WASHINGTON, Jan. 31, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — Patrick Gaspard, Executive Director of the DNC, has written a letter on DNC letterhead suggesting to FCC licensed TV stations that they violate federal law, and refuse to run Presidential Candidate Randall Terry‘s campaign ads. Mr. Terry’s ads are protected by Federal Law.

Mr. Terry’s graphic ads have already run (in conjunction with the Iowa Caucus and the New Hampshire Primary) in eight states: Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Illinois, Missouri, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine.
The Terry Campaign Super Bowl Ad is scheduled to run in 13 cities in 6 states as of 1/30/12.
Mr. Terry has met all the legal qualifications to be on the ballot in New Hampshire, Missouri, and Oklahoma, and as a write in candidate for Illinois.
Mr. Terry’s attorney, Jason Craddock, affiliated with the Thomas More Society, states:
“The DNC’s action is sheer deceptive thuggery. They imagine themselves above the law and in their letter (which thinly veils their intent) they direct the media to break the law as well, all for the sake of hiding the gruesome, bloody reality of the President’s policies and promotion of abortion without limits.”
Mr. Terry States:
“I — unlike the President — can prove that I am a legally qualified candidate for President; that I am legally on the ballot in the states in question; that I have met every legal standard imposed on me by the FEC and the FCC.
“Which is more noteworthy: the arrogance, or the fear of the Obama/DNC team? We know that Obama does not want America to see an ad that shows his record of promoting child killing via unbridled abortion, but to openly call on stations to break the law shows a level of panic and folly that is surprising. Of course, if Obama would promote the murder of babies through abortion…why not promote the violation of FCC law? Pride goes before the fall, Mr. President.”
