Busted! Mississippi Attack Ads Calling Tea Partyers Racists Were Funded By The GOP

Remember those Mississippi attack ads that painted conservative Republicans and tea partyers as racists? Turns out they were funded by Senate Republicans, RedState Editor-in-Chief Erick Erickson has confirmed.

The advertisements by All Citizens for Mississippi, which attacked state Sen. Chris McDaniel and painted conservatives as racists, were partly funded by Sens. Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker and Roy Blunt.

“Mississippi Conservatives, in turn, was funded in part by Sally Bradshaw of the RNC’s Growth and Opportunity Project, former RNC Chairman and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, the United States Chamber of Commerce, and the political action committees created for Senators Mitch McConnell ($50,000), John Cornyn ($50,000), Rob Portman ($25,000), Bob Corker ($25,000), and Roy Blunt ($5,000),” the report said.

In fairness, Tea Party rallies pretty much sell the idea of the movement as inherently racist, no highly paid media consultant required…

Bottom-line: Even GOPers are telling the American public that conservative Republicans and Teabaggers are racists? Our work here is done.
