Six Days: McCain still silent on AZGOP’s bullet-hole poster

Even as backlash continues to grow, McCain has refused to comment

Six days have passed since the Arizona Republican Party attempted a disgusting and dangerous political attack that placed bullet holes around an image of Democratic Senate nominee Ann Kirkpatrick -- and Arizonans have yet to hear John McCain say anything.

As the public backlash grows against his cronies at the AZGOP, McCain and his campaign have dodged questions and refused to comment. He even stayed silent after former Reps. Gabby Giffords and Ron Barber denounced the attack and called for an apology.

“John McCain used to brag about his ‘straight talk,’ but it’s clear he won’t stand up to his cronies at the Arizona Republican Party over this dangerous and reckless attack,” said Arizona Democratic Party Communications Director Enrique Gutierrez. “McCain’s silence is more proof that he’s changed after 33 years in Washington -- and Arizonans are listening.”
