Why are policital ads not held to the same standards as other ads?

Just wondering why candidates and politicians can't be sued for false advertising. Most of the commericals or slander campaigns against each other have been proven false by private fact check institutions. So my question is, can we as the public sue them for false advertising.

    Another reason is that the standards, or at least those incorporated in regulation, are written by the politicians who run the ads. They exempt themselves from most of the burdens they place on others, actually.
