FAKE CONSERVATIVE "NEWSPAPER" IS NEARLY IDENTICAL TO OFFICIAL STEVE STOCKMAN LITERATURE
Challenger to Cornyn appears to be up to some of his old tricks, observers say
Note: Copies of
the official Stockman for Senate literature and the fake newspaper – which are
nearly identical – are at the bottom of this article – SB
campaigns of Rep. Steve Stockman,
R-Friendswood, have been unconventional for sure. Now that he’s challenging
Sen. John Cornyn in this Republican
primary, it appears people all over Texas are getting a taste of the tactics
Stockman’s used successfully in the past along the Gulf Coast to appeal to the
far right. This includes apparently publishing his own "newspapers"
that have started appearing this weekend in the mail boxes of some folks who
have voted in at least three Republican primaries.
a development that was first discovered
and tweeted by us here at QR Saturday night
- then subsequently picked
up by Big Jolly Politics in Houston on Sunday - these conservative “newspapers”
have been showing up at homes in Southeast Texas and Travis County. Those are
the ones we know of.
