Voters often say they’re sick and tired of seeing negative ads, but politicians apparently aren’t getting the message. Attack ads are getting more and more extreme in their messages, Politico reports.

So what are the accusations candidates are making against each other? Accusations of opponents wanting to gas house pets, inject young girls with dangerous drugs, let men beat their wives and assist child molesters, whether by buying them Viagra or protecting their privacy. “The soft-on-rape ads that have aired this cycle seem almost tame by comparison,” the Politico story says.

Perhaps the most extreme ad comes from Democratic Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, who is taking on Republican Bill Brady.

A woman holding a little fluffy dog then appears. “Shame on Bill Brady,” she says. “I am a Republican, but I don’t support him for the mass euthanization of animals.” Then she turns to kiss the dog.
