Dear fools: Morgan Freeman doesn’t do ads for Republican B.J. Lawson, whoever that is

Lawson for Congress Confirms Morgan Freeman Narration in Latest TV and Radio Ad

CARY, N.C. — In response to numerous queries and enthusiastic feedback, the Lawson for Congress campaign confirms that its latest radio and TV ad is indeed narrated by actor Morgan Freeman . .

Can we call this imitation ‘spot-on’? I don’t think so:

Obviously, that’s no accident. Someone’s a fraudster . .

(CNN) – North Carolina Republican congressional candidate B.J. Lawson’s campaign said it was “tricked” by a production company after it was revealed that actor Morgan Freeman was not the narrator in Lawson’s latest ad, as the campaign had previously claimed.

“We’re apologizing to Congressman Price, to the voters, and most of all to Morgan Freeman because this is not the campaign we wanted to run, and not the campaign we have run,” Lawson campaign spokesman Martin Avila told CNN . .

“These people are lying. I have never recorded any campaign ads for B.J. Lawson and I do not support his candidacy. And, no one who represents me ever has ever authorized the use of my name, voice or any other likeness in support of Mr. Lawson or his candidacy,” Freeman said in the statement.

I like how the Lawson campaign is most apologetic to the actor. Sure, there are voters involved, but you don’t want Morgan Freeman to be mad at you.
