RRINOs Circulate Questionable Flier

One of the sleaziest fliers that hit my mailbox this weekend belonged to a faux Kootenai County Reagan Republicans organization. On the front, the flier asked "WWRD" (or What Would Ronald Reagan Do?) On the back, the flier recommended endorsements of the usual suspects in the Rally Right/UCNI/Liberty Caucus stable, including, curiously, Don Cheatham for the House District 3B seat. You and I both know that the real Reagan Republicans wouldn't endorse Cheatham over organization president Jeff Ward. I don't know for sure who these RRINO are. But I doubt that they'd pass the WWJD test.

Facebook message from Jeff Ward: Attention Reagan Republicans: A fraudulent flyer using KCRRs name and proprietary branding and common law trademarks hit mail boxes today in Kootenai County. None of the people endorsed in the piece are actually endorsed by Reagan Republicans. It is plain and simple statutory fraud. Fraud conducted via U.S. Mail is mail fraud, a federal felony. KCRR will pursue prosecution to the fullest extent of the law and will be filing requests for investigations with the U.S. Attorney, the United States Postal Inspection Service, the Idaho Attorney General, Kootenai County Sheriff and Prosecuting Attorney. Voter fraud and mail fraud are serious crimes and these criminals victimizing the voters of Kootenai County should be brought to swift and decisive justice. One would hope the candidates endorsed by this spurious mailer have enough character to publicly repudiate it and the criminals who sent it.

Question: Did you notice any candidates or individuals pulling dirty tricks over the weekend?
