The Kilroy campaign needs to hire a new opposition researcher.
This week, their campaign pushed a story to the media that left everyone that has eyes saying, "um, no s***."
The story? That this mailer includes a doctored photo promoting Steve Stivers!
Boy, what gave it away? You mean there WASN'T a 40-foot tall billboard duct-taped to the Statehouse during the Columbus Tea Party event? I don't believe it! [/sarcasm font off]
The fact is this was simply a desperate attempt by the Kilroy campaign to deflect from the bashing her signature issue is taking in the media.
And it was the Kilroy campaign that pushed this story. Here's an e-mail from her campaign manager that went out an hour or so before the story first hit the Dispatch:
But what's amazing to me is that the Kilroy campaign takes issue with mailers that use photoshop to prove a point. Why?
Well, maybe this mailer Kilroy used against Stivers in her 2008 race will give you a hint.
It's one thing to say "Vote for Me" in your own lit. It's completely another to create an ornate forgery attacking a very guilty looking Stivers taking a lie-detector test.
Mary Jo, you're a hypocrite.
And at the end of the day, someone like Kilroy needs to use these silly attacks in the media. Why? Because she's got nothing else on Stivers. Meanwhile, Stivers has nearly two years worth of a Kilroy voting record in Congress - a voting record that matches up with Nancy Pelosi 98.5% of the time.
And it's because of your actions damaging the people of the 15th District that's going to make you lose.
