Last Wednesday, Yes Weekly conservative columnist Jim Longworth took one of the many attacks I received from the Right-wing attack machine that has apparently put its target on my back. Misinformation and quoting to fit their propaganda was the order of the day.
First let me back up a little. I received a call from N&R reporter Mark Binker about a story he was doing on my opponent's age and tenure in the US House of Representatives. I answered his questions via phone and he wrote this article. On January 2nd a well formulated right wing attack is launched in several areas, all regarding my quotes from the article.
It seems the right wing pundits want to see my primary opponent and not me in the general election. They assure themselves another 70-30 blowout facing him, they fear the unknown and my "not the usual politico" self in a battle facing me. I am in this to win and that is what I plan to do.
Here is Longworth's original attack column. Click through and read it. It's a hoot!
I was offered the opportunity to write a rebuttal to Longworth's piece by Yes Weekly and I did.
