A super PAC working to help Republicans in Congress released a new video Tuesday that focuses on alleged instances of Democratic activists inciting violence at Donald Trump rallies.
The Congressional Leadership Fund shared the TV spot with The Hill first. It shows a video shot by conservative activist James O'Keefe of a Democratic operative talking about hiring people to cause trouble at Trump rallies.
The operative, Robert Creamer, denied the accusation, calling it "outrageous," but he resigned from his role in the Democratic National Committee earlier this month to avoid "[becoming] a distraction" for Hillary Clinton's campaign, according to The Hill.
The spot also targets Creamer's wife, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., who appeared at a protest holding a sign calling Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner, the "gang of hate."
Her opponent, Republican Joan McCarthy Lasonde, called for Schakowsky to resign for her part inciting "violence to disrupt political activity."
"You likely participated in those activities and, in any event, must have known about them and could have stopped them," Lasonde said in a letter, according to The Observer.
"For far too long, Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky and her husband, convicted criminal Robert Creamer, have been unaccountable for their roles as instigators of liberal demonstrations," CFL spokeswoman Emily Davis told The Hill.
"Congress should get to the bottom of this and demand answers on the organized attacks on democracy and what role Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky may have played."
