Despite calls for an apology by Gabby Giffords, Ron Barber, Mark Kelly, and others over despicable political attack by AZGOP, McCain has made no public comment
John McCain continues to remain silent five days after his cronies at the Arizona Republican Party launched a tasteless and dangerous political attack featuring bullet holes around a picture of Democratic senate nominee Ann Kirkpatrick.
No public denunciation. No apology.
Even after the Republican party ridiculously claimed the poster was “cheeky” and that the bullet holes were “something that was nailed to a tree or wall,” McCain offered no condemnation. No straight talk.
Additionally, former Reps. Gabby Giffords and Ron Barber, as well as Giffords’ husband Mark Kelly, Arizona Democratic Party Chairwoman Alexis Tameron, and numerous media members have all denounced the terrible political attack and called for an apology, but McCain has yet to say a word.
“John McCain’s silence on this disgusting attack speaks volumes about how he’ll do or say anything to win an election after 33 years in Washington,” said Arizona Democratic Party Communications Director Enrique Gutierrez. “Arizonans deserve leaders who will always stand up and do the right thing, not just when it’s politically convenient. And, clearly, McCain is no longer interested in being a leader.”
