Washington, DC – Today, House Majority PAC launched a new TV ad in CA-48 slamming Republican Scott Baugh for his troubling record as a law-breaking career politician. The ad shines a light on Baugh’s run-ins with the law, which include an investigation into credit card fraud, an indictment for scheming to rig an election, and other elections law violations that were part of 22 Grand Jury charges.
The TV spot titled “Sweet Tooth” begins airing today in the Los Angeles media market with a buy of approximately $650,000 behind it on broadcast and cable that runs through the day of California’s jungle primary election on June 5.
“With so much at stake, Southern Californians need to know the facts about Republican Scott Baugh,” said Charlie Kelly, Executive Director of House Majority PAC. “Baugh is a self-serving career politician whose repeated willingness to play fast and loose with the law proves he just can’t be trusted. We’re working to ensure voters know about Baugh’s real record before going to the polls on June 5 and voting in such a critical election.”
Scott Baugh was by a Grand Jury on four felony charges and 18 misdemeanors related to a plot to rig his State Assembly election. Baugh was for credit card fraud and admitted to $8,800 in illegal cash, and was fined nearly $50,0000.
