I am curious concerning the letter from Robin Farris. This is so blatantly an ad I am wondering how she got this published without labeling it “Political Advertisement” and paying for it, or is this another of her freebies, even to publishing her web site, how to mail petitions, where they will be located, times and places.

She has gotten quite a lot so far. What a way to get publicity without paying for it. It seems there is more to this than meets the eye. Let’s watch closely to see, if she is successful, who will replace Dale Washam.

Would Washam be given the same opportunity to ask the public to not sign the petitions and list addresses where you could find info as to why not? Methinks not!

I was also amazed at the editorial in The News Tribune and would certainly think it should also be a political advertisement.

Whatever happened to fair play anyway?
