The Slaughter campaign released a commercial Tuesday attacking Brooks' political integrity. It is a 30-second commercial that accuses Brooks of creating a culture of corruption and fraud as Monroe County Executive. The commercial concludes by saying: "too many scandals, too high a price. We just can't trust Maggie Brooks."
The response came quickly. Brooks called the ad a new low for politics, focused on personal attacks rather than real issues. Brooks said she will released her own commercials soon, and they will be focused on what she sees as the real issues, the economy and the two candidates' records.
