About This Ad

Democrat Senate candidates need to ask themselves a question. Can they really support Hillary Clinton? She's a living history of scandal, lies and spin. Defended an accused child rapist then laughed about his lenient sentence. Whitewater. Travelgate. Chinagate. Filegate. She politically attacked sexual harassment victims. Pretended she landed under sniper fire. Benghazi. The Clinton Foundation. FBI investigation. Ruthless. Fake accents, fake concerns and fake laughs. Hillary Clinton. She is the living embodiment of everything people hate about politics. Democrat senate candidates, she is your burden to bear. I am a real person. NRSC is responsible for the content of this advertising.

This minute-long ad from the National Republican Senatorial Committee "offers a kitchen sink of claims against former secretary of state Hillary Clinton." The Washington Post's Fact Checker awards three Pinocchios each for two of them--that Clinton "defended an accused child rapist, then laughed about his lenient sentence," and "politically attacked sexual harassment victims." Clinton did defend an accused child rapist four decades ago, but at the request of the court," and "the timeline does not support the claim that Hillary Clinton attacked [Monica] Lewinsky, knowing that her husband had had a relationship with her. The revelation came months later."

About the Dataset

The Political TV Ad Archive, powered by the Internet Archive, is pulling together resources from a variety of sources to create an archive of political TV ads in key primary states. Each ad has its own canonical web page (sample here), and associated downloadable metadata. Some metadata are added by the Internet Archive; some generated via the media itself (such as count of ads, how many times an ad has aired, etc.); and some come from our partners.
