The political mailer cites sexual misconduct allegations. It was paid for by a plumber’s union. Local political consultant Doug Elmets says the mayor needs to condemn the mailer.
"This is as low as it gets, whether it’s national, state or local politics. It has no place in this community. I’ve never seen anything like it and I am surprised that she hasn’t already denounced it. Clearly, she’s tried to separate herself from it but she really needs to make it much more definitive."
But Fargo’s campaign manager Dale Howard says they don’t plan to do anything about the attack ads. He says since the mailer was sent out by the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 447, it’s not theirs to denounce.
