Webb fact-checks Allen attack ad and finds more bullshit

I just saw the most ridiculous ad Allen has yet run, featuring an obnoxious "Janice Buxbaum", who smugly claims to be a Democrat. She attacks Webb with accusations that Judge Judy would humiliatingly dissect in a minute or less. Not surprisingly, Webb's site shows that the ad is full of lies. From the site:

http://www.webbforsenate.org/blog/node/193

"Janice Buxbaum is no more of a Democrat than Zell Miller and this certainly is not her party, said Denny Todd.

...

George Allen Claims
Buxbaum says, "When I was a midshipmen at the Naval Academy I was one of the unfortunate few that got ordered to go and interview with James Webb."

Truth
This claim is false. No one was ordered to speak with Jim Webb.

George Allen Claims
Im George Allen and I approve this message.

Truth
George Allen is lying about wanting to focus on the issues. On Monday night, in a 2-minute paid advertisement, George Allen promised to run his campaign on the issues. This broadcast came just four minutes after Allen ran an attack ad on the same channel.

1. .
I guess that Webb doesn't have the money though to counter these attacks with his own TV ads.
I hope that the Dems decide to invest some more money.
