First off: This is me ranting, and NOT from the Mulroy campaign in any way.
If Joe Cooper wants to go negative and try to paint Steve Mulroy as unethical, maybe turnabout is fair play. Instead of trying to run a positive, issue-based campaign, maybe Steve should have been out there saying:
Joe Cooper served a term in prison for crimes committed when he served on the County Court (what the county commission was called back then) as a Republican.
In the 1970's Joe ran as the Conservative Republican alternative to a Republican Conservative Congressman.
He has repeatedly advocated selling off Shelby Farms, one of the treasures of our county.
I've heard from several sources about having signs put in their yard by the Cooper campaign without permission, stealing of Mulroy signs, surveys that are erroneously attributed to the Mulroy campaign, etc.
And the list of treasures could go on.
Of course Steve didn't do that. He talked about being a community activist, ensuring the integrity of our voting system, fighting the debt, creating jobs, protecting parks, etc. How dare he? The unethical bastard! (Oh and didn't Cooper say in the CA that he would move into a different city council seat to run for that seat? Can we spell hypocrite? Apparently the pro-Cooper person who has commented on my blog can't.)
