U.S. Customs and Border Protection $1 million ad campaign to warn against immigrant smugglers

There's been a recent surge of unaccompanied children crossing the border into the United States without visas with the intention of immigrating. 226 immigrants have died crossing the border since October and as recently as last week a body of an eleven year old boy was found in rural south Texas near the border. More than 52,000 unaccompanied children have been detained during the same period after entering the U.S. illegally, mostly in South Texas.

Ashley Madison uses Hilary Clinton for their "discreet dating" billboard

Ashley Madison is a dating service, aiming to "spice up" peoples married life with discreet affairs. Using Hillary Clinton, whose husband famously had affairs (and was accused of raping nearly half a dozen women) as their poster child may be tasteless, but it's getting attention. "Harder Choices...

The sketch of Hillary is meant to attract women, who may not come around so easily to the idea of having an affair (via a dating site) than men would.
