Independent Democratic Voters Guide?
I was chatting with Claudio Gallegos this evening at Drinking Liberally, and he showed me this mailer:
When I opened up this “Independent Democratic Voters Guide,” I saw a bunch of silly exaggerations about Carlos Bustamante, and a few lies about Tom Umberg. So I flipped to the back of the mailer to see who paid for this voters guide that is supposedly “independent” and “democratic”
Carlos Bustamante is the Independent Democrat
. Tell that to his Republican endorsements. Claudio already posted regarding this mailer at The Orange Juice
On the back are quotes from Bustamante supporters, including failed politician Mark Leyes. One would think it might be an IE. In fact it was paid for by the Bustamante campaign, clearly trying to mislead Democratic voters into thinking he is a Democrat. Whats the matter Carlos, you realize you cannot win under the Republican label in Santa Ana? Are you ashamed to admit you are a Republican? Don’t worry, after the thumping they got last November, I am sure there are plenty of people embarassed to say they are Republicans.
