Why is Suzanne Dale Estey running such a negative campaign?
A new mailer has come out has come out that tops them all. (Apparently, some people have received this but, if they sent it citywide, some of you may not see it until Monday or Tuesday.)
It is a flyer that uses an illustration created FOR No on 1240. It very clearly has a sticker with No on 1240 and says it across the bottom of the piece. Dale Estey's campaign knew this when they created it.
(My campaign did not create this illustration nor did the teachers' union campaign. It was created by one person who wanted to express their opinion. Dora Taylor, Sue's co-writer, put it up at the Seattle Education Blog for others to see during the 1240 campaign.)
The title Dale Estey's campaign uses is “Evil Doers” and looks like something straight out of the National Enquirer. Below you will find the original illustration.
The mailer is deceptive and uses Sue's photo to block-out NO on 1240. So voters won't know this image was created for a completely different issue than a School Board race and Sue had nothing to do with it.
It is wrong to attribute words and images that Sue neither said nor created.
What does Sue have to say?
The Dale Estey PAC mailed yet another dishonest flyer to Seattle voters on Friday, for a total of four such attacks on my candidacy since July. This one is truly bizarre.
Sadly, some people will say or pay anything to win an election.
Apparently so, Sue.
