Newspaper Cheapshots Nass Opponent

Last week, the Janesville Gazette published what amounted to a question and answer campaign ad masquerading as a news article for incumbent Rep. Steve Nass (R) 31st District.

The funny thing was, was the Gazette deliberately gave the impression that Nass's challenger, Leroy Watson, a Libertarian, refused to cooperate (only Nass' answers were published), yet ran with instead quotes from Watson accusing Nass of not answering any questions. Of course that makes Watson sound like a loon.

In addition, the Janesville Gazette writer did not offer any explanation why Watson was not given the same respect to respond to the questions. Nor did the newspaper claim Watson refused to answer the questions. The Gazette must figure the misinformation is worth it just for some cheap entertainment value.

But Leroy Watson has a point about the people not knowing exactly where Nass stands...
Vote Smart Nass Rated ZERO:
Assembly Member Stephen L. 'Steve' Nass refused to tell citizens where he/she stands on any of the issues addressed in the 2010 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests from Vote Smart, national media, and prominent political leaders.

This candidate has demonstrated 0% courage during the test.

Vote Smart Leroy Watson
This candidate has demonstrated 100% courage during the test.
