I received in the mail an ad from an ostensibly “values-oriented” organization whose perpetrators said not a word about a candidate they were supporting, but whose ad was nothing but a dredging up of past misdeeds of a candidate they were opposing.
The ad was dirty. It did not succeed in besmirching the candidate they sought to destroy; rather, it revealed a level of malevolence that ought to be of concern to every citizen who ever made mistakes as a young person but who, with maturity, recognized their misdeeds, and redirected their lives.
That probably includes the majority of the population. Even King David of Scripture prayed, “Remember not the sins of my youth.”
One of the purposes of the justice system is rehabilitation of offenders. Apparently the group responsible for the smear attempt has no faith in the system, and, obviously, no ability to keep their politics clean and above board.
If the ad was published with the favored candidate’s approval, and if I can find out who their candidate is, I will certainly vote against that person.
