Virginia Democrats In Hot Water Over Sexually Explicit Campaign Posters

Democrats in Virginia are receiving backlash after putting up posters with sexually-themed puns on Virginia college campuses. The posters were intended to raise awareness on gubernatorial candidate and Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's attempts to make oral and anal sex a felony in the state. 

The posters were stamped as being paid for by "Education Votes, a project of the Democratic Party of Virginia.”

The Democratic Party released the following statement, saying:

While we feel Virginians deserve to know the truth about Ken Cuccinelli’s extreme social agenda, we apologize to those who were offended. We’re working to remove these posters from the campuses in question, and they will not be used again.

The Republican Party pounced on the action by the Democrats, saying:

This is par for the course for the Democratic Party of Virginia this cycle. Not only does it repeat this thoroughly-debunked Terry McAuliffe falsehood, but it manages to do it in an even more crass and tasteless way than before. The Democratic Party of Virginia should be ashamed. But they’re probably not.

The posters were put up in support of Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe.

What do you think of the offending posters, Instincters? Were the Democrats right to apologize and take them down?

These are mild and actually kind of inventive seeing how it correlates seamlessly with a Cooch's political stance. But perhaps the Democratic party's intention was to gain national attention regardless of the poster take-down. So it works.
