Michigan attorney general candidate promises she won't show you her penis

With sexual misconduct allegations taking down politicians left and right, many are wondering how to keep harassers out of office. Michigan attorney general candidate Dana Nessel has a simple solution: Elect more women.

But Nessel's newest campaign ad makes that point in a much more direct way:

So when you're choosing Michigan's next attorney general, ask yourself this: Who can you trust most not to show you their penis in a professional setting? Is it the candidate who doesn't have a penis? I'd say so.

Nessel's sass continues through the rest of the ad. The Democrat asserts that an all-female ticket for Michigan's 2018 election is an asset, not a liability. And while she doesn't give too many specifics on what she would do as attorney general, Nessel does promise what she won't do: Sexually harass her staff, tolerate workplace harassment, or walk around in a half-open bathrobe.

Talk about high standards. Kathryn Krawczyk
