Last week, California Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman released an ad that called Republican opponent Steve Poizner that dreaded “L” word — liberal. Poizner’s latest web video tries to tie Whitman to another word: porn.

State Insurance Commissioner Poizner’s new web video — “Adults only” — opens with eBay’s history of selling guns, fake paintings and pornography. And then it takes on Whitman, who used to run the online auction site.

“Whitman cleaned up the site,” the video’s narrator says. “No more guns. No more fake paintings. But pornography? Whitman started a separate division that only sells porn.”

Under Whitman’s leadership the porn site became one of the largest on the internet. That’s Meg Whitman. From Goldman Sachs deals to porn. It’s all about the money. Meg Whitman. Bad judgment. Wrong values.

The TPM Poll Average shows Whitman leading Poizner 44.0% to 26.0% in the June 8 primary.
