A note to readers: A direct-mail piece from Lovely Warren’s mayoral campaign contains a quote from our August 21 endorsement article. The quote, taken out of context, could give the impression that we endorsed Warren for mayor. We did not; we endorsed incumbent Tom Richards.
This kind of campaign tactic is nothing new, to politics or to us. And it is not illegal (although in our more cynical moments, it tempts us to refrain from saying anything complimentary about any candidate we aren’t endorsing, whatever their strong points).
The tactic is, however, always disappointing, and we’re sorry to see the Warren campaign doing it.
