“A right-wing political action committee that supports a Republican incumbent in Arkansas has released radio advertisements so vile that the incumbent himself has denounced them.

The ads are produced by a PAC called Black Americans for the President’s Agenda and are meant to support Rep. French Hill (R-Ark.), who is running for re-election in Arkansas’ 2nd Congressional District.

In the ads, which aired in predominantly black areas of Arkansas, several people speak about abortion and the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh before concluding that a victory for Hill’s Democratic rival will lead to “race verdicts, life sentences and lynchings.”

“Our congressman, French Hill, and the Republicans know that it’s dangerous to change the presumption of innocence to the presumption of guilt, especially for black men,” a woman says in one of the ads.”
