ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A candidate for New Mexico state auditor is attacking his opponent’s ad that uses “Breaking Bad” references.

Republican lawyer Robert Aragon told The Associated Press late Wednesday that Democrat Timothy Keller’s ad with the Albuquerque car wash from the hit AMC-TV series makes misleading statements about his record.

Speaking in front of the car wash, the Harvard University-educated Keller promises to fight fraud and waste.

An image of Aragon is then shown in front of a show’s trademark yellow cloud of methamphetamine with allegations that Aragon failed to pay his taxes and four former clients sued him.

Aragon said in an email that those lawsuits were dismissed.

Aragon says he paid a federal tax lien against him in 2001 four days after it was filed.

“Breaking Bad,” a popular TV series that ended last year, was filmed in Albuquerque.
