‘My Opponent Likes Bondage’ – California’s Nastiest Campaign Ads For 2010

In one of the nastiest campaign ads of 2010, one candidate warns that his opponent “wasted tax dollars organizing a bondage and leather festival!”

Other ads catch a politician promising that yes, he will double-dip into taxpayer money to fund his salary. And one candidate even broadcast footage of his opponent rubbing suntan lotion on his back during a lobbyist-funded trip to sunny Hawaii!
