Yet another dark money group has inserted itself into the race for northern New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional District seat – this time targeting former CIA operative Valerie Plame with a pair of ads that call her a “disgraced racist millionaire.”
Plame is considered one of the favorites in the Democratic primary, which features seven candidates.
The ads – one in English and the other in Spanish – are produced by the Alliance to Combat Extremism, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit. The ads started airing on such digital platforms as YouTube and Facebook on Tuesday, two weeks before the June 2 Democratic primary. They seize on several issues that have plagued Plame in the past, including her retweet of an anti-Semitic article titled “America’s Jews are Driving American Wars” that appeared on the blogging site Unz Review in 2017.
