Here’s a shocker: a television ad in the governor’s race is misleading.
At issue is Dino Rossi’s new ad that questions whether Gov. Chris Gregoire is dishonest or is in denial over the state’s finances. The Olympian and The Seattle Times both report today that the ad falsely implies that the state has a deficit. In fact, the state has a surplus today, but the state is projected to run into a huge revenue shortfall next year if spending continues on the same track.
