Morgan Freeman Denies Narrating Ad For GOP Candidate

11/02/2010 10:12 am 0 comments

Actor Morgan Freeman is denying that he provided the narration for a Republican candidate’s political ad, saying that the campaign lied by claiming that he did.

“These people are lying,” said Freeman in a statement sent to The Huffington Post. “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.”

Lawson is running against Democratic incumbent Rep. David Price in North Carolina’s fourth congressional district. The ad in question is titled, “What is David Price Afraid Of?”
