Ad of the day: Melancon airs Vitter's dirty laundry
Rep. Charlie Melancon (D-La.) has finally done it on air. He's taken on Sen. David Vitter's (R-La.) involvement in the "D.C. madam" scandal with a two-minute long ad that includes not only replays from past TV news reports, but audio from an interview with "a former French-quarter prostitute" who says she was involved with Vitter. She doesn't hold back on the details, so consider yourself warned.
The ad is part of a stepped-up effort by Melancon to cut into Vitter's sizable lead in the Louisiana Senate race. A cut-down version of a longer viral Web video, "Forgotten Crimes," is still longer than the standard 30-second or minute-long ads and will be airing on cable statewide.
