Tea Party wacko Jim DeMint is mad. Really mad. Why? Because the truth is being plastered on South Carolina televisions.

A brief update from the Alliance for Full Acceptance:

Channel 5 - WCSC reverses its decision and airs AFFA ads

Channel 2 - WCBD is the only station to cancel one of the three ads it had been broadcasting for five weeks--after Sen Jim DeMint's attorney told them it should be "pulled immediately."

Sen. DeMint's attorney demanded stations airing the ad forward "the documentation that you have in your possession which demonstrates Sen. DeMint's statements about Gays not teaching in the public schools." AFFA provided transcripts of DeMint's statements--as well as numerous headlines.

Here's the backstory.

9:38 AM PT: Here's the link with the headline:

11:08 AM PT: Help AFFA keep this and the other 2 ads running on TV. Donate today...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
