CBS 13 reported:

“A local congressional contest took a racy turn when an ‘enthusiastic’ staffer recorded a robo-call that attracted an unusual amount of attention.”

“The robo-call went out on behalf of Republican challenger Zane Starkewolf starting Sunday, but was pulled by Monday. A female voice begins the message by saying ‘Mike Thompson has been a bad boy,’ in risque tones.”

“Mike Thompson, Starkewolf’s opponent, is the incumbent Democrat Congressmen representing the District 1 seat, which comprises the Sonoma, Napa and Yolo County regions.”

“‘It wasn’t really the message I wanted to state and the risque-type voice was not exactly the tone I wanted to set,’ Starkewolf said, but added, ‘you know, I make no apologies for it.’”
