Congressman Shot

A GOP congressman used audio of the Steve Scalise shooting in an ad for his Senate campaign


Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) released a new ad Monday for his Senate campaign featuring an audio recording from the shooting at a Virginia baseball field where Rep. Steve Scalise was wounded.

The video opens with the sound of gunshots and shouting with a message that reads "June 14: A Bernie Sanders supporter fires on Republican Congressmen. Mo Brooks gives his belt as a tourniquet to help the wounded. What’s the liberal media immediately ask?”

The video then cuts to a clip of Brooks speaking with reporters as one asks him "Does this change your views on the gun situation in America?”

Brooks responds that he is not changing his position on the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Shortly after the ad was released, people on Twitter criticized the use of the audio from the shooting saying Brooks was trying to politicize the event.
