Relatives of Jessica Ridgeway contacted 9NEWS shocked and outraged at a political ad that uses the 10-year-old’s death to attack the GOP challenger in a state legislative race.
“I am just totally disgusted by this,” said Christine Ridgeway, the grandmother of Jessica, whose murder at the hands of a local teenager gripped the Westminster area in 2012. “When I first saw this I was speechless for like four hours. I was just so angry and so upset that I just couldn’t speak.”
The political ad in question comes from a Democratic-leaning 527 group called “Priorities for Colorado.”
Of course it does.
