This attack is against Rease’s campaign. Rease is making big strides against Manchin, who is easily within striking distance. Rease’s ads are short, professional, and hard hitting, showing pictures of Manchin all chummy with Osambo. No one would even know the setting of the still shots unless you would have watched that pathetic aggrandizement of a liberal bigots life. This so called uproar is the scummy family trying to help out another scummy family in their time of distress. Joe Manchin can’t say anything about the use of the picture but the poor little family members can. Hey, elites were coming to get ya. Rockefeller you’re next.
Sounds like they are making an issue out of nothing. This reminds me of 2006 when Jim Webb was running in VA and had images of President Reagan in his ads, implying some kind of endorsement from beyond the grave. Mrs Reagan was offended and asked that the ads be withdrawn and they were not. So the Byrd family has even less to complain about.
