Attack ads have hit a new low, I'm afraid. And it stinks. From the Fresno Bee's Capitol Alert:

    Republican candidate Van Tran has sent voters a scratch-and-sniff mail piece taking aim at Democratic Rep. Loretta Sanchez. "Something smells rotten about Loretta – it's the stench of Washington," the mailer reads. Wrote one Capitol Alert reader who received the mailer: "It is a horrible odor – like a combination of five or six of the worst possible scents you can imagine."
