Elliott and Griffin mix it up

Posted By on Fri, Sep 17, 2010 at 4:05 PM

A good report by Jason Tolbert, with plenty of video, from a joint appearance before the Pulaski Bar today by 2nd District congressional candidates Joyce Elliott and Tim Griffin. Griffin, the Republican, wrapped himself in a loving embrace of Democratic Rep. Mike Ross on 1) his support for tax cuts for the wealthy and 2) Ross' unflattering citation by an independent group that has named Griffin one of the 11 crookedest candidates on the ballot this year for his work on the Bush White House political hit squad.

To have Tim Griffin, who helped run a dirty tricks machine, complain about negative campaigning is rich. To have him say Mike Ross was called crooked, too, as a defense of his own misdeeds is irrelevant. To cite Mike Ross on tax policy is to parrot the Republican line. As Elliott said, why won't Griffin just answer the charges against HIM? She acquitted herself well.
