You’re probably going not going to hear much about this story, mostly because most musicians tend to lean to the left, thus they are probably not going to complain about it. But according to WLWT in Cincinatti, images of members of some hard rock bands have been used in an attack ad against Steve Franzen, Republican candidate for Kentucky’s Campbell County Attorney.
Jim Daley, [Democrat] released a flier with misleading information on one side and pictures of rock stars from the bands Stone Sour, Avenged Sevenfold and Disturbed with no connection to Franzen on the other.
“Supposedly they’re my clients, but I haven’t seen any of these people,” Franzen said. “I don’t know anything about them, other than supposedly they’re rock musicians.”
Franzen said he’s uncertain of the legality of what Daley sent out.
Notice how neither the article, nor the accompanying video make any mention of which political party the candidates are affiliated in. I had to do a Google search to find out that Franzen is the Republican and Daley, the guy who used the images of Rock Stars as “criminals” is the Democrat. You could be damn sure that if the political parties were reversed, they would have then been mentioned in the story.
