During the 2010 midterm elections, Randall Terry and his crew of anti-choice zealots discovered a way to get graphic anti-abortion ads to air on television by exploiting a loophole that prohibits broadcasters from refusing to run or censor campaign ads.
In the 2010 election, a woman named Missy Smith ran against Washington DC Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton simply for this purpose and Randall Terry himself is now “running” for president in as a Democrat for the same reason.
But Terry isn’t stopping there and is also apparently recruiting more phony “Democratic” candidates to similar run ads around the country:
A Highland, Illinois mother of 13 known for her protests outside a Granite City abortion clinic announces she’s running for Congress as a Democrat on the abortion issue.
Retired obstetrics nurse Angela Michael says she wants to air more than 250 commercials in the St. Louis television market featuring images of aborted fetuses.
“I want America to see the message behind abortions,” Michael said, “I want them to see what happens to babies daily. And I also want to show them healthy babies that we rescue and we save in our ultrasound van” …
Her decision to run was announced on the steps of the Old Court House in downtown St. Louis, flanked by pro-life presidential candidate Randall Terry, who is running as a Democrat. Terry, who says he is already running ads in Iowa, says he’s trying to create a “crisis of conscience.”
“If I can cause three or four percent of the Evangelicals and Catholics who voted in for Obama in 2008 to not vote for him in 2012, I could perhaps keep him from being elected,” Terry said, “I can’t beat Obama in the primary, obviously, but I can wound him.”
