Romney + Adultery Billboard: Funny? Inappropriate? Both?

Very social networking site uses Romney's image to knock his tax practices and encourage people to have affairs.

Romney + Adultery Billboard: Funny? Inappropriate? Both?

Mitt Romney is a cheater—at least on his taxes—according to online, extramarital personals website AshleyMadison.com.

The very social networking site posted that opinion on a billboard in South Boston this week, and the message lasted for less than a day.

The billboard featured an image of Gov. Romney putting his finger in front of his lips in the universal sign for "Shhh..." juxtaposed with the message: "if cheating on your taxes is ok, so is... AshleyMadison.com."

The ad ended with the company's tagline of "Life is short. Have an affair," and it ended its tenure along the roadside in less than 24 hours.

While Romney's tax practices have come under criticism for the use of Caribbean and Swiss bank accounts, there is no evidence the tactics aren't perfectly legal.

An AshleyMadison representative told Boston media that the billboard company pulled the ad because it had generated many complaints.

What about you? Would you complain about this ad? Is it funny? Offensive? Fair play? Tell us in the comments.
