A little early post for you poll workers and early risers (it’s 6am bloggin’ time.)
A quick post to tell you about a couple of late mailers we received.
Remember our post where we showed you District 6 candidate Walt Peffer’s mailer telling you that he is the “True Republican candidate for City Council” against Franklin Thompson? Had all his GOP “endorsements”?
Well get this. Peffer has another mailer out there, but this one is specifically addressed, “To Walt’s Democratic Friends”.
And this one cracks on “Republican Franklin Thompson”, like the GOP moniker is a dirty word.
The mailer goes on to knock various votes of Thompson, and we won’t bother to even give the rest.
That’s some cheek for a relatively serious candidate to play both sides of the party politics that openly. Though considering his campaign consultant is the former E.D. of the County Democrats, it’s not that surprising. But still…
And then we received a bright red mailer that Democrat Jim Farho is sending. This one cracks on Democrat Chris Jerram for his various legal clients.
Like the old saying goes, you can pick your clients and you can pick your nose, but if someone sees you, expect it to come up on someone’s campaign mailer.
We’d post that flyer, but frankly we haven’t verified the claims that Farho is making, and we don’t really want to get into Rex Moats territory here, if you know what we’re saying.
The funny thing about the piece is that Farho doesn’t go on to say, “Vote for Farho because he’ll do X,Y, and Z and make the world a better place, etc.” It just cracks on Jerram. Which would be fine if there were only one other candidate. But when there are five? Hmm…
As the day goes on we’ll continue to post. If you see anything good, take a camera phone shot and send it in to us.
If you hear anything, or have any good poll or candidate stories, send those in.
And give us your thoughts.
Oh, and vote.
