MANCHESTER, NH – Today, Cornerstone Action launched a new radio ad, “Terriblemente Liberal,” which highlights reports in the Union Leader that US Senate candidate Bill Binnie shipped US jobs to a plant in Mexico. The ad also talks about the deplorable working conditions at Binnie’s Mexican factory.
Commenting on the new ad was Cornerstone’s Executive Director, Kevin Smith:
“At a time when families in NH continue to struggle to find work or stay employed, we thought it was important that voters know about Mr. Binnie’s record of shipping good US jobs to foreign countries. Additionally, we were very disturbed about reports of the poor working conditions for pregnant women at Mr. Binnie’s Mexican factory, as was noted by the international Human Rights Watch.”
The new ad will run statewide on NH radio for one week beginning Friday. To hear the new ad, Terribemente Liberal, click here.
The script for “Terriblemente Liberal” is as follows:
Woman: Honey, is that today’s Union Leader?
Man: It is – and you’ll never guess what they are reporting about Bill Binnie now.
Woman: Let me guess – his shockingly liberal positions?
Woman: Really? But Binnie’s flashy ads talk about the jobs he created.
Man: Yes – but he doesn’t say where. Turns out he has a history of moving good American jobs to Mexico.
Man: Yes. Bill Binnie shut down his US factory and moved it to Tijuana, Mexico – costing hundreds of American jobs. While Binnie made millions, his Mexican plant employees worked in deplorable conditions. One woman even reported having a miscarriage after working on her feet for too long.
Woman: That’s terrible! How can he defend that?
Man: Well, according to the Union Leader, Binnie is “denying the facts.”
Woman: Well apparently Bill Binnie is untrustworthy and shockingly liberal.
Man: (chuckle) Yeah, or as his employee’s might say, ‘terriblemente liberal’!
