No. But I never use handouts as my voting guide.

Why would she sue? This is between the state and the candidates.

I believe a judge has already ordered that the group stop distributing those "sample ballots."

Yeah a judge did. What do you all think about this. I think this Jerry Mathis character was wrong for doing this. It seems like a underhanded thing to do.

A Washington Post article discussed that ballot and other "sample ballots" that endorsed other (and some of the same) candidates. They were more straightforward and less "underhanded" than the inaccurate ballot that is the subject of this thread. I've seen the more straightforward ads (that's what they are) in my mailbox for years. I look at them and discard them. I also see them for what they are -- advertisements. The more controversial one, which also was inaccurate, goes into the dirty politics category. But this primary has been rather dirty. A bunch of people jockeying for position, trying to make a name for themselves and splitting votes. Few are standouts.
