says it was a well-intentioned effort.  A well-intentioned effort?  Committing fraud?  Garcia had the nerve to say that it's all part of how we do politics in our community.  No Mr. Garcia, fraud is not acceptable in our community and it's shameful for you to say that.  Call Joe Garcia today. Tell him that we are tired of the corruption and the fraud.  If he can't tell us the truth, the right thing to do is resign.

"The National Republican Congressional Committee paid for and is responsible for the content of this advertising. Not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee

Here it is in Spanish:

Alerta al votante.  La  corrupción política  y el fraude buscan plagar a nuestra comunidad. El Jefe de Despacho del  Congresista  Joe García  y su jefe de campaña están siendo investigados por llevar a cabo un plan sin precedente para falsificar cientos de solicitudes de boletas ausentes con la intención de manipular la elección de García.  ¿Cuál ha sido la reacción de García?  Dijo que fue un esfuerzo  "bien intencionado".  ¿!?Un esfuerzo bien intencionado?!?  ¿Cometer fraude?   García tuvo la osadía de decir que todo esto es parte de cómo hacemos política en nuestra comunidad.   No Señor García, el fraude no es aceptable en nuestra comunidad y es una vergüenza que diga eso.  Llame hoy a Joe García.  Dígale que estamos cansados de la corrupción y el fraude.  Si no nos puede decir la verdad, lo correcto es que renuncie.
