Black Louisiana State Sen. Elbert Guillory (R) released an explosive new ad obliterating the notion that U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D) has done anything for the local black community, despite the fact that blacks have helped keep her in office since 1996.
Produced by Free At Last PAC, the ad slams Landrieu for "sipping champagne at cocktail parties" while blacks in the communities she represents are "scrounging together food stamps to buy Kool Aid." Guillory points out that although Landrieu campaigned on being a "champion for the black community," she lives in a "$2 million mansion on Capitol Hill" while the streets and citizens in his hometown of Opelousas are worse off than they've ever been.
Quoting Thomas Sowell, Guillory says, "Politicians are not trying to solve our problems, they're trying to solve their own problems, of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two."
Guillory continues from the streets of Opelousas:
You are not Mary's cause and you are certainly not her charity. You are just a vote - nothing less, and nothing more. For her, you are just a means to an end, so that she remains in power.
Mary Landrieu knows that she doesn't have to do anything for our community because no matter what she does, 95% of us will line up and vote for her every single time.
Mary hasn't helped us at all. So on November 4th, let's send her back home to her father's house, or to her mansion in Washington D.C., or to wherever the heck she lives. Because one thing is for sure, she does not live here.
Currently, Free At Last PAC is trying to raise donations to get a 60-second version of this ad on television so that the people of Louisiana can truly see who they have been voting for. Allen West calls it "the most powerful message of the 2014 mid-terms.”
