Joe Miller has a new advisor to help him with his war on spelling in the Alaska Senate write-in count -- and it's Floyd Brown, the infamous conservative strategist behind the "Willie Horton" TV ad in the 1988 presidential campaign, the co-founder of Citizens United and the birther-friendly blogger.
Miller beat Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the Republican primary, but now appears to trail her write-in campaign in the general election. Write-in ballots are currently being examined to see how many are for Murkowski.
Brown has referred to himself as a "volunteer strategist" for the Miller campaign, but since joining Miller in Juneau on Tuesday, he's already claimed that the campaign has received "serious allegations of fraud, voter intimidation and voter bullying" since election day.
So who is he?
Brown is most well-known for masterminding the infamous "Willie Horton" ad that put a crimp in Michael Dukakis' 1988 presidential run against George H.W. Bush.
