Sarah Palin calls Ashley Judds ad reprehensible and hypocriticalFebruary 5th, 2009 - 5:12 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Feb 05 (ANI): Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has struck back at the Defenders of Wildlife ad, featuring actress Ashley Judd, that accuses her of encouraging the aerial hunting of wolves.
The organisation launched the campaign targeting Palin with a new Website, EyeonPalin.org.
In a video, Judd condemns Palin for allegedly promoting the aerial killing of wolves in Alaska, and goes so far as to accuse Palin of proposing bounties for severed forelegs of killed wolves.
However, in a statement released through the governors office, Palin called the ad reprehensible and hypocritical.
The ad campaign by this extreme fringe group, as Alaskans have witnessed over the last several years, distorts the facts about Alaskas wildlife management programs, Politico.com quoted Palin, as saying.
These audacious fundraising attempts misrepresent what goes on in Alaska, and I encourage people to learn the facts about Alaskas positive record of managing wildlife for abundance.
Shame on the Defenders of Wildlife for twisting the truth in an effort to raise funds from innocent and hard-pressed Americans struggling with these rough economic times, she added. (ANI)
