Morgan Freeman in Campaign-Ad Spat

North Carolina Republican congressional candidate B.J. Lawson has apologized for falsely claming that Morgan Freeman did the voiceover in one of his ads. "We're apologizing to Congressman Price, to the voters, and most of all to Morgan Freeman because this is not the campaign we wanted to run, and not the campaign we have run," Lawson’s spokesman told CNN. His campaign originally said on Facebook and its website that the voice was Freeman’s. "These people are lying,” Freeman then said in a statement. “I have never recorded any campaign ads for B.J. Lawson and I do not support his candidacy. And, no one who represents me ever has ever authorized the use of my name, voice or any other likeness in support of Mr. Lawson or his candidacy.” The campaign blamed the group that made the ad, MEI Political.
