If Elected, He Promises To Seal the Arizona-New Mexico Border

Posted By on Fri, Aug 18, 2006 at 8:24 AM

The Skinny recently observed that Republican David Gowan, who is seeking one of two House seats in Legislative District 30, is dumber than a bag of hammers. We also predicted that he'd soon be mailing a hit piece targeting Rep. Marian McClure, the Republican incumbent who is seeking her fourth House term in LD30. (Even Gowan isn't stupid enough to target the other House member, Rep. Jonathan Paton, who will soon be headed to Iraq for a tour of duty to fulfill his responsibilities as a member of the Army Reserve.)

Well, Gowan—who accused McClure of being "pro-sodomy" at a recent debate—has proved us right on both counts. He used his Clean Elections dollars to send off a hit piece targeting McClure on several issues. But he sent it not to Republican primary voters in District 30, which includes Tucson's east side, Green Valley and Sierra Vista. Instead, it landed in mailboxes in District 26, which includes the Catalina Foothills, Casas Adobes and Oro Valley.

As Bugs Bunny would observe: What a maroon!

More to come in next week's Skinny.
