North Carolina Republican Congressional candidate Ilario Pantano had footage to die for when he made a campaign ad: an introduction from NBC anchor Stone Phillips and reporter Ann Curry. They just needed a little editing.
Here are the original quotes, with the cuts in brackets:
[His decision to take two lives led to rare criminal charges that could cost him his own life.] Ilario Pantano, described by one superior as having more integrity, dedication and drive than any Marine he’s ever met, [now stands charged with murder.]
You served in Gulf One, you got out, you got a big great job [at Goldman Sachs], a beautiful wife and a kid, then 9/11 happened, you come home, your hair is shaved off, you’re ready to head back into a war zone to help America.
