Gray (something) who tried to change a statement 180 degrees.
    He should be charged with defemation of character and whatever else can be thrown at him.
    Actually, one of the problems is that there are no requirements at all that ads be truthful. In fact, since politicians are "public" individuals, there are also almost no protections against libel. Anybody that wants can say pretty much anything with no liability at all. The overwhelming majority of all attack ads, regardless of source, are completely misleading. Lies make make better stories, especially when you can never be called to account.

    BTW, Grayson's comment was not a misquote, it was satire.
