Is a super PAC ad deceiving PA voters? Trump campaign threatens litigation.

Share

A 30-second advertisement produced by the Pennsylvania Values Super PAC drew scrutiny for its portrayal of former President Donald Trump’s stance on mail-in voting. The ad, which features old clips of Trump discussing mail-in ballot fraud, concludes with a slide urging Pennsylvania voters to “stand strong with President Trump against mail-in voting.”

In response, Trump’s campaign alleged in a letter to the Super PAC that the ad falsely claims Trump urged Pennsylvania voters not to vote by mail. The campaign’s attorney asserted that such claims could constitute a “criminal and civil conspiracy to injure the rights of President Trump’s supporters to cast their ballots in Pennsylvania.”

The accusation evokes parallels to previous legal cases involving election misinformation. Last year, Douglass Mackey received a seven-month prison sentence for social media posts encouraging Hillary Clinton voters to cast their vote via text messages.

The Pennsylvania Values Super PAC, backed by Democratic supporters, has not issued a public statement addressing the controversy surrounding its advertisement.

While Trump has expressed concerns about mail-in voting fraud, as highlighted in the ad, he has also advocated for absentee voting as a valid option for voters unable to reach polling places. In April, Trump posted on his platform Truth Social saying, “Absentee voting, early voting and Election Day voting are all good options.”

A CONTROVERSIAL POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM GOOGLE – CITING A “POLICY VIOLATION”.  

IT’S UNCLEAR WHAT THAT VIOLATION WAS –

BUT TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN IS THREATENING THE SUPER PAC BEHIND THE AD WITH LEGAL ACTION –

SAYING THE ADVERTISEMENT “FALSELY CLAIMS THAT TRUMP WANTS PENNSYLVANIA VOTERS **NOT TO VOTE BY MAIL.”

IT’S A 30 SECOND SPOT – HERE’S A SNIPPET OF IT.

Maga patriots listen to our president – 

Mail in voting is totally corrupt, get that through your head.

THE PENNSYLVANIA VALUES SUPER PAC – BACKED BY DEMOCRATS – WAS POSING AS PRO-TRUMP IN THE AD –

CALLING ON “MAGA PATRIOTS” TO “LISTEN TO **OUR PRESIDENT” –

IN THE OPENING SLIDE –

BEFORE PLAYING OLD CLIPS OF TRUMP TALKING ABOUT MAIL IN BALLOT FRAUD.

IT’S THAT LAST SLIDE – ENCOURAGING PENNSYLVANIA VOTERS TO “STAND STRONG WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP AGAINST MAIL IN VOTING” –

THAT THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN SAYS HAS LEGAL IMPLICATIONS.

IN A LETTER TO THE SUPER PAC –

AN ATTORNEY FOR THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WROTE –

“WE ARE AWARE OF YOUR ADVERTISEMENT FALSELY CLAIMING THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS ASKED PENNSYLVANIA VOTERS NOT TO VOTE BY MAIL. THIS ADVERTISEMENT MAY CONSTITUTE BOTH A CRIMINAL AND CIVIL CONSPIRACY TO INJURE THE RIGHTS OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S SUPPORTERS TO CAST THEIR BALLOTS IN PENNSYLVANIA.”

THE CONSPIRACY ACCUSATION IS REMINISCENT OF A CASE LAST YEAR.

DOUGLASS MACKEY –  SENTENCED TO 7 MONTHS IN PRISON FOR UPLOADING THIS MEME –– ENCOURAGING HILLARY CLINTON VOTERS IN 2016 TO VOTE VIA TEXT.

WHICH – IS OF COURSE – NOT A VALID WAY OF CASTING VOTES.

TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN IS ALLEGING THIS SUPER PAC BROKE THE SAME LAW MACKEY WAS FOUND GUILTY OF VIOLATING.

THE PENNSYLVANIA SUPER PAC HAS NOT PUBLICLY COMMENTED ON THE CONTROVERSY SPARKED FROM ITS ADVERTISEMENT.

WHILE TRUMP HAS BEEN VOCAL ABOUT MAIL-IN VOTING FRAUD – AS SEEN IN THE CLIPS IN THIS ELECTION AD – 

TRUMP HAS ENCOURAGED THOSE WHO MAY NOT BE ABLE TO VOTE AT THE POLLS  – TO REQUEST A MAIL-IN BALLOT FOR ABSENTEE VOTING.

TRUMP POSTING ON TRUTH SOCIAL EARLIER THIS YEAR –

ABSENTEE VOTING, EARLY VOTING, AND ELECTION DAY VOTING ARE ALL GOOD OPTIONS.”
