Murderer in Political Ad Endorses Republican

Murderer in Political Ad Endorses Republican


Nikko Jenkins Endorses Lee Terry.  Marjorie Sturgeon of KMTV in Omaha, Nebraska reports that Nikko Jenkins, who appeared at a hearing regarding his mental competency, made a political endorsement.

Jenkins, 28, who killed four people in Omaha in 2013, was the star of a Willie Horton style ad produced by the Republican National Committee on behalf of Republican Congressman Lee Terry.  Rep. Terry is said to be behind in the polls.

Welp, apparently Jenkins, has seen the ads.

“Vote Lee Terry guys, greatest Republican ever. He worships my [unintelligible],” Jenkins shouted in court.  “Vote for Lee Terry. He’s a great guy,” he added, as reported by KMTV.

Anyone want to guess what the “unintelligible” was?  The political ad featuring Jenkins has been roundly criticized by both Democrats and Republicans.  Former RNC Chairman Michael Steel said the ad verified that the political consultants were stupid and classified the ads as racist.

Jenkins, a diagnosed schizophrenic, has been known for his courtroom antics in past court appearances.
