Today was the last day of early voting for the four municipal runoff races. Election day is December 11. Until now there have been some jabs thrown around by some candidates and their supporters -- all political but nothing serious. That is, until today.
While having my crumpets and scanning the pages of The Nation this morning, I saw a new commercial from the Rosie Cuellar-Castillo camp. She's running against Madeline Lopez-Escoto for the municipal court judge seat. Anyhow, the spot paints Madeline as a name-changing, lying tax cheat. Pretty heavy stuff. The prestigious Cuellar name doesn't guarantee you a win so much nowadays, I guess. Apparently one has to resort to dirty tactics going into the runoffs.
Does this awful commercial have an effect on your decision? I'll find out come Saturday.
