This ad just came out. Valerie Plame is running for Congress. Her name will be familiar to everyone. She’s running for the seat held by Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), who is running for a Senate seat. "“I’m running for Congress because we’re going backwards on national security, health care and women’s rights. We need to turn our country around,” she says in the video.
Plame’s identity was illegally leaked by the George W. Bush administration. She called it an act of “revenge” against her husband. The official who blew her cover, former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, was never charged. President Trump pardoned I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, the former George W. Bush administration official convicted in the investigation into the leak.
Here’s the ad.
