Colorado Republicans Send "Sex-Offender Notification" to Voters
November 1, 2006
One week to go to election day and it's getting ugly out there:
In [Colorado's] Congressional District 7, former state senator Ed Perlmutter is strongly criticizing Republicans over a piece of direct mail that was designed to look like a sex-offender notification. The brochure accuses Perlmutter of being soft on crime. The mailing was paid for by the state Republican Party, not by Perlmutter's opponent, Rick O'Donnell. O'Donnell said he had no control over the brochure. Perlmutter said the mailing is a new low for negative political ads and he called it ugly, desperate and the worst kind of politics at a news conference on Tuesday.
