A television ad:

various: Jay Ashcroft doesn’t trust women to make decisions about their bodies. I’m worried Ashcroft would limit my access, my access to birth control. I’m worried Ashcroft wants to outlaw abortion, even in cases of rape or incest. I’m worried Ashcroft will be another Todd Akin. We need someone we can trust.

Jill Schupp: I’m Jill Schupp and unlike Jay Ashcroft I trust women to make these important decisions. I’ll always protect a woman’s right to choose and access to birth control because I trust Missouri women.

There are plenty more reasons to vote for Jill Schupp over the legacy in the 24th Senate District race. In the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Editorial: Care about Medicaid expansion? Vote for Jill Schupp

[….]

….We endorse Ms. Schupp to be the next state senator from the 24th District.

Her experience, her clear positions on Medicaid expansion and a variety of other issues, and the Senate’s desperate need for more ideological balance make Ms. Schupp the clear choice over political newcomer Jay Ashcroft, a Republican from unincorporated west St. Louis County.

Mr. Ashcroft is the son of former Missouri Gov. John Ashcroft, who went on to become a U.S. senator and U.S. attorney general before starting a Clayton law practice, where the younger Ashcroft also works. Mr. Ashcroft has never held political office, and his inexperience shows in his lack of clarity on key issues….

“…his inexperience shows in his lack of clarity on key issues…”

For right wingnut republicans that’s a feature, not a bug.

Hoover: Kent is a legacy, Otter. His brother was a ’59, Fred Dorfman.

Flounder: He said legacies usually get asked to pledge automatically.

Otter: Oh, well, usually. Unless the pledge in question turns out to be a real closet-case.

Otter, Boon: Like Fred.
