Did you find filmmaker Ladd Ehlinger Jr.'s campaign ad depicting Nancy Pelosi as the Wicked Witch insufficiently racist and sexist? You're in luck, because he's outdone himself with "Give Us Your Cash, Bitch!" This new spot attacking Janice Hahn, a Democrat running for Congress in California, has already been denounced by the California Republican Party, and Democrats are demanding Hahn's opponent Craig Huey condemn the ad as well.
I don't even want to comment on this ad - it's just too stupid and offensive. But the entire premise makes me mad, Gang Intervention Specialists are not people you should run ads against. They're trying to prevent gang proliferation & violence, it's completely shitty to use a program like this to run against someone. When I did Americorps, we had Gang Intervention Specialists come in to educate us about gangs in the area where we would be working. Those men were seriously awesome. They had done their time, turned their lives around and were now helping their community. Campaigning against that, no matter how you do it, is just wrong.
