Whitman and Brown on Meaning of 'Whore': Animated Version

In their third and final gubernatorial debate last night, Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown tussled over a recently released recording of someone within Brown's campaign calling Whitman a "whore." Brown reiterated his apology while also reminding Whitman that Pete Wilson, her campaign chairman, once called members of California's legislature "whores" to public unions. The debate took place in San Rafael and was moderated by Tom Brokaw.

Our reconstruction of the exchange picks up with Tom Brokaw questioning Jerry Brown.
