The ugly side of politics is a side that most people don’t see, unless you’re in the business. It’s hard to understand why a person would want to take down a whole campaign team just because they do not support your candidate. Its sick, sad, and needs to stop. Attacking the candidate themselves is understandable. They signed up for this, right? When a candidate decides to run, they know they would be investigated too and put on display to have every piece of their life sorted through with a fine tooth comb.
But their employers? Their Wives? Their Children? NO! It’s sad when running for an elected office you have to pretty much quit your job, keep your kids in the house, and tell your wife to just smile and look pretty because the local media and the opponent will attack you.
Knoxville DOES NOT want dirty politics. We want a plan for the future. We want a foundation on what you’re going to do if I vote for you. I don’t want to read about your wife and your kids personal business. This frustrates me more than anything else.
I think the media and other candidates slander like this because they don’t have a plan or foundation on why they want to run. Maybe they should figure it out instead of beating a family down with lies and torture. That’s just my free opinion and just like this blog is free, take it for what it’s worth.
