About Jill Holtzman Vogel's Spark
Yes, Holtzman Vogel knows all about hardball politics as evidenced in her slime campaign against GOP opponent Mark Tate during the primary that precipitously landed him in trouble with the law.
Here's a citizen's musing on the "hatchet job" by Holtzman Vogel as published in Clarke Times Courier.
Come Election Day, Howling Latina will be voting for Democrat Karen Schultz, the "respected, hardworking educator, school board member and community leader," as the Washington Post opined.
During the Republican primary, Ms. Vogel, by proxy, did a classic hatchet job on her opponent, Mark Tate. Perhaps he was culpable or perhaps he was not, but the technique employed leaves a cloud of doubt around her campaign. Interesting that after her primary "victory", the charges against Mr. Tate have now been dropped. As a result, several of my Republican friends have decided they cannot vote for Ms. Vogel. By contrast, Karen Schultz has pursued an honorable and principled path of political discourse throughout this campaign.
Ghost of Tricky Dicky or just good ol' character assassination of the Rovian kind; the woman in red is toxic -- as she hides in blue behind her signs.
