I just received my first glossy campaign mailer of the primary season. This one is from the Republicans and it answers the question thus: Leading conservatives. Frankly, I’m not much surprised.
A small corner of this mailer is devoted to an attack on Jeff Flake’s primary opponent, Wil Cardon. It shows Cardon surrounded by a flurry of hundred dollar bills. The text is, “When inexperienced millionaires try to buy an election with their family’s fortune They Don’t Tell The Truth.”
This implication that self-financing wealthy political activists can’t be trusted to tell the truth seems odd coming from a Republican. I suppose it means that to the extent that Romney uses his own fortune we can’t trust him to tell the truth.
Not sure you want to go there, guys.
