You can smell the republican flop sweat. Today the Missouri House republican Campaign Committee ran a robocall in the 121st Legislative District attacking Courtney Cole (D) in terms that have never been seen before in this district:
Female voice: This is an urgent alert for all Christian families. Before you vote you should know that state representative candidate Courtney Cole has taken hundreds in campaign donations from a representative of the hard core pornography industry, including gay pornography. By allowing her Democratic campaign to be funded by those who are involved with and support hard core pornography Courtney Cole clearly does not share our Christian family values. On election day stand up for what's right and decent by voting no on Courtney Cole. Paid for by House Republican Campaign Committee, Inc.Evidently they don't care about the Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, or Wiccan (among many others) families in the district. Or maybe the HRCC feels less urgency for those families. Are they saying their favorite candidate feels the same way? Just asking. They know him better than we do. A baseless accusation with no substance. Check. Exploiting religion. Check. Homophobia. Check. That's the Missouri republican party for you. And those ain't exactly family values. The folks in the HRCC who paid for this robocall were walking with Denny Hoskins (r-noun, verb, CPA) and wearing his campaign t-shirt in last weekend's homecoming parade in Warrensburg. That makes it difficult for Denny Hoskins (r-noun, verb, CPA) to distance himself from the HRCC, don't you think? Do you think he cares? Just asking.
