Tuesday, May 6, 2008 | Lorena is being disingenuous when she says the mailer was just a thank you to the City Council.

According to Evan McLaughlin, political director of the Labor Council, they reported the piece as an election campaign mailer to satisfy the San Diego Election Ordinance that I helped put in place. And that is what it is—a “Peters for City Attorney” mailer.

The mailer is a naked endorsement of Scott Peters for city attorney, and Lorena should be honest about that. Why conceal the fact by this foolish mailer?

Regulating the content of dishonest campaign mailers is too complicated for authorities.

That is why public criticism is the only way to keep union and business interests in line.
