About This Ad


This ad claims Strickland "proposed cuts for services for children" and "wasted over $250,000 remodeling his bathrooms at the governor’s mansion." PolitiFact rates these claims as "Pants on Fire!" Strickland did propose budget cuts while facing a shortfall after 2008 economic downturn. The ad, however, "suggests that the money used to renovate the bathrooms" for visitors -- not the governor himself -- at the governor's mansion could have been used to fund those services, which was not the case.

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.
