Pryor’s Ebola Scare Ad Rated False

house-majority-pac-factcheck In a moment of sheer desperation, Mark Pryor launched a campaign ad tying his Republican opponent to the recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa. The ad was immediately denounced as “pretty alarmist” and “almost cartoonish.” Feeling the heat, Pryor defended his ad as “fair and accurate” at an all-hands-on-deck press conference. PolitiFact disagrees. The fact checker rated Pryor’s scare ad as false. Pryor has reached a new low in seeking to capitalize on a crisis just to keep his seat and the Democrats in power.
