Desperate Democrats and That Mailer

It just keeps getting worse for Florida Democrats after they put out a mailer depicting a child “on a shooting target with bullets strewn around under it, and the imagery has incited disappointment and ire from the Parkland parents.”

Democratic lawmakers deny they had anything to do with it, while leadership says everyone approved it.

Who is telling the truth?

Democratic Senate nominee Janelle Perez emphatically told The Floridian that she had nothing to do with the mailer and did not approve the imagery.

Sen. Lauren Book, the Democratic Minority Leader in the Senate, said Perez and others did approve of the mailer.

Either way, you slice this, it’s a lose-lose for Democrats.

So much for being the “No Guns” and “Gun Safety” political party. READ MORE
