Here's a video that's gone viral.
Janice Hahn, a Democratic member of the Los Angeles City Council (15th district), is running for a U.S. House of Representatives seat (36th Congressional District) in a special election scheduled for July 12, 2011. Hahn hopes to replace the pro-war Jane Harman, who retired shortly after winning reelection in 2010.
This video satirizes Hahn's past support of "gang intervention programs," which has supposedly made it too easy for gang members to avoid prison -- and keep plying their trade on the streets.
Hahn's opponent, Republican Craig Huey, denies any involvement in the production of this video, and has condemned it.

The clueless, pro-censorship Hahn has even circulated a petition, calling on the FCC to remove the video from YouTube.
