Congressman Allen West’s Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy has hit back hard after last week’s West ad that showed his mugshot. Murphy’s ad takes the Call of Duty-esque premise of West’s and turns it on its head: he puts a dent in West’s war hero reputation by basing the ad around an incident in which West, a lieutenant colonel in Iraq, fired a gun next to an Iraqi prisoner’s head and faced possible court martial.
The Murray campaign told TPM that it had spent $175,000 on airing the ad.
