There may be a reason for that “chip in” Twitter flurry – via the Great Orange Satan.

Akin Ads Pulled Due to Lack of Payment

COLUMBIA – Republican senatorial candidate Todd Akin’s latest round of political ads have been pulled from the airwaves of KOMU 8 and other Missouri TV stations due to a lack of payment as of Thursday.

Akin’s camp placed an ad buy that was supposed to run in full through this week.

Standard procedure dictates that political ads must be paid in full before ads will run, but KOMU 8 received half of the payment for the Akin ads and ran half of the ad buy.

When KOMU 8 did not receive the rest of the money in time for the rest of the ad cycle, it pulled the ads.

The ads weren’t cancelled by the Akin camp.

KOMU 8 spoke with various television stations in St. Louis, Kansas City, and Columbia, and heard a similar story from each….

There are plenty of marks in the nation to eventually make up the difference, but you’ve got to find them first. It’ll be more difficult without the use of a grifter’s mailing list.
