Controversy

On Friday, October 29, 2004, the Greg Parke campaign aired a radio ad which portrayed Rep. Sanders (I-Vt) as being on friendly terms with pornographers, pedophiles, illegal aliens and terrorists. The ad was pulled the same day that it first aired. Parke was criticized by both the state chairman of the Vermont Republican Party, James Barnett and Vermont Lieutenant Governor Brian Dubie, as well as by other Vermont Republicans.[4]

Parke had earlier blamed Sanders for the September 11, 2001, World Trade Center attacks based on Sanders prior vote to cut the intelligence budget.[2]
