The Most Devastating Attack Mailers in MoCo

Senator Nancy King’s two new lit pieces targeting challenger Saqib Ali are malevolent masterpieces of mayhem. Brace yourselves, folks, for the most devastating attack mailers in MoCo!

These two mailers showed up very close together, with some households getting them on the same day. Such are the vagaries of working with mail companies.



Until now, the standard for negative campaigning was set by the End Gridlock slate’s effort to defeat former Council Member Blair Ewing and former Senator Ida Ruben’s effort to get rid of Delegate Dana Dembrow, both of which succeeded. But King’s effort exceeds both of them in terms of the depth of her opposition research on Ali and the multitude of platforms she is using to convey it. The photos, the attack website, the attack blog and now the mailers probably constitute the most comprehensive campaign of political destruction ever conducted in MoCo.
