MONTGOMERY, AL - Democrats are hitting back after a new republican campaign focuses on ethics issues dealing with dems. Republicans hope to use some of their counterparts' recent troubles with the law to gain more control come November 2010.
But democrats say the GOP is misleading voters with selective examples of embattled politicians.
"The ALGOP video cleverly omits the names and faces of three Republican Jefferson County Commissioners who have plead guilty or been indicted in the same Jefferson County scandal...Mary Buckalew, John Katapodis and Gary White," the Alabama Democratic Party reminded voters in a news release.
To further their case that ethics is not a democrat problem, the party rolled out the names of other GOP politicians with bullet points saying:
"Today, the Republicans threw rocks from a glass house from which they reside," the news release said.
Voters will have the ultimate say in the matter in just under a year.
