Mary Landrieu Ad: GOP Will Impeach Obama If Bill Cassidy Wins

AP

A new one-minute radio ad by Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) claims Republicans will impeach President Barack Obama if she loses her tough runoff election this Saturday.

The spot, first reported by Andrew Kaczynski of BuzzFeed, features New Orleans-area Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) issuing the warning.

“This is Congressman Cedric Richmond,” he says. “Have you heard the crazy stuff Bill Cassidy, Bobby Jindal and the Republicans are always saying about President Obama? They have shown our president so much disrespect. They said he wasn’t a U.S. citizen, they even sued him. And if Cassidy wins, they will impeach him.”

At the top of the ad, Landrieu says, “I’m Mary Landrieu, candidate for Senate, and I approve this message.”
