Distorted Audio in Ad Draws Criticism

Connecticut gubernatorial candidate John McKinney (R) ran his first ad of the election cycle which included audio of rival Tom Foley (R) that was significantly edited to change its meaning, the Hartford Courant reports.

In the commercial, Foley is twice heard saying, "I'm not going to cut spending."

But according to the original audio from the radio station that ran the interview, Foley actually said the following: "I'm not saying I'm going to cut spending; I'm saying I'm going to hold spending flat."
