A left-wing dark money group that previously accused Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) of literally killing senior citizens is now blaming an Ebola outbreak in West Africa on congressional Republicans.

The 501(c)(4) Agenda Project Action Fund is buying airtime for an ad campaign titled Republican Cuts Kill blaming the outbreak of the deadly disease on Republican members of Congress, McClatchy reports.

The ads … mixes [sic] images of body bags, hazmat suits, and corpses with clips of Republicans in some of the most competitive races around the country demanding more spending cuts and testimony from top healthcare officials detailing how cuts hampered their ability to address the crisis. […]

The ad was produced by the Agenda Project Action Fund, the same people who created Rep. Paul Ryan throwing "Granny Off the Cliff" and "Romney Girl." The group plans ad buys in Kentucky, North Carolina, South Dakota and Kansas in the coming weeks.

The ads target McConnell and Sen. Pat Roberts as well as House members running for Senate — Reps. Cory Gardner of Coloroda, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Rep. Rob Maness of Louisiana, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Steve Daines of Montana and House members in potentially competitive re-election races: David Valadao, Mike Coffman, Michael Grimm, Steve Southerland*, Tom Latham, Lee Terry, Dan Benishek*, Jon Runyan, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, and Kay Granger.
