With only a little over a month and a half before the June 5 primary, San Diego voters will begin to see more political ads when watching television.

That was clear this month, when Nathan Fletcher purchased more than $110,000 in television spots. Until then, Fletcher was the only one of four mayoral candidates to run campaign ads on local stations. The barrage of television ads, and of course his decision to leave the GOP, seemed to pay off, vaulting him to the front of the pack.

And with a firm hold on last place, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted by 10News, district attorney Bonnie Dumanis hopes to see some of the same results. In the coming weeks, Dumanis will run more than 150 television ads on two of San Diego's major stations.

After reviewing the public files at San Diego's five largest stations, we found that Dumanis plans to spend $82,901 on television ads to run from April 30 until the day of the primary.

As of April 13, Dumanis will shell out $38,126 to run 105 spots on CBS/8 starting on May 7 and ending June 5. During that same time, the district attorney will run 48 spots on KGTV, from April 30 to June 5, for $44,775.

Bonnie has to do this because she is firmly entrenched in 4th place in the mayoral race and her fortunes are sinking faster then the Titanic when it hit that iceberg 100 years ago this past week. Plus Bonnie needs to account for all the "campaign donations" she is blackmailing and cajoling out of all the big shots, fat cats, and stuffed wallets she trolls for on a regular basis. What better way than to splash her unattractive mug on our TV sets at dinner time and really make us blanch at the prospects of the Dirty D.A. infesting her "culture of corruption" into City Hall!

I doubt that TV ads will backfire on her. One reason Fletcher's standing in the polls jumped was that he actually ran ads. Hers will improve, but not enough to make her into a real contender. What SHOULD happen in this race may not happen.

I think Bonnie should run a TV ad on how she might be able to paper Judge Hayes at the federal courthouse........ oh wait.........Bonnie can paper a state judge but she can't paper a federal judge, the federal rules don't allow it. Oh Bonnie Dumbass, what the hell have you gotten yourself into??? Or I should say what have you gotten the taxpayers on the hook for.

Oh well, looks like Bonnie is going to have to live with that statement by Judge Hayes that "fabrication of evidence" in a 1st degree murder trial by the DA is a violation of constitutional rights- and hope that when the $10 million plus liability judgment comes out against Dumbass no one will notice. She will pass to the taxpayers the multi million dollar judgment coming down the pipe, for her fabrication of evidence.
