Oh, it’s not just those GOP attack ads accusing various Democrats of being phone-sex fans and pedophiles that I blogged about the other day. The sharp-eyed folks at Whiskey Bar have a list of several more extraordinarily stretched sexual slurs being lobbed from the Republican side in various races around the country, including
a commercial in Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District that links the Democrat to a child rapist, another in the same state accusing the Dem of “voting to fund studies of Vietnamese prostitutes and the mastubatory practices of old men,” and a Tennesse Senate race where the Republican National Committee is sponsoring an ad in which a blond white “woman cooing into the camera that she met [African American Democrat Harold Ford Jr.] at a party sponsored by Playboy magazine.”

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
