Grimes Uses European Model (Hansel?) In Coal Ad

Politico is reporting that Alison Lundergan Grimes’ first paid ad included “a European male model pretending to be a coal miner.” The ad featuring the European model (wonder if it’s Hansel… he’s so hot right now) was part of a “six-figure campaign targeting coal country.” Apparently the Grimes campaign thought “coal country” couldn’t tell the difference.

Additionally, Politico notes:

“Also available there are pictures of the same model dressed as a doctor, engineer, soldier, student, carpenter and painter. He is also shown making an obscene gesture toward the camera in one image.”

The Grimes campaign was quick to blame someone else for the mistake.
