Josh Mandel Attack

It has been said quite a lot this campaign season how the Republicans are conducting a nasty negative campaign. I have written several times how I have thought the Democrats on the national stage were just as guilty in the negative campaigning, well I think I have seen or heard the most negative thoughts by a Democrat here in Cuyahoga county.

I learned of this from Joel Mowbray at Townhall.com.

To quote Mowbray's article:

The opponent in his tough re-election fight, trial attorney Bob Belovich, is attacking Mr. Mandel’s service, arguing that he abandoned voters. Mr. Belovich’s wife, Barbara, acknowledged in an interview for this column that she has told voters that Mr. Mandel “went AWOL” (a military term for desertion) by fighting in Iraq.

Even Mr. Mandel’s motives for serving in Iraq are being questioned. Mrs. Belovich claimed in an interview with this columnist that Mandel “put his personal ambitions ahead of his constituents.” Asked why anyone would enter a war zone out of “personal ambition,” Barbara Belovich replied curtly, “Certainly he wasn’t serving our needs.”

Here is one outlet with what was said.

Here is Josh Mandel talking about this slam

Unfortunately, this story is beginning to be picked up by some of the big bloggers, like POWERLINE and BLACKFIVE

Not a good political move by the Mr or Mrs Belovich.
