Hypocrite Alert: Zephyr Teachout B-Roll Shows Up In Outside Group’s Ad

Zephyr Teachout has turned out to be a major campaign finance hypocrite. The Vermont native once said that Citizens United left “the door wide open for corruption.” Over the past few weeks though, she’s shown that you can’t trust Teachout to follow up her words with actions. First, Teachout embraced the billionaire Soros family. Now her campaign is shadily coordinating with an outside group working to elect her.

Last week the Washington Free Beacon reported that Teachout’s campaign had posted b-roll on Youtube for the express purpose of allowing outside groups to use the footage in ads. Here’s an example:

Now this morning, outside group End Citizens United has released an ad for her campaign. Look familiar:

They’re the exact same picture. Teachout likes to pretend that she’s a reformer, but as her actions have shown, all her talk is just empty words. She’s a carpetbagging hypocrite, and residents of New York’s 19th congressional district know it.
