Coffman Enters "Throwing-Stuff-At-Wall" Stage of Campaign

This is your message? Really?
Really? THIS is your message?

As Joey Bunch writes for the Denver Post today, the campaign for Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Aurora) is running a new radio ad attacking Democratic opponent Morgan Carroll for, um, having an occupation outside of politics.

Coffman’s campaign is spending $45,000 on radio ads to deliver this message:

“Search for yourself: Morgan Carroll, state senator… and Morgan Carroll, personal injury lawyer… it’s all there.  Conflicts of interest.  An odor of corruption.  And with Carroll’s history working for some of the most notorious law firms in the state – that should scare us all.

“Morgan Carroll, state senator. and Morgan Carroll, personal injury lawyer — either way, she’s just another politician we can’t trust.  Even a simple web search tells us that.”

Morgan Carrol is lawyer! Morgan Carroll bad!

Okay, what year is this? Did we somehow travel back to 2002? You’re really going to base an entire attack ad on the premise that your opponent is a trial lawyer?

But…but…”search for yourself,” says Coffman’s ad.

Sigh. Fine.

Here’s what comes up when you search for “Morgan Carroll”:

Dangit! Where is all of this information about scary trial lawyer Morgan Carroll? Are we using the wrong Internet?

We’ll let Carroll’s campaign manager, Jennifer Donovan, have the last word here (via the Post):

“Mike Coffman is attacking people with disabilities like Linda Salyers whom Morgan has spent her career fighting for. Morgan has never personally benefited or profited from any bill — ever. But facts don’t matter to Mike Coffman and Donald Trump. Unfortunately, this is the type of gutter politics that can be expected from a man who lacks the moral courage to denounce Donald Trump even after he mocked people with disabilities. This whole thing wreaks of desperation, and quite frankly, it says a lot about Mike Coffman’s character.”

Indeed.

    1. I wouldn't vote for one if my life depended on it.

      Yeah…but you will hire one to save your ass when someone takes you to court or you get busted for being stupid….which is a misdemeanor in some places…..

       

  1. Kudos to the Carroll campaign tying Coffman to Trump whenever possible.

    BTW – Will Mike Coffman vote for Trump?  Maybe Joey Bunch could ask that question and get a definitive answer, or am I asking too much of the Denver Post?

  2. Nothing about teaming up with her mother, a lawyer.  A mother-daughter lawyer office.  Damned fine office too.  If one woman lawyer is hard on Mikey, two is enough to cause palpitations.
