Skip to comments.CA: Garamendi mailer quotes wrong David Harmer
Posted on 10/14/2009 9:54:41 AM PDT by NormsRevenge
A campaign mailer from 10th Congressional District candidate and Democrat Lt. Gov. John Garamendi that hit mailboxes today contained a reference to a quote from the wrong guy.
The Garamendi mailer states that his Republican challenger David Harmer supports off shoring jobs and cites a story from the Utahs Deseret News from April 23, 2004.
Unfortunately for Garamendis opposition research team, the story quotes the David Harmer who was executive director of the Utah State Department of Community and Economic Development.
The David Harmer who is running against Garamendi never held that job and wasnt living in Utah at the time. Its a different David Harmer.

Good research folk are so hard to find these days.. lol
I wouldn’t be surprised if it wasn’t done on purpose. Liberals know that once it’s out there, people remember it whether or not it’s the truth. People remember front page headlines, not the retraction on page 17 several days later.
Doesn’t matter. It is the seriousness of the charge that counts. Facts don’t enter into it.
So, what? Democrats will state (correctly) that they stand by their statement. They are, after all, accurate in the statement that David Harmer said “such and such.” No matter that they have the wrong David Harmer. I predict there will be no correction provided by the DemoncRAT. /sarc
Real ugly and real early. (Apologies to all the Hog pilots out there)
