Appearing on CNN, Lindsey Graham’s opponent Jamie Harrison accused Graham’s campaign team of intentionally altering his skin tone to appear darker.
Don Lemon kicked off the segment by asking “I have to ask why during a nationwide reckoning on race would a political opponent darken an opponents skin tone during an ad?”
“It seems a little too on the nose to me.” Lemon continued. “The Graham campaign said an effect was used on the ad but pointed to past Facebook advertisements in which they said the same effect was used on Graham’s face and called the issue raised about it “a non story.”
“Jamie Harrison says Graham is playing a part in a 400 year history of an old south that had no room for people who looked like me.”
