Acting DPP Spokesman Chao Tian-ling said at a press conference that the KMT’s Chiayi County branch has been running a “questionable, negative advertisement” insinuating that the DPP nominee in the county commissioner’s race, Chang Hwa-kuan, was involved in adulterous relations with the current commissioner, Chen Ming-wen.
