Campaign Flash Ads from AdSense

I was surprised to see a 300×250 animated/video Flash ad for John McCain appear on our ’08 Conversations channel on this page that isn’t particularly flattering to McCain. I was even more surprised, however, when I noticed that there’s no typical “Ads by Google” tag. Without it, one might assume that The Conversations Network accepted advertising directly from the McCain campaign, which is not the case. Not sure I like this. I wonder if there’s a way to disable political ads on our AdSense account. I don’t mind running such ads when we’re not a party to their selection, but this could send the wrong message. Might also be a problem with our 501(c)(3) status.
