SLEAZE MAIL: CANDIDATE ATTACKS RIVAL ON AGE, NUMBER OF KIDS, AND LIVING WITH HIS MOTHER
October 16, 2011--3:00 AM CDT
A direct mail piece is creating quite a stir in the hotly contested race for district 103! Ray Garofalo has been endorsed by U.S. Senator David Vitter, and is known for his ties to the video poker industry.
He is also responsible for the controversial piece in which he calls Bayham a "37-year-old with no wife, no kids, who lives with his mother."
Is he comparing the candidates' positions on tax policy? Education policy? Gaming? Any issue of substance?
Garafolo seems to think that age, number of kids, and a wedding band are what really matter to the people of district 103!
Click here for large version of mail piece.
We are told that even Garofalo's own wife has chided him for the piece.

la house district #103 ray garofalo vitter endorsed sleaze mail.
this race is likely a toss-up as to which candidate would be the worst. time and a voting record will tell.
mr. bayham has a lot higher name recognition his work being picked up and mentioned online a lot.
at first we thought that we had mr. bayham confused with another blogger but it turns out that he does write the the sports blog we were thinking of.
we'd have to agree with mr. bayham's response and add that if the garofalo campaign cant easily and articulately present some rino traits to mr. bayham's platform to the voters or doesnt care to instead choosing this -- then how can their constituents really rely on their being smart enough to read house and senate bills to figure out what they really mean?
