Group Uses LeBron James in Attack Ad on Candidate


If you didn't think there was any way to connect LeBron James, Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray, guns, concealed weapons laws, and crime, you'd be wrong. Because in Ohio, there's no better way to sully your opponents reputation than by comparing him to LeBron, even if the comparison makes zero sense.

Americans United for Safe Streets, an anti-gun group, is sending out this mailer to folks in Ohio.

The front: "Florida took LeBron. What did we get in return?

The back: "They sent us 92 illegal guns and gun-toting criminals. And Richard Cordray is letting them do it."
