I was neutral about this particular race until I received the most vile piece of garbage campaign mailer I have ever seen. Shame on the Koppel campaign. How desperate do you have to be to use the death of a small child to win an election? I am beyond disgusted. I was going to sit this one out, but now I'm voting against disgusting, callous and sensationalist advertising.

Using a dead child ad for political gain was, hands down, the most DISGUSTING, UPSETTING, AND HORRIFIC tactic for votes I have ever seen in my life. Kopel has also broken the law of mailers including disclaimers to state who paid for them. If you are going to accuse your opponent of being responsible for the death of a sweet, young child...at least have the guts to put your name on it. Gross. Anyone that votes for Kopel should have their head examined.
