I actually have the campaign flyer in question. It’s sitting on my hard drive, all ready to hand that stupid Mick bastard who gets drunk at Jody’s his head… but then I woke up to this:
Republican congressional candidate Michael Grimm yesterday called “despicable” a campaign mailer from Democratic Rep. Michael McMahon that Grimm says seeks to link him — by virtue of his last name — to the city’s controversial decision to cut yellow school bus service to seventh- and eighth-graders here.
Department of Education Deputy Chancellor for Operations Kathleen Grimm — no relation to the first-time candidate — made the call to pull the buses to save money, infuriating some 3,000 Staten Island families.
The McMahon piece uses the name Grimm liberally in recounting the decision, and in a clip-off protest coupon parents are urged to mail. The piece began arriving in Island mailboxes Tuesday and was paid for by the New York State Democratic Committee.
Anyone who thinks Mikey has this election in the bag is an utter fool.
