Carl Paladino, the New York gubernatorial Republican nominee, recently mailed voters a garbage-scented flier smearing Democratic politicians. About 200,000 flyers went out to New Yorkers with the headline "Something STINKS in Albany", each was scented to smell like a landfill. Paladino spokesman Michael Caputo told the Associated Press that the smell will get worse the longer the flyers sit.
I think it's perfectly fitting that Paladino sent out a flyer that smells like garbage, no matter its focus. The guy is way out on the right fringe of the political spectrum, and I hope the good voters of New York send him packing, along with his tea bags, in November.
