FLASHBACK: 2006 Mehlman-Approved Race-Baiting Ad Against Harold Ford

Not only did the ad imply that black Democrat Harold Ford cavorted with, gasp, white women (how uppity!), the ad charged that Ford took money from filthy pornographers. Mehlman refused to have the ad pulled even after loud complaints from the NAACP, saying it was an "independent expenditure." (But check the "paid for by the RNC" tailer on the clip.) Oh yeah, the "in bed with pornographers" charge backfired quickly on Mehlman when it was revealed that the RNC itself was taking donations from the maker of such classics as Fire In The Hole and Flesh And Boners.
