Racy robocall against Mike Thompson

A little-known Republican challenger made some waves this week by taping and sending out a robo-call intended to sound like a pornographic phone message.

From PolitickerCA:

A Republican looking to unseat U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson (D-St. Helena) has released a robocall that has to rank as one of the more unusual -- and sultry -- of the year.

The robocall features a woman's voice speaking in a seductive tone, saying "Mike Thompson's been a bad boy," and then castigating him for voting for the Wall Street bailout package earlier this month as well as the Patriot Act.

The woman than says, "Vote YES for Zane," referring to Zane Starkewolf, Thompson's Republican opponent in the 1st Congressional District. The "YES" is delivered in a decidedly orgasmic manner.
