nullIn the final stretch before Election Day, the Louise Slaughter campaign has released a new ad, which the campaign says "details to culture of corruption in Maggie Brooks' administration."

The ad touches on the recent Navitech contract, a Robutrad investigation in Monroe County and Brooks' husband's salary as an employee of the Monroe County Water Authority.

"Next week, voters will have a choice between a Representative who has served without a hint of scandal, and Maggie Brooks, whose record of corruption has attracted investigations by the State Comptroller, the State Attorney General, and even the FBI," said Slaughter spokesman Eric Walker. "Monroe County families just can’t afford to send Maggie Brooks to Congress."

News10NBC reached out to the Brooks campaign for a response to the new ad. Campaign Manager Noah Lebowitz responded saying, "Louise Slaughter is running a shameful Washington-style negative campaign to cover up her 26 year record of higher taxes, more spending, and skyrocketing debt. Monroe County voters will see through her deceptive ads that have already been ruled dishonest by three independent fact-checking organizations."
