Marin Democratic Party Decries Misleading Mailer in Marin D.A. Race
San Rafael, CA – The Marin Democratic Party is cautioning voters about a misleading mailer in the Marin County District Attorney election from candidate Lori Frugoli. The mailer features the phrase “The Only Democratic Candidate” in large bold font followed by “Endorsed by Every Former Marin County DA” in a much smaller font. Due to the emphasis and treatment placed on the phrase “The Only Democratic Candidate,” the Marin Democratic Party sees this as an attempt to confuse or mislead voters and urges the Frugoli campaign to cease such actions in the future.
During the 2018 Marin Democratic Party endorsement process, the Party’s membership voted to endorse Ms. Frugoli’s opponent, Anna Pletcher.
“We understand that candidates in hotly contested races will often push the envelope in their attempts to mitigate the impact of their opponent’s endorsements,” said Paul Cohen, Chairman of the Marin Democratic Party. “In this case, we felt it crossed the line.”
