Another prominent Democrat has commented on the campaign advertisement put out by the Missouri chapter of America Coming Together – a group that is not linked with the Missouri Democratic Party but works to elect Democrats and to defeat Republicans. The ad features a Civil Rights Era image of a Black man being hosed, along with a number of claims that Republicans are trying to keep African Americans from voting. Speaking to Missourinet’s Steve Walsh, Farmer talked about voter suppression being a huge problem – claiming Senator Bond was part of the voter suppression effort in 2000 – and suggested ACT Missouri is raising a valid issue. She refused to condemn the ACT Missouri’s ad. State Auditor Claire McCaskill, the Democratic candidate for Governor, addressed the ad this week, saying it was “over the top.”
