Reports coming out of the Big Top on Devine Street have it that SCRG spokeman Neil Mellen is a little pissed off at the amount of direct mail he’s been getting from the state Republican Party.
It’s understandable — direct mail is the [insert green, leafy vegetable here] of politics. It’s a very needed and effective tactic, but like spam and phone calls, can irritate people.
Vierdsen has been told that Mellen, in a response to the state party, threatened to leave the party and max out his contributions to Democrats if the mailings continued.
Of course, this is the guy that brought the ACLU into VMI, so it wouldn’t be the first time he’s been involved with lefties.
Either way, it sounds like Katon’s been pretty zealous in hitting the print button.
