From the subscription-only Roll Call:
Abortion-rights groups are hoping to change that in the next few days — NARAL Pro-Choice New York just launched a campaign on Scozzafava’s behalf that includes mail to more than 10,000 households and volunteer phone banking “highlighting Scozzafava’s many pro-choice, pro-active votes in the State Assembly and her distinction as the only 100% pro-choice candidate in the race,” according to a news release from the group.
Assuming they don't want conservative party teabagger Doug Hoffman to win, this is beyond stupid. First of all, Scozzafava is dead-woman walking. Her numbers are tanking and she's been effectively marginalized out of the race. Her role now is that of spoiler -- can she take enough votes away from Hoffman to give the Democrat, Bill Owens, a plurality victory?
This NARAL effort is indistinguishable from the conservative dirty tricksters.
Somebody appears to be pulling a dirty trick in NY-23 -- with an ad "praising" moderate Republican Dede Scozzafava for all of her liberal positions that would drive GOP voters away from her and over to the Conservative Party's Doug Hoffman.
When your messaging and tactics are indistinguishable from the right-wing dirty tricksters, you know you've screwed up.
Nice waste of donor money.
