Ad links Democratic congressman to Rob Ford

December 2, 2013

Well, this is new.

A Republican congressional candidate running in Long Island is up with a new ad picturing Rep. Tim Bishop (D-N.Y.) next to none other than Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who recently acknowledged smoking crack.

The ad, from repeat candidate George Demos, pictures Bishop next to both Ford and President Obama and asks whether viewers are "tired of politicians" before proceeding to talk about Demos.

It makes no further linkage between Bishop and Ford -- likely because there is none.

Demos lost a 2010 primary for the seat and ran again in 2012, eventually dropping out.
