APNewsBreak: NY Conservatives plan TV ad to pressure building co-owner to block NYC mosque

ALBANY, N.Y. –  New York’s Conservative Party is planning a television ad campaign to pressure a New York City utility to use its power to block a proposed mosque near ground zero.

The ad states “patriotic Americans” want “real answers” about the Islamic group planning the cultural center in lower Manhattan in a building partly owned by Consolidated Edison that would include a mosque.

The ad asks viewers to contact the utility at a phone number provided on screen.

The Conservative Party’s statewide ad to begin running next week cites Republican candidate for governor Rick Lazio, the Conservative nominee, as asking the right questions about the effort headed by an “anti-American” Muslim leader.

The utility has said it is legally bound to accept the plans to sell the building under an agreement with its tenant.
