SIGN, SIGN, EVERYWHERE A SIGN: Last-Minute Campaign Jujitsu Attempt In LD20 Race; I'll Smear You By Saying You Smeared Me

The State House race in LD20 (SE Valley) has shaped up to be one of the Republican's targets.  Thus, it is unsurprising that it has become nastier near the finish line. 

Within the past couple of days, GOP nominee Jeff Dial has blanketed the district with 8' X 4' signs claiming to be the victim of smears at the hands of his opponent.  Text:

"Rae Waters, why the dirty last minute smears against Dial? The attacks aren't true. Get the facts. Visit Ld20truth.com."
Naturally, this piqued my curiosity.  And, practically begged for an Arizona's Politics Fact Check.  That Fact Check is largely written;  however, I have decided to hold it just a little bit longer to obtain a copy of the mailer that has turned Dial into a victim (which - based upon Dial's accusers* - would be a turnabout), and to receive return phone calls from the various parties.  If you have a copy of the mailer attacking Dial, please e-mail info-at-arizonaspolitics-dot-com, or call 602-799-7025.


* Dial's accusers, according to Dial's characterizations and defenses on the special website.
