Mailer says incumbent has the whiff of trash

Stench of washington

Orange County congressional hopeful Van Tran's latest campaign ad suggests that he didn't get enough "Grape Job!" stickers as a kid. Tran sent voters a particularly foul scratch-and-sniff mailer suggesting that Democratic incumbent Loretta Sanchez smells like hot garbage. This tactic was used in the New York governor's race, too. Carl Paladino sent out a flier that smelled like a landfill (not that many NYC residents would notice). Sanchez blasted Tran for his childish stunt, but she probably brought it on herself by claiming that Republicans were colluding with the Vietnamese to unseat her. Thoughtless and paranoid remarks like that stink worse than Tran's flier.
