Republicans debuted a new ad Thursday in which a frustrated former Obama supporter expresses her disappointment with the president. The only problem: The woman in the video is actually an RNC staffer.
The new ad features Republican National Committee Director of Hispanic Outreach Bettina Inclan, who in the ad purports to be an average woman voter who supported Obama in 2008. She describes her disillusionment with the president in the ad as a romantic relationship gone awry.
The RNC says its ad, which first appeared on television Thursday is not dishonest.
Inclan began her current RNC post in January 2012, and has worked in Republican politics since well before Obama’s 2008 election. She did Hispanic outreach for Rick Scott’s 2010 Florida gubernatorial race worked on Capitol Hill for Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI) and as national executive director of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly.

Doesn't this type of stuff happen often?
From both sides?

Well which is it - she was a Republican staffer all the way back to 2003, or an Obama supporter in 2008? Which version you believe depends on just how much of a mental contortionist you are willing to become to believe the ad as it is presented. Or you can look at reality - which is she is simply lying in a clumsily-executed campaign ad.
