Are these people really running a U.S. Senate race?
It began with a Missouri Republican Party press release accusing Democrat Claire McCaskill of failing to file a routine campaign finance report on time.
The release included an Internet link to a July 28 letter from the Federal Election Commission to McCaskill saying she “may have failed to file” the pre-primary finance report. Missouri GOP spokesman Paul Sloca said the FEC letter exposed McCaskill’s “incompetence and her willful disregard for the law.”
McCaskill’s campaign denounced the Republican statement as inaccurate – and unprofessional, in light of the death Saturday of Melissa Berridge, the campaign’s compliance director.
Berridge, 38, of St. Louis, was among six skydivers who died Saturday in the crash near the eastern Missouri town of Sullivan.
That’s right, she died, of course she didn’t get the report filed.
This is a campaign killer, why would a State Party do this to their own candidate?
