Scott Schmerelson DID NOT DONATE to Trump or any Republican organization and his opponent knows this. The reported payment is to a well known campaign vendor.
Scott’s campaign purchased advertising on at least a dozen “slate mail cards” targeting different groups of voters. One of the slates targeted Republican voters. It is a common practice for candidates in non-partisan races to pool resources when they do not have millions of dollars to spend on expensive individual mailers. There is literally an asterisk on these slate mailers saying that candidates don’t necessarily support other candidates on the mailer.
Especially in these transitional times, should Scott not be asking all voters to check out his record? Is it the position of Scott’s opponent that neither she nor her supporters are mailing to Republican households?
Despite our opponent’s efforts to confuse the issue, Scott Schmerelson is the only candidate for School Board who is endorsed by the Los Angeles County Democratic Party and every Democratic Club in the District. He is also endorsed by the Los Angeles Times, the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Project, the Sierra Club and State Superintendent of Schools, Tony Thurmond.
