As the presidential race comes to its final stretch, more political action committees are airing negative ads. The latest one, by conservative super PAC Campaign for American Values, accuses President Barack Obama of “forcing gay marriage” on the rest of the country.
Gary Bauer, head of the organization, said money spent on the TV ad was “significant” but hasn’t given any details as to exactly how much they spent, according to Huffington Post.
HuffPo also write that the ad is factually wrong: “Obama has endorsed same sex marriage personally, but has stressed repeatedly that religious institutions should retain the right to recognize marriage as they see fit. The Democratic Party platform says the same,” writes Sam Stein.
