California Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter, who was indicted in August on charges of using campaign funds for personal expenses, is facing criticism over an ad calling his opponent, Ammar Campa-Najjar, a “security risk.”
The ad also accuses Campa-Najjar of changing his name to “hide” his family’s connection to terrorism in reference to his grandfather’s involvement in the 1972 Munich Olympics terror plot. The narrator says Campa-Najjar’s grandfather was the mastermind behind the attack, although a different member of the terror group that carried out the attack took responsibility in 1999.
