Campaign Mailers from Fake Democrats

The following Letter to the Editor, from Sonoma County Democratic Party Chair Stephen Gale, ran in the May 28,2012?Petaluma Argus Courier,?the May 21, 2012?Sonoma Index Tribune, and the Sonoma County Gazette:
Editor: It must be a good year to be a Democrat because so many people claim to be one.

Take, for instance, the folks at the California Voters Guide who just issued a mailer to registered voters in Sonoma County's First Supervisorial District?implying that your local?Democratic Party?is endorsing John Sawyer for supervisor.

Not true.

The party central committee, which represents the 128,000 registered Democrats in Sonoma County, carefully considered the candidacies of five Democrats in the race and none?of them achieved the necessary two-thirds majority to win our endorsement in the Primary election.

The deceptive "Attention Democrats" mailer also claims that Democrats oppose Proposition 28 and 29.

Also not true.?

We favor Proposition 28 because it updates restrictions on legislators' term limits and we favor Proposition 29, which imposes additional cigarette taxes to fund cancer research.?

For what the real Democrats of Sonoma County think about candidates and ballot issues, see?

Don't be fooled by fake politicians from phony Southern California postmarks.
