Knife In The Water – RtWing Repub Blog The Dagger Spreads “Dirty Political Smear” – Helton Responds

headermaroon3%20copy724968 The Right-Wing Republican political blog The Dagger last week posted a “dirty political smear” on Art Helton disguised as a journalistic investigation (The Art of War – No Tactic Off Limits). The Dagger in effect dug up an accusation that was dismissed immediately last August by the States Attorney and closed immediately as a case by the Aberdeen P.D. and attempted to turn it into a “political hit” two weeks before the Aberdeen town elections. The Dagger reports the “dirty political smear” as if some other political force is spreading it. The “dirty political smear” is being spread by The Dagger.
This week Art Helton communicated his response to The Dagger’s “dirty political smear” in a post card mailing that stated:

“Another Aberdeen City Election and another attempt by some to be vicious and personally attack anyone that opposes them. I seem to have gotten the brunt of the last two Aberdeen elections. This latest politically motivated attack is particularly mean-spirited involving nasty accusations about me that were unfounded. These political tactics are truly hurtful to my wife and our four daughters.
As an Aberdeen businessman for over 40 years, I have taken great pride in the City of Aberdeeen and have been a leader in helping to revitalize our City. This revitalization has brought millions of dollars in property tax base and over 275 new jobs to Aberdeen. Hopefully, these personal attacks on me and others will be judged for what they are “Dirty Smear Politics” in an election year.”
