Accuracy in Media

Latino Victory, a non-profit organization run by former Hillary Clinton campaign staffers and Democratic staffers, published a video ad slamming Republican gubernatorial candidate for Virginia, Ed Gillespie, for allegedly racist and bigoted rhetoric during the election cycle.

Gillespie is running a close race against Democratic nominee Ralph Northam, with polls putting Northam up double digits or ahead by single digits.

The ad portrayed a character similar to Ed Gillespie driving a pick-up truck with a Tea Party ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ license plate and a Confederate battle flag in the bed of the truck, running down children who were minorities.

The ad was criticized as toxic, and after a recent terrorist attack by an Uzbekistan citizen in New York City by way of using a rented work truck, Latino Victory pulled the ad.
