Sleazy direct mail pieces trying to save Rep. Scott Krug (R-Nekoosa) from defeat this November are being sent out in the 72nd assembly district in central Wisconsin.
The pieces come from the shadowy Job First Coalition, Inc out of Brookfield, working on Krug's behalf to defame the character of Krug's opponent. This is what we have come to expect from anyone working on Krug's behalf.
Krug is ethically unfit for office.
This morning's Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune has some advice for voters regarding this dishonest and sleazy attack in the 72nd assembly district:
Every other October is also attack-mailer season, and anyone with a mailbox can attest that, right on time, the slimy, sketchily sourced fliers have begun appearing daily.
We've seen them in many races across the region and they're not worth dignifying with a rebuttal. After all, they aren't making arguments; they're trying to scare voters through implication, association and selective editing.
They are a gross part of politics, perhaps even worse than broadcast attacks. The proper response is to quickly dispense with them, straight into the recycling bin.
