The Bob Turner campaign today said that the Democrats made a seismic error this afternoon when they sent out a release about “an earthshaking” revelation about their candidate. The campaign suggested that David Weprin retrofit his press releases to make sure that they are in the bounds of good taste.
As we wrote earlier, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee cleverly found its way into the news cycle in its knock on Turner receiving money from his investment in oil companies while making a pledge to not raise taxes on any companies, oil or otherwise.
From the Turner camp:
In a news release issued an hour after the quake, the Weprin campaign blaringly announced an “Earthshaking Development,” which turned out to be yet another mindless campaign attack on Mr. Turner – like the ones former New York City Mayor Ed Koch (D) has repeatedly asked Mr. Weprin to halt.
“Today’s earthquake frightened a lot of New Yorkers, including children and seniors citizens who remain deeply unsettled from the tremors,” said Turner campaign spokesman William O’Reilly. “Using a terrifying incident like an earthquake – an hour after it occurred – as a political punch line is highly inappropriate. We would ask that Mr. Weprin use better judgment in the remaining days of this campaign.”
