Republican lieutenant governor candidate Will Ainsworth on Wednesday began airing a new campaign commercial that focuses on fighting government corruption and portrays career politicians as masked burglars.
“This ad acknowledges that those who steal from others to enrich themselves are criminals whether they wear a ski mask in a bank or a suit and tie in the Alabama State House,” Ainsworth said. “Far too often, career politicians lose their perspective, become numb to corruption, and fall prey to the temptations that the political systems offers. As a newcomer to public service, that is why I sponsored term limit legislation in the Alabama House, and it is why I’ll help ensure that politicians who engage in corruption will experience the inside of a jail cell.”
The new campaign spot for Ainsworth, who is a first-term member of the Alabama House representing portions of Marshall, Blount, and DeKalb counties, is part of a massive $1.2 million media buy placed by his campaign and currently airs on network and cable stations across the state as well as in on-line digital and social media formats.

Its script reads:
WILL: I’m Will Ainsworth. Would you be more worried if the career politicians holding Alabama’s future hostage looked like this?
