Pennsylvania Democratic congressional candidate Scott Wallace is being criticized in an advertisement released Thursday, which calls him out for donating $3 million to an organization sympathetic to convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.
Defending Main Street, a group that supports the “governing wing” of the Republican party and supports Wallace’s Republican opponent, Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, will run the $200,000 ad for two weeks in Pennsylvania’s 1st District. In the ad, Defending Main Street President Sarah Chamberlain calls out Wallace for his support of a cop killer and explains why she believes people should vote for Fitzpatrick for Congress.
“Officer Daniel Faulkner was silenced forever by Mumia Abu-Jamal. Thanks to Scott Wallace, Abu-Jamal has been given a public voice for more than two decades following this heinous crime,” Defending Main Street President Sarah Chamberlain said. “Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick has a decades-long record of public service and work on behalf of our nation’s national security. Scott Wallace does not deserve a seat in Congress.”
The $3 million Wallace donated was to a group named, “Democracy Now!,” a media organization that has had Abu-Jamal on its website for over 20 years. He has appeared in multiple interviews and articles on the website, and said during an interview that the movement for “justice” had begun after he murdered Faulkner.
Wallace is also a multi-millionaire who is known for giving large donations to big population control groups. For example, Wallace has provided millions of dollars to groups that want to persuade people from “irresponsible breeding” by raising their taxes.(RELATED: Millionaire Democratic Candidate Supported Population Control With Big Donations)
Fitzpatrick currently serves as the representative in the 1st district and previously served as an agent in the F.B.I. hopes to hang on to his seat. Real Clear Politics has the race listed as a “tossup,” as some polls have Fitzpatrick up by over 4 points and other polls have Wallace up by just over 1 point.
