DescriptionREGINA -- Saskatchewan NDP television ads attacking the Opposition may be porn for political junkies in more ways than one.

The Saskatchewan Party is outraged that as the words Privatization of the Crowns dissolve in one part of the ad, the letters P, O, R, and N stay up a second longer than the rest.

A letter T also remains above the N, but Saskatchewan Party member Nancy Heppner says the word porn is clearly spelled out.

Taken with the phrase "Sask Party Stood For'' above the letters, the implication is that the Opposition stands for porn, Heppner said.

"If it's intentional, it's despicable,'' Heppner said. "They are accusing us of being in favour of pornography and I just think that's below any kind of standards for an election campaign.''
