Why vote Swinton?

Jay Johnson March 22nd, 2011

Recently I received a bulk-mailed letter from Oklahoma City Council Candidate Charlie Swinton thanking me for my voting record, in which he also acknowledged his opponents who did not make it to the April 5th runoff election.

While I appreciated the tone of his message, I noted a disturbing error.

He praised Janice [sic] Powers' campaign, but she spells her name Janis. Why should I vote for a candidate who neglects to proofread thoroughly material that bears his signature?

Upon further investigation, I have additional concerns. Why should I vote for a candidate who has not provided his voters with a full disclosure of his campaign contributors?
