Elections: Dammeier attack ads are disgusting

This last week was witness to the most obvious reasons our political culture is totally rotten. Pierce County executive candidate Bruce Dammeier’s campaign has spent money and campaign resources trying to damage his opponent with negative ad attacks, and it’s only the primary.

He has sent very rude and unsolicited robo phone calls bashing Dan Roach, and has aired many times the same attack ad on television. Then last Saturday came a very rude “slick Willy” attack mailer.

The people in this county do not want and will not accept merchants of fear, managers by discovery, knowers of nothing or political hacks. Dammeier’s real goal is to be governor. The executive position punches his ticket. He is not Booth Gardner. The News Tribune’s endorsement was in error.
