This ad is approved by Curt Clawson. Paid for by Curt Clawson. The Outsider for Congress Committee.
This 31-second ad entitled, Stop, was posted on YouTube about seven days ago.
But this ad is inside the victim and mother. Outside is Curt Clawson. Outsider Curt Clawson will step far away putting himself on the outside and putting this victim’s mother, Annie, and the victim on the inside. The ad appears to be part of a competition. Like a game. It’s grandstanding. It’s brinkmanship. It’s poor judgment.
Joe Whitehead of the Joe Whitehead Show (from 98.9 FM WGUF Naples’ FM Talk) also pointed out the degradation of the ad. Mr. Whitehead receives accolade for standing up to opportunist Curt Clawson.
Fox4Now did a television sprint on the opinion of victim’s rights advocates who viewed the ad. Warren Wright interviewed Christine Kobie, coordinator of Abuse Counseling Treatment (ACT). Ms. Kobie feels the ad will re-awaken old wounds and more counseling will be required. She said the ad should have addressed public policy issues on child sexual abuse and victim’s rights.
