LETTER: Junk politics at its worst

To the Editor:

The Lee County Republican Party has debased itself recently with a mailing campaign against Sanford City Council candidate Chas Post. The mailer shamefully uses the death of a child to score political points ... . This is junk politics at its very worst, and a vile defamation.

I do not know how many Sanford residents received this mailing, but I do hope that Republicans and Democrats alike will express outrage at ... mudslinging tactics. I shudder to think what moral depths one must reach in order to exploit the death of a child to win an election.

The Lee GOP must indeed be a party in desperation.
