Election Propaganda: Always Follow the Money!
An interesting piece of journalism in the Union Tribune about the shadowy firm that is financing the propaganda behind Dalager and Gaspar's misleading election mailers.
Read: Firm involved in Encinitas mailers was fined in past
The above flyer is filled with shameless lies, like that Barth does not support building the Hall Park. She does support a community park, she just wants an actual financial plan for paying for it unlike Dalager and Gaspar who seem to think magical unicorns are going to ride down on rainbows and build the park for us for free.
The most shameless part of the flyer is Barth's city credit card bill. From the article,
It says Barth also spent more than $9,000 on a city credit card, whereas Dalager in his term spent $81. Barth’s supporters roundly criticized the mailer as highly misleading. Barth said the $9,000 was spent on council-authorized trips to meetings where she represented Encinitas. She also said she does not request city reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses or per diem.
