The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) accuses RI Sen candidate Steve Laffey of improperly using Cranston, RI government resources to "pay for campaign propaganda."
According to the NRSC, when Cranston mailed residents their tax bills in June, a "patently" political letter from Laffey was attached.
"The letter closed with the Mayor's signature and the slogan "As always, fighting for you" - a similar slogan to the one that appears in numerous Laffey campaign materials including a sign outside his campaign headquarters."
The complaint notes the ensuing media firestorm.
Laffey's spokesperson, Nachama Soloveichik , responds: " It is no surprise that Linc Chafee and his political bosses down in Washington are in such disarray that they have nothing better to do than to jump into bed with the Democratic Party hacks on the Cranston City Council with this ridiculous and frivolous complaint."
Funny how the Club for Growth isn't getting the sort of attention progressive bloggers are for engaging in democracy and challenging incumbent Republicans.
