The ads, which also ran on Monday and will run tomorrow, were the result of a "modest six-figure" buy, said NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam. The NRA is considering taking out more ads in local markets to coincide with presidential travel, Arulanandam said.
The ad, a longer version of which is available here, alleges that Holder committed perjury in earlier congressional testimony by lying about when he first knew about Fast and Furious, which was run by the Justice Department's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. But in his testimony today, Holder held that he had not told Congress anything inaccurate, the Houston Chronicle reported.
Arulanandam said that even if Holder was telling the truth about when he learned about Operation Fast and Furious, he still needs to be fired.
"At best, you have the attorney general not knowing what's going on in his own department," Arulanandam said.
