1. I am glad to see the push-back against total lies in attack ads

Painting someone negative with imagery, distorting their position, and cherry picking their worst quotes out of context are bad enough, but when a statement is about a matter of fact, and it's patently false, there should be legal consequences.

I don't think Newt should have to use his treasure chest to prosecute this. It should be the FEC.
