Sharron Angle TV Ad: "Best Friend"

This ad has been proven to be misleading, using photos of workers that were actually taken in Mexico and misrepresenting Reid's votes on the fence and other immigration issues. It was pulled because images were not properly licenced and permissions were not given to the Angle campaign or any other organisation to use the "endorsement" photos and video.

Gerrymandering through corporate "investments."

Buying ten years or more of political control? It's easy. Simply allow corporate money to go into elections at all levels without controls or disclosure, add corporate self interest, and then elect the legislatures at the state level that will gerrymander toward the party you have bought and paid for, the Republicans.

The 2010 census will lead to the redistricting, or drawing of lines, for everything from state assembly seats to US Congressional seats. The party in charge of each state's legislature will have the upper hand in determining which party will control each state, by deciding if districts are even (the founding father's intent?), or drawn to give the advantage to a single party, in this case the Republicans. These gerrymandered lines remain in place for at least a decade until the next census and in many cases for decades and up to a century.


The game is not only over state legislatures, but over the very key issue of who will have the advantage in winning Congressional seats for well over the next decade.

As an example when the lines were drawn ten years ago for the assembly district represented by Boulder City the area switched, under a Republican legislature, from evenly divided to heavily Republican.
