(Harrisburg) -- Republican candidate David Freed has launched the first attack ad of his campaign for Pennsylvania attorney general, suggesting voters cannot trust Democratic candidate Kathleen Kane.
Freed's 30-second spot takes Kane to task for erroneously claiming she was endorsed by the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association and for accepting campaign contributions from special interests after criticizing the practice during the primary campaign last spring.
A female narrator concludes the ad by saying "We just can't trust Kathleen Kane."
Kane has said the false claim of a state troopers endorsement resulted from a mistake by a campaign intern. Her campaign spokesman, Josh Morrow, says Freed's ad is a sign of "desperate campaigning" by Gov. Tom Corbett's hand-picked choice for attorney general.
Kane has not aired any negative ads against Freed.
