OKLAHOMA CITY - State Sen. Stephanie Bice, a Republican candidate for Congress, said Monday she was offended by an attack ad from a national group linking her to former movie producer and convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein.
“This isn’t a policy commercial,” Bice, of Oklahoma City, said in an interview. “This is actually in my opinion trying to tie me to a convicted sex offender, putting my picture up on television with Harvey Weinstein. This has nothing to do with policy at all.”
Bice said the ad was an insult to her and every woman in Oklahoma. A spokesman for the group said it intends to increase the frequency of the ad and produce a second one.
Weinstein ran a film production company in Hollywood before being charged with several counts of sexual assault and rape in New York. He was convicted of third-degree rape and sexual assault in February and sentenced to 23 years in prison.
