AZ Senate Candidate Pitches Free Money in 2007 Infomercial

A 2007 infomercial uploaded to YouTube on Sunday shows J.D. Hayworth, a Republican candidate for the US Senate, pitching a seminar that promised to explain, for a fee reportedly of up to $1,200, how to get "free money" from the federal government. Hayworth is challenging Sen. John McCain in the GOP's August primary race.

The clip was described on the Arizona Republic political blog, AZ/DC:

"Hayworth ... helped convince viewers that they could rake in big bucks by attending seminars that would teach them how to apply for federal grants that they wouldn't have to pay back. National Grants Conferences, the Florida-based company that hosted the classes and produced the informercial, has faced criticism from multiple state attorneys general and Better Business Bureaus."
