Media should unmask these dirty tricksters

I am the recipient of a political flier from Florida Residents for Responsible and Responsive Government, attacking Perry McGriff. Although a committed Democrat, I am neither necessarily for or against McGriff. What I am strongly against is a bunch of unidentifiable people, using a mail drop in a city 300 miles away, who assume that they are qualified to advise us.
And they have it both ways: if we believe them, we will vote against McGriff. If we believe this is just propaganda, it could well cause a backlash against his opponent, Ed Jennings Jr. It is a crime against them both.
This is "dirty tricks" at its worst. I think all of us - concerned citizens, the Democrat and Republican parties and the press - should join up to identify these sleazy politicians. There should be no room for them in our election process.
