Four GOP Senators Disavow Ayers Terrorist Robocalls
Senator Gordon Smith, Republican from Oregon, joins Senators Olympia Snowe, Norm Coleman and Susan Collins, in distancing themselves from the automated calls being used by the McCain-Palin campaign, meant to link Senator Obama to the activities of Professor William Ayers and the Weather Underground.
From the article:
Oregon's Gordon Smith has become the fourth Republican Senator to disavow John McCain's robocalls linking Barack Obama to Bill Ayers.
In a statement to the Huffington Post, Smith for Senate press secretary Lindsay Gilbride said:
"They [the Ayers calls] are not taking place in Oregon and Senator Smith does not condone these sort of calls. Negative robocalls are not appropriate and have no place in campaigns."
The McCain campaign's tactics have come under heavy fire in recent days, including from Republican Senators Norm Coleman, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins. Vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin even acknowledged that voters were becoming "irritated" by the onslaught of campaign calls. Meanwhile, McCain himself was forced to defend the tactic in a recent interview, saying "that robo call is exactly accurate."
