Political Ads on Webpage OK?

I was on my tablet today, logged off, no ad block engaged for the tablet and I was able to see a political ad by one of the 2 big parties, on the main page, above the threads in the 2 block spot. Since we have a ban on politics in our discussions per the forum rules, I was wondering if this type of ad is appropriate for the forum. My concern is someone who hasn't read the rules will start a thread about the taboo subject!

Also, there were a lot of rolling ads for puppy sites, which IMO are puppy millers.

The puppy sites you can capture the URL and a picture of it and PM that to Yung.

That's funny because I strenuously avoid all political ads, so no clue how this party got on my targeted interests.

Insofar as the puppy mills-- guess we can thank the member here who had a website with all the stolen photos and Google ads--I went on to try to identify some photos of members here and the rescue.
