Sexual harassment allegations are getting formerly illustrious men fired left and right this week, and a candidate for attorney general in Michigan is hoping to harness that buzz.
"Who can you trust most not to show you their penis in a professional setting?" asks civil rights lawyer Dana Nessel in a brutally honest campaign ad. "Is it the candidate who doesn’t have a penis? I’d say so."
Watch the ad below. Warning: It repeatedly refers to aspects of male genitalia.
I've watched this ad for a Democratic candidate for Michigan Attorney General a dozen times.
She confronts fears of an all-female ticket by calling her sex an asset rather than a liability. Notably absent from Nessel's photo montage was Matt Lauer, but her ad likely needed at least a couple days of post-production.
There are still several months until Michigan's Democratic primary on Aug. 7, 2018, but Nessel's bold ad certainly turned heads.
I had never heard of @DanaNessel until about ten minutes ago, and after watching this ad several times, I now want to know everything about her. Goodness gracious, THIS is how a Democrat should talk. She's got my support. pic.twitter.com/gqOeG97pzc
