Candidates from both parties, as well as the parties themselves, have been releasing ads meant to convince voters that the other guy won’t be tough on child predators and sex offenders.
The Competitive Enterprise Institute runs ads saying “The Antarctic ice sheet is getting thicker.” A professor objects, saying CEI deliberately misrepresents his research.
An NRCC ad says Democrat Francine Busby “praised a teacher reported to have child porn,” but fails to mention she voted to fire him.
Oberweis uses made-up headlines against a rival in the GOP primary.
The Republican party attacks Sen. Byrd and he responds. Both use misleading material.
