The 30-second attack ad begins with a shot of the U.S. Senate candidate approving it.  The rest of the ad is a close-up showing a composed, mature woman making an unsupported, inaccurate, inflammatory, scripted, personal attack on the candidate's opponent.  The complete text: 


There was an angry pounding on the door, in the middle of the night.

I'm a single mom. I feared for my kids and for myself.

It was Richard Carmona and I was his boss.

Carmona is not who he seems.

He has issues with anger, with ethics and with women.

I have testified to this under oath to Congress.

Richard Carmona should never, ever be in the U.S. Senate.

The candidate is six-term Rep. Jeff Flake, R-AZ, 50, who put up the ad statewide in Arizona, in Spanish as well as English, on October 11, at a time when he appeared to be about three points behind in the polls.   Amplified by a national Republican website, this is the harshest attack so far in an increasingly vituperative campaign.  And despite its falsehoods (see below), media like USA Today continue to give it free, uncritical, and unrebutted replay.
