Minnesota Democrats’ ad shows priest with ‘ignore the poor’ button

Catholic World News - October 26, 2010

The state central committee of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party is distributing an ad described by a National Catholic Register blogger as “the most anti-Catholic political ad you’ll ever see.” In the ad, a man dressed as a priest wears a campaign button that says “ignore the poor.”

In 1944, the Minnesota Democratic Party and the Farmer-Labor Party merged to form the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party.

    Incredible! It's the Catholic vote that the DFL has enjoyed forever in Minnesota. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you!
