A new attack ad popped up this week in Nevada's Senate race, where the slung mud has already spattered both Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and GOP challenger Sharron Angle. This attack was different. It told Latino voters, "Don't vote."
But the consultant who made the ad insists that's not precisely what he meant. The ad comes from a small group in Virginia called Latinos for Reform. It accuses both parties of neglecting Latinos -- but it dwells on Democrats. It says Democratic leaders including Harry Reid are taking Hispanic voters for granted. It says not voting is the only way to get Democrats to take them seriously.
