Rent a Family

I hate to take a dig at Ben Quayle, running against Pamela Gorman in Arizona’s 3rd and also son of the former Vice President, but this is just too funny.Quayle sent out a mail piece of him holding one young child with another in a seat. The caption under it reads, in part, “Tiffany and I live in this district and we are going to raise our family here.”The implication is clear — these are his two girls and he’s going to raise them in Arizona’s 3rd.There is just one problem. Ben Quayle does not have any children. If you flip the mail piece over, you’ll see that Ben lives in Phoenix with his wife and dog.I see this frequently from young candidates. I can’t believe mail designers still pull this trick. It is silly.You can see the mail piece for yourself right here.
