Desperation in States Attorney's Race
THIS IS WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING.
The mailer then proceeds to quote the anonymous "Conservative Guy" from the Journal's story here. Conservative Guy posted twice on the story. His were two of 31 comments on the story, which was about Brenner's eleventh-hour decision to not appear at a debate with his opponent Mark Varago.
Of the comments on the story:
Positive for Mark Vargo: 23
Positive for Glenn Brenner: 8
The day has come when anonymous, baseless posts from a blog are being cited as fact in political messages. One wonders if it was Glenn's personal judgement to allow this mailer to go out. Alas, it did not come from his campaign, but rather from A Better South Dakota PAC. The PAC is owned by one Kati Jenkins, who works for...wait for it...Sen. Stan Adelstein.
I'm not going to repeat Conservative Guy's posts. You can read them at the Journal, or if you live in Pennington County, you'll likely get one in the mail.
The other side of the mailer contains a letter from Dawn Utzman which praises Glenn.
The fact that he couldn't find one or two more people to lend their real name to a mailer probably speaks to why he should be replaced.
