Fulton GOP tells Eaves, Pitts 'You're fired!' in new ad

Posted By on Tue, Oct 19, 2010 at 6:03 PM

Typically, county commission races don't generate the kind of money that allows candidates to advertise on TV. Well, here comes the Fulton County GOP to the rescue! Moments ago ago, the county party unveiled a new ad it's bankrolled for two Republicans who are trying to unseat Democratic incumbents.

The ad, produced on behalf of Steve Broadbent, who's running against Chairman John Eaves, and Lori Henry, facing off against at-large Commissioner Robb Pitts, starts out by alleging that the two office-holders fired county employees who were attempting to blow the whistle on other staffers accused of stealing $200,000. That's a factually shaky statement, since only one employee was fired by County Manager Zach Williams, but why split hairs?

Interestingly, the GOP's press release says nothing of where and when the ad will run on TV.
