A national organization is running a new campaign ad targeting Congressman Doug Collins, who recently announced his bid for United States Senate. The ad alleges that a bill Collins’ sponsored in Congress granted early release from prison for some sex traffickers.
One Nation is a 501(c)(4) organization that runs communications on public opinion research and grassroots-level advocacy “to shape attitudes on major issues and mobilize citizens to take action by contacting and interacting with policymakers in Washington.”
From the press release:
The new spot, “Pattern,” asks Georgians to call on Congressman Doug Collins to oppose legislation that would give the opportunity to dangerous prisoners for release into the community, and to stop working with liberals in Congress to grant release from prison to some sex traffickers and other sex offenders as he has done in the past. The advocacy effort includes a $1.2 million investment on television, cable, radio, and digital.
One Nation strongly supports the efforts of President Trump to sign the First Step Act into law – which protects our communities while simultaneously giving Americans a second chance. But Congressman Doug Collins’ bill, H.R. 3356, took a sharply different tack by allowing for early release even for some sex traffickers. The Collins bill was supported by House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries and Congressional Progressive Caucus Co-Chairwoman Pramila Jayapal, among others.
Text script of the video is below the video.
We need tough laws to keep violent criminals behind bars and off the streets.
But some in Congress want to take us in a dangerously different direction.
Congressman Collins sided with liberals and proposed legislation which would have allowed early release for certain sex traffickers, even some people caught with child pornography.
We can’t let this dangerous pattern continue.
Tell Congressman Collins he needs to stop supporting early release of dangerous criminals and oppose H.R. 3795.
