As Twitchy told you, progressive outfit Latino Victory sank to a sickening new low with an ad smearing Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie as a racist, child-hating xenophobe.

A lot of people condemned the twisted ad, as any decent person would.

Hillary’s former deputy national press secretary and senior spokesman Jesse Ferguson evidently isn’t a decent person. Oh, he spoke out about the ad, all right, but it wasn’t to condemn it; it was to defend it:

We can’t say we’re surprised to see such a garbage take from the likes of Ferguson. Still, it’s pretty pathetic that Ferguson couldn’t put aside partisanship for once and stand up for what’s right.

Sure is a mystery, isn’t it?
