Mich GOP goes to the gutter, mailer asks people to call Dem candidate's mother who is in hospice

This story is beyond disgusting. The Michigan Republican Party has mailed out a hit piece on John Fisher the Democratic candidate for Michigan's 61st House district. The mailer asks the recipient to call a phone number to complain about Fisher's support of the Affordable Care Act. The number they give rings at the bedside of Fisher's mother, 91-year-old Isabel Marie Kramb, who is in hospice care with congestive heart failure.

snip...

Fisher, as you might imagine, is outraged.

"The Republican Party has encouraged people to call me before, which worked to my advantage, because most people agree with me that policies that improve life for families and seniors are good for Michigan. But to direct people to call a suffering woman who deserves peace and comfort is beyond the pale. Their lack of ethics and contempt for personal privacy is just another reason for people to question what or better, who the Republican Party stands for, so that they can make a wise decision at the ballot box on Nov. 4.

I am disgusted that Republicans are recklessly bullying my mother when she needs rest and quiet the most, but she is not the only senior in Michigan whose life has been disrupted because of them. My competitor, Brandt Iden, should denounce the Michigan Republican Party for such appalling tactics in his name. Lansing Republicans showed contempt for all seniors when they forced them to pay extra in order to fund giveaways for major corporations. The men and women who worked hard all their lives so that their families could succeed deserve better than that, and I will work hard to protect the dignity and security of Michigan seniors when I am in Lansing."

Fisher's campaign acknowledged it had no issue with past Republican mailers that told voters to call him at his personal number,

they'd used his number in previous flyers. why did they change the number to the one that rings at his mother's hospice?

easy to make such a mistake? How would anyone feel about the dem candidate posting a few cell phone numbers for folks to call and have them turn out to be to the repub candidate's children? Would we still hear 'oh, its just an honest error'? Dirty tricks are dirty tricks, no matter which party is guilty and allowing them to make whiny little excuses and walk away with no consequences only encourages politicians to continue doing this sort of thing.

It is not only a KOS story but they relate the origination from a Progressive Blog as the KOS link is linked to. In searching its only being seen on far left sites its hard to believe this isn;t in the main stream media.......................However, it doesn't make it true.

1. His opponent didn't produce the flier.
2. The state party made the flier, I know they may have asked the campaign if it were ok and probably did, I doubt they verified the number assuming they had it right.
3. They got the number wrong it wasn't suppose to be his mothers number so it was a mistake.
4. They said that this is a dirty trick applied by the parties over the years.
5. I don't agree with this tactic from either side and I don't like this one. You gotta be a real ass to give someones personal number out. If that was their intention.

Drum Roll Please bababababababababaabaaaaa CHING!: Cee'Gar puts foot in mouth one more time.

In the elections for governor of Florida in the early 1990's Lawton Chiles, a Democrat, made the statement "The He Coon hunts at night" and then proceeded to have campaign members call the elderly voters in the state and tell them his opponent (Jeb Bush) was going to stop social security and medicare payments to them. He did this a week before the election, scaring the low information voter and won the election. He died soon after.

Actually, what happened was Fisher purposefully rerouted all telephone calls from what had previously been his number to his ailing mother. He was really a bastard in my opinion.

Hillary Clinton adviser started an election-day traffic jam in 2000

12:28 AM 01/10/2014

Michael Whouley, founding partner of the strategy group tied to Hillary Clinton’s budding 2016 presidential effort, orchestrated a traffic jam to help his client Al Gore win the 2000 New Hampshire primary against Bill Bradley.

“Michael Whouley came up with a last-ditch scheme: Send Gore into areas of southern New Hampshire where there was a lot of Bradley support among upscale voters and commuters who worked across the border in Massachusetts. Many of them cast their ballots late in the day after driving home. Gore’s motorcade — candidate, press, Secret Service, and police — could snarl traffic and keep some of the commuters from ever getting to their polling places or even trying to,” Shrum wrote.

Gore was “irate” at the “massive traffic jam” but then “Gore got the point” after Whouley explained that “they’re mostly Bradley voters.”

Whouley was one of three close officials from the strategy firm the Dewey Square Group who met with Clinton at her Embassy Row house in early summer 2013 to discuss plans for an upcoming presidential effort. Whouley also managed Clinton’s victorious 2008 primary campaign field operation in New Hampshire, eight years after pulling off Gore’s traffic jam in the state.

Republican New Jersey governor and 2016 presidential prospect Chris Christie is currently under fire for actions apparently taken by members of his staff to close highway lanes in the city of a Democratic mayor who did not endorse his re-election bid, according to recently released staff emails. Christie said in a press conference Thursday that he is “embarrassed and humiliated” by the scandal and he fired his deputy chief of staff Bridget Anne Kelly.

New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman, a Hillary Clinton fundraiser and Christie’s Democratic successor in the post, is currently investigating the matter involving Christie’s staff.

Nothing has been disproven. One link says it's true and the next says it's a lie.

You have chosen to believe it's a lie, and that is your right. But no matter who is doing it- John himself or the Republican party- it's disgusting.
The phone number on the flyer is registered in John Fisher' name. : http://www.mlive.com/news/kalamazoo/index.ssf/2014/10/portage_democrat_john_fisher_d.html : From the link : "The number is registered under Fisher's name, but is a direct line to his mother's room at Tendercare Portage, " : Which leads to the questions : why in his name yet a direct line to his mother and when was it registered ?? A setup or stupid mistakes by one or both sides ??

Well, he probably pays for his elderly mothers phone line as she is in hospice and it's in his name. That's not stupid.

Again, regardless of whether it's a mistake or not, even giving out the mans home phone is disgusting at best.

Both sides do shit like this, btw. It's what happens when winning is more important than governing.

BTW it is rather funny that Cigar failed his own thread and discredited the KosKid with the posting of the flyer pic. And another tidbit if the KosKids posted the pic (have not looked) they are either about as smart of rocks or they believe their readership is no smarter than a box of rocks.

I think it's disgusting that Mrs. Fisher is being harrassed. She has her son to thank for that.
