    That mistake is a talking point of Reps against all Dems. It not being true wont stop them though

    I have been campaigning for our last remaining controlled growth Commissioner for a couple weeks. Standing on street corners waving signs, putting signs out. I got a slanderous piece of mail today slamming "my" Commissioner produced by an unnamed faceless PAC. Laws limit how much you can give...spend on a candidate, apparently there are no such limits if you are "against" someone... the opposing candidate is never mentioned.
