    Maybe I don’t know how to work the internet but I couldn’t find a link to anywhere to elaborate on the story. What exactly did he lie about? Did he say bob Gibbs is turning tricks on street corners? Did he say he smuggled illegal aliens Into the 18th district? Embezzled money? It might generate a thicker discussion if the story weren’t so generic. Or I just can’t find the link…

    A false statement in a political ad? No way! Next, you’ll try to tell me there’s dirt in the ground.
