‘LiberalAJ’ Site Targets Demo Balukoff

Seems there's a new Web site devoted to attacking Democrat A.J. Balukoff -- The opening text gives you some idea re: what the site is all about: "A.J. Balukoff wants voters to believe he’s some kind of level-headed moderate – but don’t be mistaken...he’s not. These are serious times in our country – Idahoans don’t support the direction our federal government, under Barack Obama, is taking our country. And we can’t afford another liberal taking us down the same paths." In a press release, Balukoff denounced the Web site: "He has decided to go negative. That's disappointing, because we feel the voters should hear directly from the candidates about their views and records. It's also not a surprise to see the state's richest business group backing Gov. Otter, who has been a recipient of their generous financial support in the past. This slander campaign is bankrolled by the Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry, where Gov. Otter's campaign manager Jayson Ronk last worked as a lobbyist before coming to work to help get Gov. Otter re-elected. Gov. Otter's campaign leadership is staffed with high-powered lobbyists who know who butters their bread." Balukoff news release here.

Question: Would you be persuaded by a Web site like this?
