Rob McCord released a new ad hammering the relationship between Tom Wolf and “admitted racist” York Mayor of 1969, Charlie Robertson.
“[Wolf] spent millions on tv ads but now serious questions Tom Wolf can’t answer,” a woman’s voice reads. “Why would he chair the campaign of a man arrested for his role in a race riot, one that left a black woman dead? Why would wolf stand by an admitted racist charged with first degree murder, one who shouted white power and handed out ammunition at a race riot?”
Robertson was found not guilty in that charge of first degree murder, and Wolf has stated that his role on Robertson’s campaign was more of an emeritus position than an active role in his election.
It’s also interesting that McCord begins the ad pointing out that Wolf spent millions on television advertising, when he, too, contributed nearly $2 million to his own campaign. Wolf, of course, contributed $10 million, just under half of which came from a personal loan.
