Unions launch new nursing home ad
Friday, Feb 28, 2014 - Posted by Rich Miller
* This is not the “killer” ad I’d heard about. That one may be coming next. We’ll just have to wait and see. I’ll leave comments opened for a few hours tonight so y’all can weigh in…
…Adding… The above ad is not the ad which will run tomorrow on all stations. The spot above had to be edited to remove a reference to NBC after a legal row over at ABC 7.
…Adding more… Here’s the script for the ad which will be aired everywhere but on WLS…
Narrator: Bruce Rauner says;
Bruce Rauner: “We’re going to Springfield and run Illinois like a business “
Narrator: But NBC reports Rauner’s business operated nursing homes where residents died from abuse and neglect.
Narrator: Arlene Townsend. Fell 18 times.
Narrator: Juanita Jackson. Suffered from malnutrition and dehydration.
Narrator: Elvira Nunziata. Strapped to her wheelchair. Fell downstairs. Not found for almost an hour.
Narrator: Court after court awarded more than $1 billion to victims’ families.
Rauner: “We’re going to run Illinois like a business “
Narrator: Hasn’t Bruce Rauner’s business done enough damage?
