Political Notebook


Republicans paint too

Apparently the county Democratic Party isn’t the only one trying to paint an opposing mayoral candidate in a less than flattering light online.

After writing about their efforts to enlighten voters on GOP nominee Paula Hughes’ record – and the Hughes’ campaigns immediate opposition to it – Political Notebook was quickly informed that county Republicans are doing the same thing with Mayor Tom Henry.

In fact, the titles are eerily similar – therealpaula.com and therealtomhenry.com.

The Republicans site, which at least says is paid for by the county GOP, paints Henry as a tax and spend liberal. The site has some catchy tab names, such as “Hey Big Spender” and “Den of Vice.”

Unfortunately both of those tabs are blank, as the site appears to still be under construction, but available for public view.
