Did EQCA Finally Create a Decent Attack Ad For Meg Whitman?

Meg Whitman, who comes in on Forbes‘ new Richest list at No. 332 with $1.2 billion, has spent $119 million of her own money to end up in a near-dead heat against Attorney General Jerry Brown, who’s spent just $1 million in his bid to become governor of California (again), some six weeks before the election. So here comes Equality California with what’s perhaps one of the best “attack” ads I’ve seen so far, particularly from a gay rights group — which all too often put pieces of ineffective crap on air.

The spot is not outrageous; it’s ominous. It’s just enough to invoke fear even in the minds of fiscal conservatives, that their tax dollars won’t just be wasted, but will be wasted on Westboro’s agenda — which admittedly is a bit of a stretch, since Whitman clearly doesn’t associate with the Fred Phelps crowd. But unarguably, both parties’ support of laws like Prop 8 is the same.

EQCA has also launched a similar ad against Los Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley, who wants to succeed Brown as attorney general and uphold Prop 8.

      Well Americans vote with their wallets.

      Fighting gay rights is just too expensive.
