Ad Spotlight: Bevan Duffy's New Campaign Ad Features His Daughter

Bevan Dufty, who is running for mayor of San Francisco, recently released a TV commercial featuring his daughter Sidney, who he conceived with a lesbian friend. Some are saying the ad is exploitative, but I discredit that criticism as a double-standard. Conservative politicians feature their families in political ads all the time - usually in the name of "family values." I think it's nice to see a positive representation of a nontraditional family in a campaign ad.
