Otter Goes Negative Early

I received one of these in the mail last night. I rolled my eyes rather than rant. I also saw an TV commercial last night, linking A.J. Balukoff to Barack Obama and national Democratic policies. Boilerplate stuff for Idaho GOP candidates. Nasty stuff.

On his Facebook wall, Joseph Adam Graves posts: "Being registered as a Republican means i get this crap in the mail. You couldn't pay me enough to vote for the majority of them because well they are evil. Case in point this mailer. Every point raised on this propaganda is out of context and twisted. Balukoff was on the states largest school district in a state that is the worst in the nation for funding education. This means school districts ask the voters for levies to actually pay for what should be funded by the state. If anything the republicans behind this should be ashamed. Our agency makes political advertising but we would never create something so deceptive no matter what we were paid. Rant over."

Question: Why is Butch going negative so early?
