While most of the country is focused on the 2016 presidential race, the Roberson family of Duck Dynasty is taking a break from that to endorse a very different candidate.
According to Mediaite, Willie Robertson has officially endorsed Republican Louisiana Sen. David Vitter’s gubernatorial campaign in a shocking new ad. In the commercial, Willie goes so far as to reference a 2007 incident in which Vitter was caught contacting a Washington D.C. prostitute.
“I know he’s made some mistakes, but who hasn’t?” Willie said of the incident.
The ad comes days after Vitter admitted in another commercial that he failed his family eight years ago. The theme of his ad with Willie is forgiveness and moving on from past mistakes.
What defines us in life is how we get up and earn redemption,” Vitter said in the new ad. “Where we are as a state is needing to get up based on strong conservative principles, and that’s what I’m leading with.”
Liberals have accused Willie of being a hypocrite because he’s a Christian man endorsing a candidate who was caught with a prostitute, but what they don’t understand is that forgiveness is a huge principle of Christianity. Vitter has apologized for what he did and done everything he could to make amends, so lets give the guy a break!
