The Tan Nguyen Letter

I’ve received two phone calls this morning asking me if I had access to the fateful letter that has turned the 47th Congressional race on it’s head. So I decided to post it here for everyone to read.


As you can see, the letter is written in Spanish, if you’d like to read a translated version click here.

    This just made NPR’s national headlines…

    Scott Baugh has now repudiated Tan…

    Tan’s screwed.

    It is impossible that a single staffer was responsible for this letter without any sort of supervision.
    Someone had to write it (and possibly translate it), print 14,000 letters and envelopes, have them folded, stuffed, sealed, and addressed (using a voter file, I’d guess) and pay for postage.
    A printer/mail house can take care of much of this, but they need to be paid. 50 cents a piece would be a bargain for this service, with a color logo on the letter, so someone spent at least $7,000 on this project. Where did the money come from? One staffer with no guidance? Doesn’t make sense.

    What are the odds that Scott Baugh and Lynn Daucher are innocent? Come on. Get real. Correa voters were the targets. The Latinos are not happy with Loretta. They are happy with Lou.
