Ad Watch: Obama ad featuring Lilly Ledbetter

Item by Chris Graham

The Barack Obama campaign released today a TV ad featuring Lilly Ledbetter, the Alabama woman whose fight for equal pay for equal work for women is featured in today’s Augusta Free Press.

The ad is called “Need Education,” playing on comments made by John McCain made to explain his opposition to federal legislation bearing Ledbetter’s name that would give women better legal recourse to fight pay discrimination.
