Google yanks two political ads attacking Reps. Pelosi and DeLay

Michael Bazeley (Mercury News) writes in an article via Yahoo! News that:

A complaint this week by a conservative advocacy group over a political attack ad it tried to place on Google's Web site has again raised questions about the company's restrictive advertising policies and whether it can effectively police them., a conservative group based in Georgia, tried last week to place an ad on Google and its advertising network that was critical of California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat. The ad was a direct response to one already running on Google attacking Republican Congressman Tom DeLay, the House majority leader.

Google nonetheless rejected the anti-Pelosi ad, saying it does not permit ad text that "advocates against an individual.''
