The Eleventh Commandment
Editorial by Robert Anderson Publisher Lehigh Acres Gazette
The Eleventh Commandment was a phrase used by later President of the United States Ronald Reagan during his 1966 campaign for Governor of California. The Commandment reads:
Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.
Do today Republicans understand that, No! Especially in Southwest Florida right now.
Look at Wednesday’s joint press conference with Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto, Michael Dreikorn and Page Kreegel.
It was a very bizarre news conference — that got even stranger by the end. Candidate Curt Clawson’s opponents called the media together to question why a sex offender was living in his Utah rental property and Clawson’s financial disclosures — then Clawson showed up.
Clawson must have balls made of brass for showing up, but it worked for him.
All these campaigns have so negative for weeks why, for what purpose? And now a joint conference?
I think the thing that troubles me the most was the original e-mail that can out about the joint conference from Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto, Michael Dreikorn and Page Kreegel from Kreegel’s super pac Values are Vital. So someone from the Super PAC had to have had a talk with each of the candidates or their staff before made the announcement of the press conference, could this be a violation of the federal elections laws.
On the email it states at the bottom — Paid for by Values Are Vital PAC Not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.
So where is the transparency??????
