Dem To Double Amputee Combat Veteran: “You’re Not Man Enough To Stand Behind Your Own Ads”

During a candidate forum hosted by the TC Palm, Democrat Randy Perkins attacked his Republican opponent, combat veteran Brian Mast, for a TV ad that Perkins said was untrue.

Perkins, who repeatedly got heated and raised his voice during the forum, accused Mast of not being “man enough” to stand behind an ad. The ad in question was paid for by the NRCC, not Mast, and is no longer on the airwaves.

“You’ll let the [NRCC] do your dirty work for you, but you’re not man enough to stand behind your own ads.” Perkins said. “So be a man, and stand behind your own ads.”

“I’m constantly a man,” replied Mast, a double amputee.
