The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee began running ads attacking Republicans for accepting pay raises while opposing an increase in the federal minimum wage. The ads are accurate, but exaggerated.
An ad by Republican Sen. Mike DeWine of Ohio distorts his opponent’s record by selectively choosing votes that don’t accurately reflect the overall picture.
Senate Minority Leader Dina Titus and Jim Gibson, mayor of Henderson, NV, are again trading barbs through television ads across the Silver State.
A campaign ad that extols Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman’s “principles” contains an invented bumper sticker and fictitious Web site address.
Both candidates for the Democratic slot on the gubernatorial ballot overplay their hands.
Democrat Bob Menendez inaccurately portrays Republican Tom Kean as “getting around” a law that doesn’t even apply to him.
A Democratic candidate for governor accuses a primary opponent of voting against a popular measure … before she was even elected to the legislature.
The Republican party attacks Sen. Byrd and he responds. Both use misleading material.
A misleading Bush ad criticizes Kerry for proposing to cut intelligence spending — a decade ago, by 4%, when some Republicans also proposed cuts.
With election day approaching the tempo of ads is increasing, but not the level of factual accuracy. Both sides are making false or misleading claims in their ads.
