The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has called upon the GOP to condemn a political ad that was released earlier this week be by a group called Turn Right USA. Some are questioning why the DCCC would even bring attention to the ad since it went pretty much unnoticed, but I'm glad they are challenging it. Pretty much unnoticed is not the same as not noticed at all. The fact that it could influence anyone is offensive enough for me, and trust me, offensive is putting it mildly.

The web ad is targetting Janice Hahn -- the Democratic candidate in a special election to take over Rep. Jane Harman's L.A.-based House seat.

Here is the DCCC statement on the matter:


“Craig Huey must condemn this offensive and sexist ad, and demand that the ad makers immediately take it down. This ad does not reflect the values of California’s hardworking women and men. Craig Huey’s silence should send a chilling message to our mothers, sisters, and daughters that this kind of outrageous and sexist material is tolerated.”








DO YOU THINK THE DCCC SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT ATTENTION TO THE AD?
