Hilton mom objects to McCain ad

August 04, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Paris Hilton's mother is annoyed that John McCain used her daughter to mock Democrat Barack Obama.

McCain, the likely Republican presidential nominee, unveiled a campaign ad last week likening Obama to celebrities Hilton and singer Britney Spears.

"It is a complete waste of the country's time and attention at the very moment when millions of people are losing their homes and their jobs," Kathy Hilton said on the liberal Huffington Post website.

She called the ad "a complete waste of the money John McCain's contributors have donated to his campaign."

Some of that money was hers. She and her husband donated a total of $4,600 to McCain's campaign this year.
