JFK Nephew Asks McMahon To Pull Ad

Archival Footage, Words Of Former President Used By Candidate

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon's online campaign ad using John F. Kennedy's words and image has drawn criticism from a member of the former president's politically prominent family.
McMahon's new ad features archival footage of JFK speaking in August 1963 about the need for a tax cut, saying the move will help stave off a recession and create new jobs.
But Edward M. Kennedy Jr., nephew of the president and son of former Massachusetts Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, called the ad "dishonest' because it implies JFK would have supported McMahon's tax policy.
"You attempt to conflate your economic policies with those of President Kennedy's in order to capitalize on his legacy,'' Kennedy wrote to the McMahon campaign. "Please stop misleading voters."...........
