TV Political Ads.

I live in Luzerne County, PA. The county went red in 2016 after many years of Democratic rule.

We have a likable Dem rep, Matt Cartwright. He was one of the last 10 Dems in the House to commit to impeachment. I understood why he waited because Speaker Pelosi had enough votes to start the inquiry, and my county has the dubious honor of throwing PA to tRump on that awful night.

For the past month or two, some pac began running political ads against him for "supporting impeachment". It's a compilation of false or misleading quotes (there's a clip from AOC) about "do-nothing Dems" who supposedly decided on impeachment on day 1 of tRump's term.

I thought the barrage would end after the election a few weeks ago. It's gotten worse. And it's the only political ad running now, with the exception of Bloomberg's.

Is these happening in other counties/states? It's disgusting to see night after night. And it's unanswered from Cartwright or the DNC.
I mute it, but it really bothers me.

3. I only see Bloomberg ads all over the place

but now that Hunter will be history (I hope) the GOP will start ads for his replacement soon enough. They have been silent so far but I expect the big $$$ GOP ads to be up and running as soon as it happens.

4. Our television plays DVDs and Netflix. That's all it does.

The only political ads I'm exposed to are in my local newspaper.

The political ads I find in my mailbox go directly into the recycling bin.

We do not invite screeching shit flinging monkeys into our home.
