Group launching billboard attack on Driehaus
By: Quan Truong
The Susan B. Anthony List is putting up four billboards attacking U.S. Rep Steve Driehaus (D-West Price Hill.)
The billboards will go up by Oct. 4 and stay through at least Oct. 31. The locations will be on Interstate 74 near the Colerain Avenue exit, Queen City and Harrison avenues, Reading and William Howard Taft roads, and one somewhere along I-75.
This is the same group that came to Cincinnati in August as part of its “Votes Have Consequences” bus tour. Our previous post on that can be read here.
Some pro-life groups, on the other hand, have been vocal about their support for Driehaus . To read more on that side of the debate, read this previous post.
Tim Mulvey, spokesman for Driehaus’ campaign, had this response Tuesday:
“The Susan B. Anthony List is spreading a lie–again. We’ve called on the SBA List and their allies to point to the single taxpayer dollar used to pay for an abortion. They can’t. They have no facts. They’re playing politics with abortion to promote a right-wing agenda.”
The organization is paying $55,000 for a total of 32 billboards. The others will target other anti-abortion Congressional Democrats in Indiana and Pennsylvania who voted for the health care bill.
This is what the billboard will look like:
