So Ashley Skellie, who lost to Sen. Debbie Dawkins (D-Pass Christian) 4 years ago, wants that seat so badly that she's willing to maliciously lie about Sen. Dawkins' residency. Skellie bought (or had bought for her) $50,000 worth of television advertising last week. And she bought it to run an ad saying that Sen. Dawkins lived in Florida.
Well, the media got ahold of the truth, and Skellie was forced to pull the ad. Here's the Sun-Herald's article on it. There were stories on it from the Miami Herald to the DeSoto Times, but we'll just go with the local one.
