Cut: TVad :08 (fades) This TV ad was run in Democrat Florez’s Bakersfield area district late on Election Day. Florez, who was not on the ballot that day, says the ad was produced and paid for by a non-profit group calling itself the “Consumer Alliance for a Strong Economy.” Florez wants to know more about the group. CUT: Florez13 :13 Sacramento political consultant Dave Gilliard helped produce the ad and says it was not part of a contested election campaign. He says the thousands of members of the Consumer Alliance have a first amendment right – backed by U S Supreme Court decisions – to express their views without revealing their identities. SOC
