WATCH: The Most Offensive Ad Of 2012?
CONCORD, N.H. -- A relatively timid Republican primary -- as personal attack ads go -- took a turn for the vile on Thursday evening when a group of Ron Paul supporters released a video depicting Jon Huntsman as a Chairman Mao-style Manchurian Candidate.
The relationship between the group, "New Hampshire Liberty 4 Paul," which created the video, and the Paul campaign was not entirely clear, nor was the legitimacy of the group itself (as web videos go, this falls below the usual standards of Paul fans). The group has no other discernable online presence, the YouTube account was created on Jan. 4, and has posted only the single video -- all of which points to some ad hoc effort and not an actual campaign product.
When The Huffington Post contacted the poster of the video through YouTube to ask why they created the video and whether they had any formal association with the Paul campaign, NHLiberty4Paul replied: "Sorry, campaign has asked me not to speak to reporters."
The Paul campaign didn't return an email request for comment. click here to read more
