Deceptive ad paints PA-177 Dem candidate as ‘terrorist sympathizer’ | City & State PA

Race must be tight, time to sling the mud.

    Deceptive ad paints PA-177 Dem candidate as 'terrorist sympathizer' | City & State PA
    Sean Kilkenny, a union-backed candidate in Northeast Philly's 177th House District Democratic primary, has distributed a clutch of attack mailers that inaccurately cites past reporting by City&State PA to paint opponent Joe Hohenstein as a "terrorist sympathizer." The mailers refer to a report from November 2016 that describes an even older attack ad circulated by former Republican state Rep.
