A coalition of Asian American groups in Missouri is condemning an ad attacking Missouri Attorney General candidate Kurt Schaefer which they say “depicts Chinese and Asians as the enemy” and is reminiscent of “darker and shameful times in our nation’s history.”

The ad controversy comes less than two weeks after another ad in the same race accused Schaefer’s opponent, Democrat Josh Hawley, of supporting terrorism for defending a Muslim client. That ad was condemned for its use of “anti-Muslim rhetoric.”
