Controversy Monday surrounding the New Jersey state senate campaign of legendary Olympian Carl Lewis. It seems the wife of a state assemblyman sent Lewis a fairly mean and racist email, leading to the resignation of said assemblyman (story via Gawker). We're not concerned with the comings and goings of the resigning assemblyman or his idiot wife, but this does give us another occasion to raise the question: what the hell is this?
If you're running for the state senate against Carl Lewis, don't you play this on a loop at all campaign events? Isn't this a ready-made opposition ad? What am I missing?
