Pittsburgh City Councilor Theresa Smith's Deceptive Fliers

Bram at The Pittsburgh Comet has posted a flyer from Theresa Smith who is running in the primary election on Tuesday for City Council in District 2. He points out that the flyer makes it seem as though Smith won the endorsement of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The P-G endorsed Georgia Blotzer (both for the May 19th primary as well as in the shockingly low turnout February special election which Smith won):
Blotzer in District 2: She's the best council choice for the Democrats

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Active choice: Blotzer deserves a seat on City Council
Tuesday, January 27, 2009
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Moreover, Smith's flyer also misleads voters about what funding she has secured.

Naturally, she's the Committee endorsed candidate.

[sigh]

On the brighter side, Georgia Blotzer has won the endorsement of Michael Lamb.
