George H.W. Bush to Nunn: Your Ads Are Disrespectful

Michelle Nunn has been asked by President George H.W. Bush to stop using his image in her political ads. Bush endorsed Republican David Perdue in the Georgia Senate race earlier this year.

Now Nunn is at it again, releasing a new ad that uses President Bush’s image without his consent this morning. Bush spokesman Jim McGrath replied:

“Michelle and her team have been clearly, repeatedly and consistently told that President Bush did not want them to use his photo as part of this campaign. Apparently, the Nunn team feels they can repeatedly disregard the former president’s wishes, which is very disappointing because it’s so disrespectful.”
