Senator Schwartz issues statement on attack mailer

Hours after Real Aspen and the Colorado Independent dished on a conservative group's (allegedly) distasteful ad that superimposed her face on Donald Trump, state Sen. Gail Schwartz of Snowmass sent out this statement:
Colorado Senator Gail Schwartz

I appreciate the frustration you as a voter have with the barrage of media and mail you are receiving. I have publicly committed to running a clean campaign for re-election. I have a mail plan that includes several pieces of mail, and I am responsible for the content and cost. My signature is on every mail piece from my campaign and also includes the following statement: Paid for by the Committee to Elect Gail Schwartz. My mail contains statements about my work, my record, and my personal story. It does not attack or even mention of my opponent. The distortion of my physical appearance adds another level to the distortion of facts that WTP actively engages in.

My campaign is about what I can offer the people of my district. The deplorable, hate-filled mail that distorts the public record comes from a variety of independent organizations and federal law appears to allow it. I absolutely do not condone such mail. I believe that it undermines the integrity of our political process, offends basic standards of decency, and degrades our ability to engage in civil discourse. That is why I publicly announced a clean campaign. A long term solution for this problem must be sought at a federal level. I would welcome such reform.

I stand on my record of sound public service to you and the future of Colorado."

Thank you,

Senator Gail Schwartz
