Sue Kelly, stop the robocalling
We're on to you Sue. And according to Talking Points Memo, even your own people are embarrassed by it.
I was handing out leaflets for John Hall yesterday at a grocery store. There were two tables, a democratic one and a Republican one.Nice. Real classy.
When I was handing out palm cards, several people said to me something like, "I WAS going to vote for John Hall, until I got all those phone calls. I got seven or eight, right at dinner time."
The guy from the Republican table, who was a local district leader-- friendly and chatty, actually came over to me and said, "You know, most of those are coming from Sue's office, but don't tell anybody."
Enjoy these next few days, they'll be your last as our Representative.
This is getting to be an old story--look at the way the Republicans smeared Harold Ford, the Democratic Senate candidate in Tennessee, with racially charged TV advertising. His oppponent also said he had no control over the outside group that paid for that racist ad, yet he was the one to benefit in the polls.
Sorry, this mealy-mouthed excuse doesn't wash in the 19th. The person solely responsible in my book for the harassment of the people she is supposed to represent is Sue Kelly.
