All Children Matter really like Darryl Rouson



Pro-voucher group All Children Matter sent out three more campaign mailers in support of State Rep. Darryl Rouson last week.

The mailers shed little light on All Children Matter, an affiliate of a nationwide group of political action committees devoted to helping pro-voucher candidates get elected, and instead showcase Rouson.

"Darryl Rouson Protecting Florida's Values," reads one mailer, the words splashed over the image of a manatee.

"Darryl Rouson Taking Care of What's Important," reads a second mailer, the type set over a picture of Rouson and two of his sons.

For those keeping count, that's makes at least four mailers in less than two weeks.

All Children Matter also supported Rouson when he ran for his seat in a March special election.

This is the second time All Children Matter has helped Rouson. During the March special election. Then, the group sent out a series of three laudatory mailers for Rouson to voters at a cost of about $17,000.
